Item description for Web Development with JavaServer Pages by Duane K. Fields...
Covers all aspects of development for the new versions of the JSP and Servlet specifications (1.2 and 2.3, respectively), including servlet filters and enhancements to the API for JSP Tag Libraries and the interaction between JSP and other J2EE technologies.
Outline Review Web Development with JavaServer Pages is truly an excellent and in-depth tutorial in the effective use of JSPs to build Web applications. Geared toward the Web designer or intermediate Java programmer who's making a transition to JSPs for the first time, this text contains a wealth of information on basic and advanced techniques.
This tutorial is as good as any that's available, and covers all of the necessary JSP directives and syntax. For each directive, possible attributes are listed in convenient tables, which makes this also a worthwhile reference to everyday JSP development that explores the nooks and crannies of JSP APIs, and how pages are built (and cached) on today's JSP platforms.
Web Development with JavaServer Pages also does a good job of showing how to design JavaBean components and integrate them into your JSPs through tags. (Ideally, beans should do the calculation and "thinking" on the middle tier, while JSPs work on the front end.) You'll learn the right way to proceed with JSPs and beans--reinforced via a number of effective code samples. A larger example, a Web database of frequently asked questions (FAQs), demonstrates the big picture with JSPs and beans. Final chapters turn toward a useful aspect of JSP, custom tags, which allow Java programmers to extend the set of available tags for JSP front-end designers. There's even a sample of interactive tags, in which tags work together with other tags, with sample code.
Filled with plenty of details that carry the reader well beyond the basics, this text is one of the better available tutorials for learning JSPs. Its no-nonsense presentation style and useful examples can help put JSP development into the hands of anyone who has some prior HTML or Java experience. --Richard Dragan

Reviews - What do customers think about Web Development with JavaServer Pages?
Entirely too technical Nov 13, 2007
This book is exactly what I *didn't* need. I have a project due in 2 weeks, I don't know JSP and need to create something Yesterday. This book seems to want to tell me everything I don't want to know upfront and saves anything useful for chapters 16+. Reading the first 10 chapters, I don't know if I can make it through the next 6 in order to get to something helpful. Don't buy this book.
Practically Useless Oct 5, 2005
This book is subtitled, "A practical guide for designing and building dynamic web services". Yeah, right. Although the book is aimed at beginning to intermediate JSP developers, the authors fail miserably to communicate to their target audience. Basically, you'll find yourself re-reading section after section, wondering what the authors are trying to say, and why the book is so chock full of Java code listings, with only a smattering of JSP. Other books handle the learning curve of JSP much more effectively. In fact, you're better off just using any of a number of tutorials on the Internet for learning the basics and intermediary aspects of JSP. What the authors should have done is follow the lead set with 'PHP and MySQL Web Development'. In this case, the "practical guide" was practically useless.
Best JSP book Aug 20, 2004
This has been a very good buy for me. It explains all the JSP concepts well and also has very good information on javabeans. If you're a beginner with little or no knowledge in JSP, then this is a great place to start with.
Amazing JSP introduction book Mar 2, 2004
This book can also be used as reference.
Great care is also shown in providing lot of code examples that are on the point in each chapter.
My favourite chapters are "Filters and listeners", "design choices in case of an enterprise system"(whole chapter is dedicated for this) and "how to build custom tags".
Authors approach not only enriches a programmer's mind with JSP details but also in a way that is longlasting.
Great book but not for NEW JSP programmers Oct 1, 2003
Several months ago I was tasked with building several web applications using Java Server pages and had practically NO time to learn and even less help from peers.
I purchased this book and Core Servlets and Java Server pages and for the first 7 months trying to use this book just resulted in pissing me off.
HOWEVER, now that I've become relatively fluent in Servlet/JSP applications I find that this book DOES have some very useful information and I use it more than I use Core.
I recommend that if you're new to JSPs and can only buy one book, buy Core, if you can get two..and are intent on building complex dynamic server side applications BUY BOTH, you'll need this one later!!
