Reviews - What do customers think about JSTL in Action?

My Lord  Sep 9, 2006
It's hard to describe with mere words how incredible this book on JSTL is. Truly Shawn Bayern is the second coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

While this book is great in helping people to learn about JSTL, it's also the latest testament of the Son of Man. Mr. Bayern's writing is excellent, and it so happens that it will be he who leads his flock to glory after the apocalypse.

Those of us who purchase his book will find salvation. The others will be left below.

Shawn Bayern is the Shiznit  Sep 9, 2006
I have not read the book, nor do I plan to. But I do know that Shawn Bayern is the shiznit. Can anyone deny his caustic, "adult" wit? One look at the sultry wench on the cover will inform you of all you need to know if its contents.

good for getting up to speed on JSTL  Jul 9, 2004
This book was very helpful for getting up to speed on JSTL. My company is about to kick off a new struts project, so we needed to get up so speed on using JSTL with Struts. There wasn't much coverage on this, but overall the book was good.
Good Resource all things considered  May 7, 2004
This is a good book to learn about how to use JSTL. It has an excellent reference section, and the body of the book explains how to use the JSTL tags with many good example. On the whole, a very useful, readable book. One negative: The author has a sense of humor which some might find odd, and he interjects it throughout the book; at times it's distracting. But if you can get past that, you'll find this to be a good resource.
Very good JSTL book!  Nov 4, 2003
One way to develop dynamic page content on a web application is to use JavaServer Pages technology. This allows you to embed bits of Java code, or scriptlets, within the HTML page. The web server interprets the scriptlet when the page is called and produces the content that is coded. This is all good, but there are common tasks (such as looping) that each developer had to reinvent from scratch each time it was used in a page. To prevent this repetitive coding, a common set of JSP tags were created to allow developers to concentrate on business logic instead of coding structures. This creation is known as the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL). That's what this book is all about...

The book starts with an examination of how JSP and XML tags come together to form the basis of JSTL. This is followed by a number of chapters that cover the different tags that are used to control branching, flow, text formatting, and other various structures. After the basics of JSTL, the author looks at a number of common tasks encountered by JSP developers and how they would be coded using JSTL. Finally, the book wraps up with reference data needed on a regular basis as you use JSTL, such as the API.

The writing is clear and concise, with an abundance of diagrams and code to illustrate the points. The mix of reference, tutorial, and practical examples is perfect, and every developer will be able to use this book in a number of situations.

Websphere developers (both web application and portlet development) will get the most out of this book when it comes to the IBM/Lotus world. The use of JSTL will reduce the code complexity of your JSP pages and speed up your development efforts.

If you are developing JSP pages and haven't looked into the use of the JSTL area, get this book. It will save you time and effort in your coding, and you'll be glad you did.
