Murach’s Java Servlets and JSP, 2nd Edition
This new edition of Murach’s Java Servlets and JSP makes it easier than ever for Java developers to master web programming. It starts by showing how to install and use Tomcat as a web server and NetBeans as an IDE. Then, it teaches how and when to use JavaServer Pages and Java servlets to build well-structured web applications that implement the MVC pattern. Next, it shows how to use sessions, cookies, JavaBeans, Expression Language (EL), the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL), and custom tags. Then, it shows how to use JDBC and connection pooling to work with a MySQL database. Finally, it shows how to use JavaMail, SSL/TLS, authentication, listeners, and filters. These are the skills that you need to build professional Java web applications. A great read for any Java developer.
Ever since we published the first edition of this book back in 2003, we’ve been getting feedback like this from developers:
“This book is excellent, excellent, excellent! The authors have a gift for developing the topic of JSP, Servlets, and building a Java-based ecommerce site in a methodical, easy-to-understand approach.”
Now, I’m delighted to tell you that you’ll feel the same way about this new, 2nd edition. The content has been redone from start to finish, so you’ll learn the best features, tools, and techniques for developing today’s web applications (see what’s NEW below).
But our popular approach hasn’t changed: This 2nd edition still presents Java web programming in a way that’s methodical, easy to understand, and easy to apply to your own web development projects (see what’s the same below).
