I wonder to what extent you've covered the use of EJB in your book and what type of EJB container (if at all) was used.
I think EJB is not covered in the book, as far as I see in the TOC of the book... And the title of the book states only Servlets and JavaServer Pages; the J2EE Web Tier , which means that only web components are covered and business components are not... But I guess there may be some words talking about the connection between Presentation Tier and Business Tier...
So it is not true that Tomcat 5 is the only, or even the first container to support servlets 2.4 and JSP 2.0.
Resin and Tomcat both have been continuously updated to reflect changes in the specs, where Apache have only started calling Tomcat 5 stable after the specs were officially released while Caucho did the same with Resin earlier (at the risk that they'd have to change an official release version for last minute changes in the supported technology).

The other big reason is that we tried to keep this book's focus narrowly targeted on building web applications with Servlets and JavaServer Pages and JDBC should you need a database. You can do a lot with just those API, and we tried to illustrate just about all of the important JSP/Servlet concepts with enough JDBC mixed in to be practical.
Which database is typicall used in the book to connect with the web application developed in the book? Probably MySQL or MS Access? When dealing with JDBC API, does the book discuss about the drivers used to connect to various databases?
Thank you for ur reply...
