When the web transitioned from a publishing to an interactive e-commerce medium, standardised web-browsers entered widespread use and developers were able to rely on a relatively stable client component. Since then, server-side developments have blossomed and resulted in considerable ease of programming, efficiency and increasing sophistication of the server-side environment.
Focusing on various technologies that support the server-side processing of data from web-based forms, principally CGI style programs, scripting and Java solutions, this is a book tailored to the technical and computational components of running a commercial and successful website. To benefit most from this approach, you will have a working knowledge of HTML, some programming experience in Java or C++, and limited experience with databases. Its concentration on server-side to the exclusion of web-page design and client-side concerns will be welcomed by practitioners and students who want hands-on and in-depth guidance on:
Setting up and running an Apache server
Use of Perl for web CGI programming and support administrative tasks
PHP Scripting - ideal for prototyping small web services
JSP - separating the issues of business programming and presentation
XML - a few of its applications
Advanced services with EJBs
NET's new world order - a better model for client/server interaction
The unified presentation allows for evaluation and comparison and cuts down on tedious duplication of content. Use it as a map to navigate the strengths and niches of each of the tools to help judge which best suits your environment and requirements. Realistic examples help to ground this broad coverage of server technologies and will prove invaluable for web masters, systems administrators and students looking for careers requiring web programming skills.

OSGi in Depth
I started working with OSGi in about 2006. This was back in the days of BEA and Web- Logic. Our goal was a very ambitious one: to create a new application server profiled for a particular vertical market—financial front offices.
The journey has been a long one. But as they say, it is not just about...
