From the Publisher
This book is for Java developers who want to take their knowledge to the next level by learning how to apply their skills with JSP and Servlets to practical, real-world issues of web site design. Knowledge of the JSP 1.1 and Servlet 2.2 standards, together with the Java language and core APIs, is assumed. An understanding of XML will be of benefit, but is not essential.
About the Author
Kevin Duffey's work soon shifted to the J2EE technology as it became available. At the time the company application only used Java in the web tier, so Kevin focused on mastering servlets and JavaServer pages. While converting the site to JSP, Kevin discovered that MVC and Model 2 development was superior to his present undertaking and soon started on a path to convert the entire site in that direction, using his own MVC framework.

Top Customer Reviews
Different appraoches have been tried with certain ones emerging as the winners.
This book identifes and describes the winning approaches in:
- session hassels with frames and page layout
- navigation issues
- content management
- use of xml in the web site, etc.
- overview of struts and design pattters based on it.
I have sat in many developer sessions where these problems were being discussed and every one of them would have benefited from the insights in this book.
The book ins't for battle hardend veterns who have discovered these answers already the hard way, it is for up and coming developers who whould rather not have to.
To be fair, the book does have a disclaimer in the beging which states that it's for more advanced users. So if you aren't very very familiar with struts don't start with this book. Once you get past the struts nightmare the rest of the book is pretty good. I wouldn't say the explinations aren't very good but the ideas they present are very usefull.
This book covers following issues
- an overview of web programming with JSP and Servlets.
- Struts Framework.
- a range of basic techniques for handling the client-side of web site design,
which includes HTTP and browser compability,frames,PopUp windows, Page layouts,
the duynamic constructionof site navigation,error handling and logging.
- tecniques for connecting Java web application to relational database, and for
integrating them as part of an overall J2EE solution.
- security and user management,visitor tracking and personalization.
- XML.It looked at the web application framework that uses XML document fragment
rather than JavaBean when passing data around,making it much easier to integrate
with a web services back end.
Many JSP developers will want to read this book to learn about Struts and other
ways of producing maintainable JSP based web sites.
This is not the kind of book you would read from start to finish but as a quick
overview and reference of some advanced topics. Don't expect to become an expert
by reading this book but you will have a good idea what you can and should do with
JSP. Most JSP developers will find something new in this book but some will require
more detail. We would recommend this book to JSP developers who have read the beginners
JSP books and want to learn more about JSP.

It is definitely not a beginner book.
But all the chapters are good even though it was written by different authors. Read more
