The Developer's Guide to the Java(TM) Web Server(TM): Building Effective and Scalable Server-Side Applications Paperback – June 1, 1999
In The Developer's Guide to the Java Web Server, the authors write from their experience building a high-traffic Web site to demonstrate and describe the implementation of servlets and Java Server Pages (JSPs) on the Java Web Server (JWS). The book includes a tour of critical JWS features and essential server-side programming techniques (like CGI and ASPs).
Even with the nod to standard CGI and Active Server Pages, the authors tend to favor Java servlets, especially when combined with JSPs. Provided you can commit to JWS, this servlet/JSP combination is a strong choice. The authors also cover HTML templates, JSP basics, and even include a "how to" section on tracking session information in servlets (through cookies or servlet APIs). The major code example here is a text-based, servlet-powered gaming engine. Readers will also find that the book touches on JWS Web administration, which is graphical and browser-based (thanks to Java).
The book's introduction to coding servlets is as good as any, especially because the authors discuss topics like manipulating thread safety to affect performance. Further sections offer invaluable advice for optimizing servlets and JWS culled from the authors' experience developing a JWS Web site that opened successfully to 2.5 million hits.
Later chapters look at APIs that extend the reach of servlets, from socket and e-mail APIs to JDBC and RMI/CORBA. After tackling servlet debugging, the authors describe ways to "stress-test" servlets, allowing you to ensure your Web site will function when it goes online. Even their checklist for finding the cause of performance bottlenecks is something that every potential JWS developer will want to read! Overall, this text is a must-have resource for building real-world, scalable Web sites powered by Java. --Richard Dragan
"Finally, a much-needed guide to taking full advantage of server-side Java with all the benefits of a commercially supported platform. For anyone doing serious application development in the Internet Age, this is a must-have." -- Phil Inje Chang, Contributing Editor, JavaWorld, CEO, Simpler Software, Inc.
