If you're considering a move toward Sun's Java Web Server (JWS), this thorough and enthusiastically written guide to server-side Java may be the deciding factor. Besides essential server administration and development tips, this book covers many exciting Java server-side technologies.
The authors of Core Java Web Server argue consistently that JWS offers a better way. Early sections show how to install JWS on Windows NT, Windows 95, Solaris, and Unix. The tour of basic Web administration is useful to anyone who is setting up JWS for the first time.
Next comes an introduction to servlets--Java code that executes on the server. The authors cover generic servlets first and examine strategies and essential Java APIs for developers. Then they explain the basics of the HTTP protocol and servlets that generate HTML on the fly. These chapters provide crucial advice that will be useful for any serious Java Web developer. (Java servlets offer many distinct advantages over traditional Common Gateway Interface [CGI] scripts.)
Later chapters show you that there are some tricks you'll need to know to implement servlets effectively, including material on such topics as caching and session management (using built-in Java APIs). The book closes with new server-side technologies from Sun, such as Server Beans, and Java Server Pages (JSP). --Richard DraganFrom the Back Cover:
* Features practical guidelines for installing, configuring, optimizing, and troubleshooting JWS
* Provides extensive coverage of Java Server Pages (JSP) and security - including authentication, ACLs, and realms
* Also includes a complete overview of the Servlet API - with real-life coding examples
Dynamic, flexible, and easy to use, the Java Web Server is the first full-fledged Web server written in Java and the first to support Sun's hot new servlet technology. Taylor and Kimmet show you exactly why Java Web Server is the ideal platform for next-generation Web applications. First, you'll walk through the installation and configuration of Java Web Server on several different operating systems. Next, you'll master key features of the product, including extensible security, virtual hosting, logging, and aliases. You will also learn practical administration, troubleshooting, benchmarking, and optimization techniques.
Core Java Web Server delivers:
* Real development scenarios—and real solutions
* Tips for improving JWS performance with caching
* Detailed coverage of session management
* A rigorous walk-through of JWS security features
Series editor Cay S. Horstmann, co-author of the wildly successful Core Java, brings his unique perspective to the Core Series - books written by serious programmers for serious programmers
Every Core Series book:
* DEMONSTRATES how to write commercial code.
* FEATURES dozens of nontrivial programs and examples—no toy code!
* FOCUSES on the features and functions most important to real developers.
* PROVIDES objective, unbiased coverage of cutting-edge technologies—no hype!
CD-ROM includes extensive sample code, along with tools for streamlining servlet development you won't find anywhere else.
