Servlets and JavaServer Pages provide a powerful, efficient, portable, and secure alternative to CGI programming for developing professional e-commerce sites and other Web-enabled applications. Here's all you need to leverage the latest J2EE servlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1 standards: real-world insight, advanced techniques, industrial-strength code, and hands-on coverage of three top servlet/JSP engines, including Apache Tomcat.
Part I gives exhaustive coverage of servlets 2.1 and 2.2. Starts with basic syntax, the servlet life cycle, and use of form data. Moves on to leveraging HTTP 1.1, cookies, and session tracking. Advanced topics include compressed Web content, persistent connections, dynamically generated images, and shopping carts for e-commerce.
Part II provides an in-depth guide to JSP 1.0 and 1.1, including advice on when to use servlets, JSP, or a combination of the two. Discusses every standard JSP element, including approaches for integrating JavaBeans. Advanced techniques include sharing beans, generating Excel spreadsheets, and defining custom JSP tag libraries.
Part III covers key supporting technologies: HTML forms, JDBC and database connection pooling, and the use of applets to communicate with servlets.
