9780201379631: Inside Servlets: Server-Side Programming for the Java(TM) Platform

With superior performance, cross-platform portability, and crash resistance, Java(TM) servlets offer the technical advantages that Internet developers need and high traffic Web sites demand. Inside Servlets teaches everything you need to know to exploit the power and portability of Java servlets for your Internet applications. Providing a tutorial, advanced guide, and reference, the book begins with a comprehensive introduction to servlet technology, architecture, and basic programming concepts intended for client/server developers and others who may be new to Internet programming. It then progresses into the advanced techniques experienced developers need to create sophisticated, interactive Web sites. In particular, you will find thorough coverage of: *Java(TM) Servlet API *Debugging servlets *Concurrency (thread safety) *HTTP redirects *Cookies *State and session management *Server-side includes *Request forwarding *Cross-servlet and cross-request communications *Database access with JDBC(TM) The accompanying CD-ROM includes all code examples from the book as well as the following applications: *Java(TM) 2 Platform (Java(TM) 2 SDK, Standard Edition, v1.2) *JRun(TM) 2.2 servlet engine from Live(TM) Software, Inc. *ServletKiller 1.1 servlet stress tester from Live Software, Inc. *ServletExec(TM) 2.0 servlet engine from New Atlanta Communications, LLC *Protocol Explorer troubleshooting utility written by the author In addition, the book features several annotated sample servlets that demonstrate concepts and provide working code for solving real-world programming challenges. A convenient Java Servlet API reference (based on the final 2.1 specification) keeps vital information at your fingertips, making this book an exceptionally valuable development companion. In all, this up-to-date resource provides the advanced concepts and practical techniques needed to make full use of Java servlets for your Internet development projects. 0201379635B04062001

From the Inside Flap:

Future generations will likely rank the Internet alongside the printing press, the airplane, and the personal computer as one of the most revolutionary technologies in history. After seemingly lying dormant for more than two decades, the Internet has emerged from obscurity to capture the interest and imagination of people around the world. One of the primary factors driving this phenomenon is the astounding popularity of the World Wide Web. Globally accessible via the Internet, the Web has forever changed the way information is published and distributed. The first goal of this book is to familiarize you with the underlying technologies that drive the Internet and the World Wide Web.

The Java programming language is another emerging technology whose potential is just beginning to be recognized. Due to its platform-independent nature, standard network interfaces, and many other advantages, Java is the ideal language for Internet programming. Although initially popularized by applets capable of running on any client, the true power of Java is being realized on the server. Among other things, server-side Java allows developers to build dynamic Web sites using a powerful, object-oriented language that is completely portable across virtually all operating systems and hardware. By writing programs for the Java platform, you are in essence developing applications for all existing platforms--from mobile phones to mainframes and everything in between. This kind of portability and cross-platform functionality isunprecedented.

The Internet relies on open standards to ensure that all clients have equal access to the vast amount of information it provides. Similarly, standards are essential to the advancement of the Java platform. Sun Microsystems, Inc., in cooperation with many industry partners and other interested parties, has created a standard for developing server-side Java programs that extend andenhance the functionality of the server. Known as the Java Servlet API, this standard ensures that all servlets will run properly on all platforms for which a Java virtual machine is available.

By conforming to the Servlet API specification, you can guarantee that all of your server-side programs will run on any platform that fully supports Java. After presenting Web development fundamentals, the second and primary goal of this book is to provide an in-depth understanding of Java servlets and the Servlet API through discussion and example.What's New in This Edition

This edition of Inside Servlets both revises and expands upon the first edition. Primarily, the bulk of the revisions update the text and source code to conform to version 2.2 of the Java Servlet Specification. In addition to conforming to the new specification, the breadth and depth of the book has been greatly expanded. The second edition of Inside Servlets provides comprehensive coverage of several new topics, including security, JavaServer Pages, packaging and deployment, and servlet troubleshooting. The chapter on database access has also been greatly expanded. Finally, this edition includes improved sample servlets, an updated quick reference section, and a complete review of version 2.3 of the Java Servlet Specification.Intended Audience

In general, this book was written for anyone interested in using server-side Java to build dynamic, data-driven Web sites or other networked applications. To this end, Inside Servlets: Server-Side Programming for the Java(TM) Platform, Second Edition, presents an in-depth review of the Servlet API as well as advanced programming concepts essential for successful servlet development. These concepts include writing thread-safe servlets, session management, database access, and security.

More specifically, the book is intended for programmers and consultants who desire to learn Web development fundamentals in addition to server-side Java programming. Much of this audience likely consists of current client/server programmers. After all, in an increasingly Internet-centric world, many client/server programs are being redeveloped as Web applications. This decisionis often driven by the fact that Web applications offer significant distribution and maintenance advantages over traditional client/server systems.

Because Java servlets may represent your first foray into Web development, the first part of the book is dedicated to teaching the basics of the Internet and the World Wide Web. Although basic Web concepts are presented, the Java programming language is not taught. This book assumes a basic knowledge of object-oriented programming and the Java language. If you are not familiar with Java, I recommend reading the Java primer in Java in a Nutshell by David Flanagan. This primer is especially well suited to C programmers. Another personal favorite for learning about Java is Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckel. If you do not already know Java, you may want to have one of these books available as a reference while reading this book. 0201709066P04272001
