Welcome Karl. I hope you enjoy the conversation here. I have a question about your book. There are many servlet books on the market. What would you say makes the right choice to learn this technology?

A few questions:
1) Is it rational to talk about Servlets and not spend a chapter talking about JSPS, templating engines, XML/XSLT, and Model 1/2 MVC patterns to separate UI/logic/data? On another thread there was a discussion as to why anyone would want to develop a Servlets-only website, and it looks like your book is focused on servlets only.
2) Are filters really all that useful in new webapp development? Are they very efficient in terms of performance, or would a framework approach be a better solution in many cases?
3) What types of performance tips/tricks do you cover in chapter 16? Is it a long chapter?

Seems that your book is more like essays on Servlets, right?
You say this book contains real-world applications. Do these applications form a big application or they are not related to each other?

Does your book have comprehensive coverage on the communication between servlet and applet? Could you elaborate on this ?
