Simon Brown's chapter, #12, is available online and is very well written and useful. Are there any plans for Wrox to make more of the text or the entire text available online?
I, like a lot of people, travel as part of my job and cannot carry every "great" book with me all of the time. It is very nice to have pdfs of some titles on the laptop for periodic reference.

From all the hype out there on taglibs, everyone seems to be using them to simplify common java and/or display tasks but nothing with more "meat" like business logic simplification or bean replacement (e.g. custom tags instead of beans in JSP).
Hoping Simon can elaborate a bit more...8)

One of the biggest headaches for me right now
is understanding how to load properties file
such that the values in the properties file
is available to JSP and other myriad objects
in the innards of webapp.
Q1) One solution I've been using is to
create a servlet whose sole mission in
life is to load the properties file. It
then stores this internally as a protected
member. Other servlets who want to get
access to the contents extends this
propertyFileServlet. Problem arises
when domain objects that are not "SERVLETS"
need those values also.
Q2) Another solution would be to store
the contents of the property file in
the application scope. In this case;
it is available to JSPs/Servlet and
even domain objects that are independent
of the Servlet tier.
Q3) A third possible solution is basically
to separate the property file into two.
One for the servlet/JSP tier and the
domain objects will load their own
Are there other designs that you can propose ?

Hi Simon and Sam,
Does this book have one chapter covering Struts framework?
I will be very delighted to hear the positive answer.

Thanks for taking the time to answer questions here. A question on your new book...
The two new items of the 2.3 API that excited me are filters and better lifecycle event controls (like HttpSessionListener and other new interfaces).
How in-depth does your book delve into these new items? I looked over another new servlet book that touched very lightly on it.

Simon and Sam,
Thanks for writing the books and taking time out to participate in the forums. My questions is this: Is your book only helpful for someone using servlets in a full blown J2EE environment, or is it also helpful to someone like myself and perhaps others who use servlets/JSPs in a web deveopment environment without the use of EJBs/JNDI/etc. ?
