Excellent writing style. BUT, I concur with another reviewer - too many details are left out of the first few chapters and there is an over-reliance on the O'Reilly tag library. I like books that do not require me to download sample code and sit in front of a PC to understand. The writing should be self-contained.
Overall - it reads quite well. But my frustration peaked after chapter 8.

I've been using Java for around 5 years, so I've seen my fair share of books. I just got started on server-side stuff, so naturally I bought a few books - 3 to be exact - on servlets and JSPs.
I liked the short, terse CodeNotes reference that I bought, but the other 2 ... Man, half the time I didn't really understand what I was reading, and I have never seen so many errors in my life! Honestly, I didn't know if it was because the server-side was so confusing or if the authors and publishers (none were O'Reilly) just didn't care.
Then I bought this book and I am once again a happy camper. Both the text and examples are clear, concise, useful, and error-free. I really like the way the author not only explains concepts, but tells me why it is important that I know them.

First things first, I am commenting on the FIRST EDITION. Sadly, the author has chosen to use tags, custom tags in most of the examples. Tags should have been described / explained in a separate chapter, as an optional feature of JSP pages. All I wanted was a simple book to use for quick reference while developing JSP pages. While much of what most developers may want to find is probably in this book, the tags make finding what you want a bit more difficult.
To be fair... there are some very good explanations on server side architectural models. (e.g. JSP coupled with "controller" servlets, database persistence objects and biz objects) for example running under Tomcat.
Anyhow, unless you want to wade through custom tags, buy a different book.

Review
So, you're surfing a web site and hit a web page that ends with the extension .jsp. Looks like a regular web page to you, and if you view the source, it still looks like regular HTML. So what is a .jsp page, anyway? This book will tell you everything you need to know, both as to what they are, how they work, and how you can start using the technology in your development projects. Provided you have a basic understanding of Java, this book will work well for you.
The book starts off with an explanation of what JSPs are and why you would use them. Basically, it provides a way to generate dynamic web pages using snippets of Java code. Logically, it's much like ActiveServer Pages (ASP) code as provided by Microsoft, only using Java instead of Visual Basic. It then goes into the benefits of generating content in this fashion, and how it's a superior method to other technologies such as CGI and ASP coding. The rest of the book then goes into great detail (with a large number of examples) on the specifics of JSP syntax. The author does an excellent job of meshing the approach of a tutorial with actual detail that can be referenced after you start developing applications.
The author assumes the use of the Tomcat J2EE server package to learn JSP technology. Tomcat is a free download from [...] and it's easy to load and configure. But don't dispair if you are using a different web server. The examples are very generic and portable, and with very little effort you can adapt the information to whatever platform you use. In my case, I was using the Websphere platform and had no problems using that server to work my way through the book.
Ok... You're a Notes/Domino developer who is wondering why you should care about this stuff.

Format: Paperback
Many new editions of technical books I have purchased have not entirely been worth the purchase price. Usually the updated material is limited in scope or fairly light. The new edition of this book is definitely worth it. Much of the custom ora tag examples have been replaced with the tags from the new Java Standard Tag Library. Though the ora tags are still used here and there, one has to remember that the section that uses them is targeted at non-Java programmers. Even so, the custom tags he does introduce early on are for pretty specific cases and usually aren't core to the point the example is trying to illustrate.
Han's grasp of the technology is superb as is his vision of how best to utilize it, though I would prefer to see a little more substantiation of some of those views, like a more compelling case for why scriptlets are bad. Personally, I don't find that as much of a detraction as I subscribe to the same design philosophy when it comes to JSP. I just want a third part reference to throw at my teammates when thet write JSPs that I consider bad.
I would have loved to see some teasers from the JSP 2.0 spec, but I think for the general audience it was a wise decision to leave any such out, as they would have just clouded the wealth of features already available in the 1.2 spec.
Overall, I consider this book, especially this edition, an absolute must have in my professional bookshelf.
