<pre>Author/s : Marty Hall Publisher : Prentice Hall PTR Category :J2EE & Distributed Computing Review by : Madhav Lakkapragada Rating : 9 horseshoes</pre> The book takes a very practical approach to teaching Servlets and JSP. It is a follow-up of the earlier book Core Servlets and JSP and the explanation follows a very similar pattern. This book deals with Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 specifications, though. Well, except for the introduction to JSP some portion of which uses the 1.1 pecification.I felt that this was redundant. I mean why introduce a topic in 1.1 specification when you clain the book to be following 1.2 specification. However, the author later explains the differences in a whole new chapter by itself with examples following the 1.2 Specification. The source code is available online and the text book gives a good explanation of the relavent topic. This book also deals with web-applications including detailed chapters on the deployment, security and filters. The author takes the pain of explaining where each file goes using three different servers. I would say that this is the highlight of the book. If you already have the "Core Servlets and JSP", I doubt this book would add too much value except for the newer topics. If you don't have that book then I would recommend this book.
