J2EE FrontEnd Technologies: A Programmer's Guide to Servlets, JavaServer Pages, and Enterprise JavaBeansconcisely and accurately describes what you need to know about effective enterprise development based on servlets, JSPs, and EJBs. Servlets, JSPs, and EJBs are the most important aspects of Java as it is used in the production of enterprise Web applications today.Lennart Jorelid's book concentrates on teaching programmers how to fit the various technologies together while spending as little time as possible on "plumbing." Jorelid discusses servlet development and architecture, and he teaches developers how to integrate servlets into distributed enterprise systems with illustrated examples. He explains the architecture and implementation of JSPs-including introductory concepts such as using all built-in facilities of the JSP library and advanced topics such as creating your own custom actions using the JSP Tag Library API. Jorelid also addresses the open-source Struts framework from the Apache Software Foundation, which provides a powerful framework for J2EE Web application development by combining servlets and JSPs. And, finally, Jorelid explores the EJB programming paradigm, covering development and architecture of EJBs and J2EE integration and deployment. J2EE FrontEnd Technologies: A Programmer's Guide to Servlets, JavaServer Pages, and Enterprise JavaBeansprovides developers with a unique approach to understanding the profound relationship between servlets, JSPs, and EJBs. Developers will gain a clear understanding of all three and will be able to harness this knowledge for their own real-world applications.
