Servlets are an exciting and important technology that ties Java to the Web, allowing programmers to write Java programs that create dynamic web content. Java Servlet Programming covers everything Java developers need to know to write effective servlets. It explains the servlet lifecycle, showing how to use servlets to maintain state information effortlessly. It also describes how to serve dynamic web content, including both HTML pages and multimedia data, and explores more advanced topics like integrated session tracking, efficient database connectivity using JDBC, applet-servlet communicaton, interservlet communication, and internationalization. Readers can use the book's numerous real-world examples as the basis for their own servlets. The second edition has been completely updated to cover the new features of Version 2.2 of the Java Servlet API. It introduces chapters on servlet security and advanced communication, and also introduces several popular tools for easier integration of servlet technology with dynamic web pages. These tools include JavaServer Pages (JSP), Tea, XMLC, and the Element Construction Set. In addition to complete coverage of 2.2 specification, Java Servlet programming, 2nd Edition, also contains coverage of the new 2.3 final draft specification.

In addition to authoring Java Servlet Programming, he is publisher of Servlets.com, creator of the com.oreilly.servlet library, a contributor to the Apache Jakarta project that creates Tomcat (starting on the project when it was still Sun internal), a member of the expert groups responsible for Servlet/JSP and JAXP API development, and he holds a seat on the JCP Executive Committee overseeing the Java platform, as a representative of the Apache Software Foundation.

If by some miracle you don't find him at work, he's probably out hiking in the mountains.
