Web Development with JavaServer Pages is truly an excellent and in-depth tutorial in the effective use of JSPs to build Web applications. Geared toward the Web designer or intermediate Java programmer who's making a transition to JSPs for the first time, this text contains a wealth of information on basic and advanced techniques.
This tutorial is as good as any that's available, and covers all of the necessary JSP directives and syntax. For each directive, possible attributes are listed in convenient tables, which makes this also a worthwhile reference to everyday JSP development that explores the nooks and crannies of JSP APIs, and how pages are built (and cached) on today's JSP platforms.
Web Development with JavaServer Pages also does a good job of showing how to design JavaBean components and integrate them into your JSPs through tags. (Ideally, beans should do the calculation and "thinking" on the middle tier, while JSPs work on the front end.) You'll learn the right way to proceed with JSPs and beans--reinforced via a number of effective code samples. A larger example, a Web database of frequently asked questions (FAQs), demonstrates the big picture with JSPs and beans. Final chapters turn toward a useful aspect of JSP, custom tags, which allow Java programmers to extend the set of available tags for JSP front-end designers. There's even a sample of interactive tags, in which tags work together with other tags, with sample code.
Filled with plenty of details that carry the reader well beyond the basics, this text is one of the better available tutorials for learning JSPs. Its no-nonsense presentation style and useful examples can help put JSP development into the hands of anyone who has some prior HTML or Java experience. --Richard Dragan

the authors make it a point to discuss the technology thoroughly with well-placed examples...without a doubt the best book I've read on JSP development.
Marty Hall, author of Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages
"This is the only other one of the JSP books that I consider outstanding...I give it an unbiased enthusiastic endorsement."
The second edition of the bestselling Web Development with JavaServer Pages updates and expands the original. In the entirely rewritten first part of the book the authors provide a gentle introduction to the important technologies on which JSP depends. The book then launches into its updated coverage of the JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.3 standards. New chapters on servlet filters, tag-library validation, and non-HTML content are filled with fresh examples.
This second edition shares the strengths of the first, based on the authors' substantial experience with real-world development. The book covers the complete feature set of JSP 1.2, and both the advantages and the "gotchas" associated with those features. Its depth of coverage has been an important contributor to this book's success.
You'll learn how to use databases in web applications, how to separate the look of a web page from its underlying business logic, and even how to design elegant and scalable application architectures. You can learn from and modify the many examples to get up to speed quickly. And you will develop a deep understanding of JSP technology.

From the Back Cover
Finally, you can harness the full power of Java within your web pages to create dynamic content. Unlike ASP or CGI scripts, JavaServer Pages (JSP) gives you full access to all the Java APIs. You get true platform-independence, the advantages of object-oriented design, and clean separation of the look of a web page from its underlying business logic.
Web Development with JavaServer Pages systematically covers everything you need to know to create effective web pages and web-based applications with JSP. Starting with the basics of JSP syntax, you'll learn how to put JSP to work in real-world situations. You'll learn how to mix databases and web pages, how to design an elegant and scalable architecture, even how to best divide the labor between page designer and programmer.
The book is full of examples that you can learn from and modify for your own use. They will get you up to speed quickly and help you develop a deep understanding of all aspects of JSP technology.
