Hi,
I would like to learn servlet and JSP in detail and would like to know book I should refer to.
I already know Servlets and JSP concepts and I worked on them 5 years back. Now I am preparing for interviews and am getting a lot of questions about Servlets and JSP which are very specific questions:
e.g 1) How do you control the number of threads for a particular servlet instance
-- I answered that it can be controlled using configuration settings and could not answer specifically where
2) How many implicit objects are available in a JSP page
-- I listed 4-5 but could not list all of them

Thus I know the concepts well but am not able to give specific answer. Thus I would like to know if there is any book I can go through for servlets and JSP so as to know these concepts in detail.

I searched through the forums and most of the people are recommending the HeadFirst book. I download the book and have read 2 chapters of book till now. The book is more about concepts and thus am not finding anything new. I want to know if there is any other book I can refer to know servlets and JSP in detail.


Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

The JavaRanch Bunkhouse is a great place to start to find books on such subjects.

There you will find not only lists of books on various web-related subjects, but expert reviews of these books.

Take a look!

Try ArulKumaran's "Good java j2ee interview questions". I've been reading it myself too. See if you feel its helpful.

For the first question, Servlet spec is the correct document to look for an answer. If it is not there then probably depends on the implementation of the web container being used.

For the second question, this can be found int the Head First book (of course in the spec as well).

Cheers,
