  • 5 starsThe best tutorial for the novice

    If you are looking for a book that is going to teach you Servlets and JSP in a very easy way with a lot of hand holding then you are looking for this book. The authors make the assumption that the reader knows the basics of Java but has absolutely no knowledge of internet programming.

    The book starts by guiding the reader through the process of installing Tomcat (all the samples use Tomcat as the servlet engine) and creating a simple HTML page before they introduce you to Servlets and JSP. Servlets and JSP are covered separately and then working together in the Model 2 architecture. The one thing missing from this section is any mention of Struts or other MVC frameworks. Advanced topics such as using SSL and restricting access to a web site are covered very well and in a way that makes it easy to follow and understand. The authors even show how to write your own tag libraries. Unfortunately, no mention is made of JSTL. The authors show how to install and use MySQL and how to code SQL before moving on to explain using JDBC in a web application. The book ends with a complete sample application of an online store including secure credit card handling.

    This is an excellent tutorial that will painlessly teach you how to write complex web applications. I doubt that there is another book available that makes the subject this easy to understand.

  • 5 starsI Highly Recommend this Book!

    This is by far the best Servlet/JSP book I've come across. The authors cut to the chase and explain the important concepts of Servlets, JSP, thread-safe applications, MVC, and web-related XML in a clear and concise manner. Every concept is followed by clear concise example, which makes grasping new topics a breeze. The book is well organized and builds on itself by progressing from JSP to Servlets, to Servlets, web.xml in a well ordered fashion. I am halfway thru the book and I can honestly say Murach's Java Servlets & JSP is head and shoulders above every other Java/JSP/Servlet text I've referenced. If you can only have one Servlet/JSP book, this is the one to get!

  • 5 starsGreat Book for a novice and may be experienced also!

    I am a newbie in java programming and wanted a beginner's book on JSP/Servlet.
    I am more than half way through this book and
    I think this book is the best book on this subject atleast for the beginners.
