Finally, you can harness the full power of Java within your web pages to create dynamic content. Unlike ASP or CGI scripts, JavaServer Pages (JSP) gives you full access to all the Java APIs. You get true platform-independence, the advantages of object-oriented design, and clean separation of the look of a web page from its underlying business logic.
Web Development with JavaServer Pages systematically covers everything you need to know to create effective web pages and web-based applications with JSP. Starting with the basics of JSP syntax, you'll learn how to put JSP to work in real-world situations. You'll learn how to mix databases and web pages, how to design an elegant and scalable architecture, even how to best divide the labor between page designer and programmer.
The book is full of examples that you can learn from and modify for your own use. They will get you up to speed quickly and help you develop a deep understanding of all aspects of JSP technology.
