Product Description

Amazon Review

This book is a superb introduction to Java servlets and their various communications mechanisms. It includes deep and comprehensive coverage of the Java Servlet API, and also of HTTP, non-HTTP socket communications, Remote Method Invocation (RMI) and more. Throughout, the authors present excellent illustrative code and go to much effort to explain why things work the way they do.

The authors (to their credit) do not assume that Java programmers will be familiar with transport protocols or what really goes on when a Web server operates. They begin by showing how to use servlets to generate static pages, then show how to get servlets to generate customised documents in response to requests from the client side. That alone will satisfy many readers' problems. However, the authors go on to tell how to track sessions with servlets, how to carry out secure transactions, how to get servlet threads to communicate with each other, and more. If it can be done with Java servlets, it's discussed in this book. Java Servlet Programming also includes a reference to the Java Servlet API, version 2. --David Wall

From the Publisher

The second edition of this popular book has been completely updated to add the new features of the Java Servlet API Version 2.2, and new chapters on servlet security and advanced communication. In addition to complete coverage of the 2.2 specification, we have included bonus material on the new 2.3 version of the specification.

This book is excellent. I actually own both editions 1st (1998) and 2nd the 1st edition should really be left alone as it is now quite dated but the 2nd edition is perhaps one of the best books I have read on servlets. It has clear explanations and the author obviously knows the subject extremely well. There are a few typos but programmers will spot these and the eratta is pretty good on the oreilly site any way.

Format: Paperback
There are a lot of reasons to love this book. (1) It is really well organized. As the authors say, read the 1st 5 chapters, then just read whatever chapters you need. (2) It stands alone- it doesn't get bogged down in details, but if you know this book you will know servlets. (3) Excellent tutorials and sample code- the examples are very helpful. I learned more from the RMI code snippets than from other sources dedicated to RMI! (4) Very well written.
I would write more if I had time, but to sum it up- buy this book!

Above comments by reviewer 'rfletch6@yahoo.co.uk' are incorrect because this new edition does cover Servlet API 2.2 This book is ideal for anyone wanting to learn how to program Java Servlets.

for a beginner(i.e me), this book isn't at all intimidating. It's a good introduction to servlets and it has enough substance to last way beyond that stage. Quick response from the author on a query too. Very, very good.

This book provides a very solid introduction to using servlets, (and to a lesser extent JSP), and if you know some basic Java already you will be up and writing code quickly. I think, however, it's may be worth holding on for a new edition as many of the examples are based on an older version of the Servlet API (2.0) and some of the techniques no longer work. The chapter on Interservlet Communication is particularly useless if you're using the new API as many of the methods used were seen as potential security loopholes and have now been deprecated.

A really useful practical introduction to writing Servlets including excellent sections on security and authentication, receiving and serving files over HTTP, and JDBC. It’s a little out of date now, but if you are looking to build a website with Java technologies, or if you want to learn a good alternative to the MS proprietary stuff, this is a really good place to start.

If I were to review this book on Chapters 1-9, 12,13 alone I would have given this book a rating of 5 stars.
Unfortuantely the book is rather dated (10 years old in May 2008), makes use of variable name "enum" a lot, which won't compile on more recent versions.
Chapters 1-20 take up 590 pages. Pages 591-720 are taken up by Appendices/Index. Appendices A-C are to some extent a waste of space. Servlet/HTTP Servlet API reference make up Appendices A/B. I prefer to use up to date Javadoc. Appendix C Diagrams C1/C2/C3 are useful. The rest is bloat.
Chapters 14-18 describe different "view" technologies that are with the exception of JSP obsolete, surpassed by newer technologies.
Chapter 17 on XMLC was a waste of time, you don't even get XMLC command to translate HTML pages to Java classes when you download their stuff!
Tea and ECS were interesting & I liked them. But some of Tea examples don't work. Commenting out "%>" causes problems on same line. Needs to be on next line..
Webmacro examples needed bringing up to date to work with lastest release. Now surpassed with Velocity/FreeMarker.
Chapter 18 on JSP forgets to package classes. Tomcat doesn't like unpackaged classes.. Also author forgets to use includes directive in source download/book.
Also casually mentions using init parameters. Be sure to use context-param. not servlet init-param! A comment in toolview.jsp code to the effect that "application.getInitParameter uses context-param NOT init-param" or a copy of web.xml in source download for chapter 19, would not have gone amiss here!
Also there was an example using Struts tags in Ch18, which I couldn't for life of me get to work & emailed author with no response on this issue..
