"Using clear, colloquial language and copious code examples ... the book builds a foundation that allows readers to understand concepts by practicing actual, hands-on programming... In both the code and the accompanying prose, the author demonstrates efficiency and clarity, two qualities necessary in the practice -- and instruction -- of programming." - Kirkus
"Five Stars (out of Five) ... a clear, concise guide to writing Java code for web servers ... [This book] is a welcome addition to contemporary computer science literature... [The author] does an admirable job. ... Prasad's prose is clear and concise, two virtues uncommon in technical writing." - Clarion ForeWord
".. This is a very different, and rather interesting, approach than is usually taken... This approach works pretty well, making the reader acquainted not just with the specifics of servlets and JSPs, but also provides some detail on why certain features of the web are as they are..." - JavaRanch
"[This book] is a straight-to-the-point, no-frills introduction to Java server side programming that teaches the concepts of servlets, JavaServer Pages, and Java web servers through a unique deep-dive approach... I was fairly comfortable with Java servlets and JSPs before reading [this book]. However, I still found the book interesting and even insightful. I tried to imagine how helpful the book would have been to me when I was first learning these technologies and I believe that I would have found it tremendously helpful." - JavaLobby DZone

Java Server Side Programming: The Conceptual Foundation features numerous code examples and explanations with very little extraneous text. You won't find significant background and historical information in this book that you might find in other introductory Java web server books. You also won't find an index or elaborate material before the main chapters. The book is extremely focused on technical details with little additional ceremony. There are no fancy graphics or pictures, but the emphasis is on technical prose and code.
Java Server Side Programming: The Conceptual Foundation focuses entirely on Java web server concepts and does not cover other enterprise Java subjects such as Enterprise JavaBeans, Java Message Service, JNDI, CDI, etc.
Java Server Side Programming: The Conceptual Foundation demonstrates that it is surprisingly simple to implement a simplified Java web server. Once one sees how a Java web server, servlets, and JavaServer Pages might be implemented and why certain features might be included in that implementation, it is easier to understand the introduced features of standardized Java web servers, servlets, and JSPs.
