I 've read the first 60 pages and I still feel confused. There was barely a "Hello world" example..
My background has a little bit of java.. I am not sure if this book is made for beginners.. Though I can understand what I read, I cannot find any connection between the topics..
I did not even find any explanation about some terms like "servlet" etc..
I went quickly through the book just to see the areas that covers and I was disappointed that there was no implementation for a secure login system where the credentials are kept in a database.
I 'd love to see more comments by other people.. maybe my background is too poor for this book.. I believe this book is NOT for people who have a basic knowledge on programming or are completely beginners.
For now I gave only 2 stars. I 'll keep reading the book and I 'll come back to add a few comments or even change the rate!

All his instructions on getting all you need, downloading, installing, configuring, are clear enough. A few typos here and there in the book. Really worth the price of the book!
Not sure though this is for "don't know anything about programming" reader! But for one who has already done some programming, I'm sure this is an excellent book.
In my opinion, this book assumes a prior basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and Java programming. It builds upon that information by introducing the reader to JSP. I gave the book 5 stars for the following reasons...
1) The book walks you through installing all of the (free) software that you need to get started working with JSP. I was instructed to install Eclipse (a Java IDE), and Tomcat (web server software). This software can be found (and downloaded) for free on the Internet.
2) The book also walks you through configuring Eclipse and Tomcat.
3) The book comes with downloadable example files and an example web-app that you can load, examine and edit, etc.
The book also has you construct a simple shopping database using MySQL to support your example applications. You don't need to be a MySQL expert to set this up, however. Another plus is that the author takes you through the basics of how the Tomcat server is constructed. I've always been afraid to peer inside the folders of this server, but after reading this book I have more confidence in messing with the context.xml and server.xml files.
