About the Author

Matt Raible is a Montana native who grew up in a log cabin without electricity or running water. He would hike to school a mile and a half every day (skiing in the winter), and would arrive home to a very loving family. "The Cabin" is a beautiful place that will always be near and dear to him. 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. Matt became inspired by the Internet in the early 1990s, and has been developing websites and web applications ever since. He graduated from the University of Denver in 1997 with degrees in Russian, international business, and finance.

I have been a Java developer for five years now, and have worked with JSP and Servlets for a number of years. As many in the software industry can attest to, you can quickly get tied down working on applications that were initially designed several years ago. This can leave you with little time to explore all the new features that come out with the latest release of the Servlet and JSP specs. Wanting to get a handle on what JSP 2.0 has to offer, I decided to get a book on the subject matter that starts from the ground up. Although a lot of the material would be review for me, I always find it important to read this information over again as it helps to strengthen my overall understanding.
`Pro JSP' is probably one of the best books on JSP that I have read in a long time. To me a good technical book needs to do three things. First it needs to explain how the technology works. Second, it needs to explain how best to use this technology in the real world. And finally, it needs to do the first two things in a clear and understandable manner. The reader shouldn't be left scratching their head trying to figure out what the author was trying to say.
On the first point, `Pro JSP' does a thorough job of explaining the ins and outs of the JSP 2.0 release. The expression language, JSTL, tags, filtering, security, deployment; all of these important topics are covered. There are an amazing three chapters devoted to tags and another two chapters on filtering! The authors do an excellent job of focusing in on some of the more complex aspects of JSP and spending the time to fully explain all the nuances. Based on just the technical content alone, a person will walk away from this book with a solid understanding of the power available to them with JSP 2.0.

When I first bought this book was totally new to JSP and XML. I started reading it and then i realize that it was not a beginners book. It was great because it would force me to study a little bit more. I read a XML and JSP tutorial and it was enough to begin studying JSP with this book.
It has lots of detailed information about client/server persistence graphics and models too.
I bought this book because the history of the author, Simon Brown, and the last edition was five star recomendation on JavaRanch and Amazon reviews.
