Dynamic content -- personalized, customized, and up-to-the-minute -- is a key component of site development on the World Wide Web today. Java Server Pages (JSP) is a new server-side technology for generating dynamic content in Web pages and other on-line applications. This guide to JSP covers all aspects of development and includes comparisons to similar dynamic content systems such as CGI, Active Server Pages, Cold Fusion, and PHP. Included is a discussion of the use of component centric design via Java Beans and custom tag libraries for separating the presentation of dynamic data (the layout, look, and feel) from its implementation (the code that generates it).

Review:

Web Development with JavaServer Pages is truly an excellent and in-depth tutorial in the effective use of JSPs to build Web applications. Geared toward the Web designer or intermediate Java programmer who's making a transition to JSPs for the first time, this text contains a wealth of information on basic and advanced techniques.

This tutorial is as good as any that's available, and covers all of the necessary JSP directives and syntax. For each directive, possible attributes are listed in convenient tables, which makes this also a worthwhile reference to everyday JSP development that explores the nooks and crannies of JSP APIs, and how pages are built (and cached) on today's JSP platforms.

Web Development with JavaServer Pages also does a good job of showing how to design JavaBean components and integrate them into your JSPs through tags. (Ideally, beans should do the calculation and "thinking" on the middle tier, while JSPs work on the front end.) You'll learn the right way to proceed with JSPs and beans--reinforced via a number of effective code samples. A larger example, a Web database of frequently asked questions (FAQs), demonstrates the big picture with JSPs and beans. Final chapters turn toward a useful aspect of JSP, custom tags, which allow Java programmers to extend the set of available tags for JSP front-end designers. There's even a sample of interactive tags, in which tags work together with other tags, with sample code.

Filled with plenty of details that carry the reader well beyond the basics, this text is one of the better available tutorials for learning JSPs. Its no-nonsense presentation style and useful examples can help put JSP development into the hands of anyone who has some prior HTML or Java experience. --Richard Dragan

From the Back Cover:

Finally, you can harness the full power of Java within your web pages to create dynamic content. Unlike ASP or CGI scripts, JavaServer Pages (JSP) gives you full access to all the Java APIs. You get true platform-independence, the advantages of object-oriented design, and clean separation of the look of a web page from its underlying business logic.

Web Development with JavaServer Pages systematically covers everything you need to know to create effective web pages and web-based applications with JSP. Starting with the basics of JSP syntax, you'll learn how to put JSP to work in real-world situations. You'll learn how to mix databases and web pages, how to design an elegant and scalable architecture, even how to best divide the labor between page designer and programmer.

The book is full of examples that you can learn from and modify for your own use. They will get you up to speed quickly and help you develop a deep understanding of all aspects of JSP technology.

What's Inside:
* Dynamic web scripting
* Tag-based Java programming
* JSP components
* Custom tag development
* Servlet and page-centric application designs
* Working with databases
* Complete coverage of JSP 1.1 tags and JSP API
* Tons of examples and real code
