Can anyone recommend books on JSP for beginners with plenty of code examples of real life applications that one can play around with in their own code? [ June 25, 2002: Message edited by: Rob Petterson ]
Thanks Jessica. I�ve just passed my SCJP yesterday and I want to write a couple of web sites using JSP amongst other things - (basically I'm trying to get a port-folio together in order to get a job). Any other tips as to what type of site / functionality I should build baring in mind I'm very green.
This is not meant to be a plug, but when you've got the JSP basics covered, check out some of the tag library stuff (also know as JSP tag extensions). These reusable components really do help you build more readable and maintainable systems which (IMHO of course) is a definite plus-point for getting a job. Good luck with the learning, and if there is anything that we can all help you with, you know where to find us. Cheers Simon
Thanks everyone for the book suggestions. Can anyone perhaps point me at a URL that uses JSP, XML so I can get a snapshot of the type of web apps that are out there. Also if someone could at least point me in the right direction as to a suitable app that I can develop (nothing too complicated, but then again, something that a future boss would sit up and look at). I�m very green, but you�ve got to start somewhere haven�t you?
