With superior performance, cross-platform portability, and crash resistance, Java(TM) servlets offer the technical advantages that Internet developers need and high traffic Web sites demand. Inside Servlets teaches everything you need to know to exploit the power and portability of Java servlets for your Internet applications.

Providing a tutorial, advanced guide, and reference, the book begins with a comprehensive introduction to servlet technology, architecture, and basic programming concepts intended for client/server developers and others who may be new to Internet programming. It then progresses into the advanced techniques experienced developers need to create sophisticated, interactive Web sites. In particular, you will find thorough coverage of:

  • Java(TM) Servlet API
  • Debugging servlets
  • Concurrency (thread safety)
  • HTTP redirects
  • Cookies
  • State and session management
  • Server-side includes
  • Request forwarding
  • Cross-servlet and cross-request communications
  • Database access with JDBC(TM)
The accompanying CD-ROM includes all code examples from the book as well as the following applications:
  • Java(TM) 2 Platform (Java(TM) 2 SDK, Standard Edition, v1.2)
  • JRun(TM) 2.2 servlet engine from Live(TM) Software, Inc.
  • ServletKiller 1.1 servlet stress tester from Live Software, Inc.
  • ServletExec(TM) 2.0 servlet engine from New Atlanta Communications, LLC
  • Protocol Explorer troubleshooting utility written by the author

In addition, the book features several annotated sample servlets that demonstrate concepts and provide working code for solving real-world programming challenges. A convenient Java Servlet API reference (based on the final 2.1 specification) keeps vital information at your fingertips, making this book an exceptionally valuable development companion. In all, this up-to-date resource provides the advanced concepts and practical techniques needed to make full use of Java servlets for your Internet development projects.
