Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Java for the Web with Servlets, JSP, and EJB is an excellent resource for intermediate to advanced level Java developers looking to greatly enhance their web application skills. Every facet of Java web development is tacked by the author in a very pragmatic way, first by introducing real-world business scenarios and then providing detailed solutions to these issues explaining what technologies should be applied and why. The author gets the reader up and running immediately, without wasting their time on theory. He provides countless tips and tricks that will save the reader both time and money. The software alone makes this book an excellent buy. I highly recommend this book to the ambitious Java developer! Deborah Hittel-Shoaf, Acquisitions Editor

I can't believe there is one Java Web book that covers all plus more:
Servlets 2.3, JSP 1.2, EJB 2.0, JavaScript, and teaches you how to use
those technologies in real-world projects. There are so many things you
can't find in other servlet/JSP books.
Here are my favorite chapters:
Chapter 4 gives you wide coverage of how to use JDBC in a Web application.
Chapter 5 is an excellent chapter on session management. Very thorough.
Chapters 6 and 7 discuss the new features of servlet 2.3: application and
session events and filters.
Chapter 12 is only 5 pages but it offers you the technique you don't find
in other Web programming books: how to send a file to the browser and make
the browser display the "Save As" dialog.
Chapter 13 explains how to upload files in depth. This is definitely not
covered in most servlet/JSP books.
Chapter 15 teaches you how to cache your data to greatly improve
performance.
Chapter 17 teaches you how to design your application.
Chapter 27 is full of tips on how to control applets using JavaScript.
Also, the bonus software in the CD is invaluable:
- The file upload bean enables you to upload files effortlessly, you just
need to copy the .jar file into the lib directory under your application's
WEB-INF directory. According to the back cover and the author section,
this bean is licensed by Fortune 500 company Commerce One and the code is
used in the example code of IBM's WebSphere J2EE server documentation!
- The file download makes sending files to the browser error-free.
There are 3 ready-to-use projects:
- E-commerce site based on the Model 2 architecture. This is a perfect
example of how to implement the recommended Model 2 architecture.

This is an excellent book. I'm a Java instructor and this book is structured as if the writer is a teacher and the reader a student. There are no leaps of faith or "assumed" knowledge. The author patiently explains the purpose of all relavent information before easing into new material. Besides being written in a friendly manner, the material is thorough which includes several appendix topics for setting up classpath, etc.
If you're struggling to find a great J2EE book without spending [money] on multiple texts, take a close look at this one.

This comprehensive volume covers Java Servlets, JSP and Enterprise Java Beans technology. Style of presentation is lucid and equips the readers to develop a full fledge e-commerce appplication from scratch. Advanced topics like security configuration,caching, file upload are explained in detail with suitable real world examples which are rarely found in similar books.
Instead of commercial servers, examples are based on free open source server (Tomcat and JBoss) which makes this book all the more interesting for students and developers alike.
This volume is highly recommended for beginners and well as advanced web developers.

I bought this book after reading the author?s article at Java Pro site on file download. That article helped me solved the problem I had had for weeks. Previously I had tried to find the solution in many books, not only servlet/JSP books, but also ASP and PHP books, to no avail. This technique (how to send a file and make the browser display the Save window) is simple, i.e. it works by adding a certain HTTP header. Surprisingly, the author was the first (and probably the only one) to publish such a technique. I think all web programming books should include this important technique.
The book comes with free file download bean that is very easy to use, and also explains how it works. I don?t understand why the other reader from South Africa experienced problems with the bean because the bean works on the server side. Once the file gets sent to the browser, its the browser?s responsibility to save it to disk. Was he using a non-standard browser? (I myself use Netscape and IE) I also disagree with his view on long code. Pages of code, to me, show that the author was really serious in presenting real-world projects. What?s important is the code is well documented and easy to understand, which it is.
The author seems to be a programmer himself. He knows what the real problems in web programming are and offers solutions to them. This is a very good book.

I bought this book, after spending two hours comparing this with the other two popular titles, "Core Servlets and JSP" and "More Servlets and JSP". The three are supposed to be the best titles in the category.
It was not an easy job. The three are well written and explain the concepts very clearly. I failed "Core Servlets" straight away, because it covers Servlets 2.2 and JSP 1.1 and not the more recent 2.3 and 1.2. "More Servlets" has a better cover than this book and it was published by Prentice Hall, a more prestigious publishing company than New Riders. However, looking into the table of contents more closely, I could point out that this book (Java for the Web), with 200 more pages, has much more meat. It beats "More Servlets" in almost all aspects, except that "More Servlets" covers JSTL beta. However, this book covers many more not found in "More Servlets", such as caching, file upload, document management, JavaScript, EJB, Application Design, etc. There is also some freebie software not found in "More Servlets".
After reading half the book, I would say I'm very happy with it. Well done.
