Beginning JSP 2: From Novice to Professional

Front Cover

Let Beginning JSP 2 be your guide as you begin using JSP. This comprehensive guide starts by steering you through your first JSP application. It reviews HTML, and provides you with a useful overview of JSP. You’ll then be ready to start learning one of the core techniques in JSP: pulling data from a database and working with that data.

When you’ve mastered this technique, you’ll be ready to branch out powerfully into other JSP topics: variables, scope, flow control, and code reuse for productive time management. Finally, the book shows you how you can use JSP with XML and gives you a taste of some advanced topics, including using Struts and the Model View Controller.

This book's step-by-step examples explain the techniques behind the code. The authors include realistic scenarios wherever possible to build your knowledge and confidence in JSP. After reading this book, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to enter the web development and Java development industries. All you need to begin this journey is a basic understanding of HTML and Java.
