Simpler, faster, easier dynamic website development based on new additions to an established and proven technology--that's what JavaServer Pages (JSP) 2.0 is all about. Pro JSP, Third Edition is the most comprehensive guide and reference to JSP 2.0 yet. It equips you with the tools, techniques, and understanding you need to develop web applications with JSP and Java servlets.
The new features of the JSP 2.0 and Servlet 2.4 specifications make developing web applications easier than ever before. The new JSP Expression Language (EL) provides a new, simple language for creating JSP pages and tags. In addition, by also using the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL), you'll never have to use a Java scriptlet or write spaghetti code again.
Beyond covering the JSP and Servlet APIs, this book shows you how to choose and implement the best persistence option for your web applications; how to secure your web sites against malicious attack and accidental misuse; how to improve the performance and scalability of your JSP pages; and how to architect and design your applications to be reliable, stable, and maintainable through the use of design patterns and best practices.
Finally, no JSP book would be complete today without looking at the role that open source projects such as Ant, Struts, XDoclet, JUnit, and Cactus can play in making your web development even easier.
JavaServer Pages (JSP) is one of the two key Java technologies for web development (the other being servlets which are also covered in the book). They are analogous to ASP in the Microsoft world and PHP in the Open Source community. The latest release is version 2.0 (up from 1.2) and is the biggest leap in the JSP specification, soon to be finalized.
In one single text, Pro JSP, Third Edition provides comprehensive coverage of JavaServer Pages, the enhancements in version 2.0 and the most popular associated technologies, including Servlets, JSTL, and Apache Tomcat 5. It takes you through building complex, complete JSP applications in order to further your understanding and additional chapters and individual case studies will be available as a supplemental download.
Guide to using Pro JSP, updated to include the JSP 2.0 and Servlet 2.4 specifications. Covers the new JSP Expression Language, JSTL, and how to write custom tags. For intermediate users. Softcover.

Even without electricity, his father connected the family to the Internet using a 300 Baud modem, a Commodore 64, and a small generator. CompuServe was the name, slow was the game.
