Format: Paperback
This book should be about Tomcat 5 with some supporting examples that are related to configuring and running Tomcat. It is not the case here. There are pages and pages of complete JSP implementations, quite detailed explanation about implementing MVC controller for example, JAAS (good thing but more useful for EJB's; I'd rather read something about JDBC authentication that is used in servlets, but there is none about it here), or a lot of other approaches to JSP and servlets (with full code spanning several pages). Great thing. But what about Tomcat? Oh, yeah, and .... "you run all these great things with Tomcat". That's pretty much it. This is a book about JSP development and not even a bit about Tomcat. I already know JSP and the reason Im buying this book because I need to know about.....Tomcat! The book should also cover Tomcat 5.5. Not a word inside about 5.5 (hardly anything about 5.0!) So, do not waste money on this book. Get APRES's Pro Jakarta Tomcat 5 by Matthew Moodie if you wanna know anything about Tomcat 5.0 AND 5.5 (both covered with examples given for both, and some JSP code ONLY to help you understand how Tomcat works!)

If you program Java servlets and JSPs, chances are good that you are using Tomcat. It provides a very well debugged container for your applications. Here, Moczar walks you through version 5, the very latest.

He takes a lot of the mystery about what J2EE is, if you decide to use Tomcat to hold J2EE applications. He illustrates with a very common 3 tier architecture - client, middle and back tiers. Most crucially, with the middle tier being subdivided into a presentation layer, controller, business logic and a lowest layer that talks to the back tier. A lot of the book essentially fleshes out how Tomcat acts as a container to hold that middle tier. Plus, within that tier, how JSPs and servlets can be used to make each layer. Of course, there are many details. But if you keep the overall framework clear in your mind, then you should have no problem following his narrative.

The last part of the book is more suited for Tomcat sysadmins. Programmers usually will not need much material from this section.

After a useful chapter 1 "Quickstart", the text plunges quickly into mind-boggling complexity, including lengthy initial "Security basics", philosophic "Overview of JEE application development", "Web application principles", "Web application design", and a do-it-my-way "Setting up a development environment" chapters. Do we have to have Ant and MySQL installation at the start? Finally, chapters 9 and 10 are helpful for those who either persevered or skipped ahead.

Publishers should require better writing skills from their authors and "cut-the-crap".
