Amazon.com: Written with the busy Java Web developer in mind, Instant Java Servlets offers an impressive mix of hands-on sample code that will solve many common programming problems. This practically minded guide to servlet and Java Server Pages (JSPs) can be a valuable time-saver for anyone tackling Java development for the first time.

Instant Java Servlets is organized as a tutorial with each section framed by a problem, such as how to retrieve HTML form variables within servlets, preserve session state, redirect and forward requests, and many other common questions that everyone sooner or later faces when working with servlets. Each problem is explained and illustrated with a sample servlet. Besides the basics, standout sections here include a working shopping basket for an online grocery store, debugging tips, and how to upload files to a server. Tips for structuring your servlets to generate HTML more effectively (including frames) provide absolutely indispensable expertise for any serious Java developer. The short, comprehensible code excerpts in this title can save you lots of time solving common problems. (One nit here is that many of the screen shots appear slightly blurred, although this shouldn't interfere in any way with reading the book.)

Besides a solutions-based framework, the author presents a good tutorial of servlet programming, which makes this text a good choice for anyone entirely new to servlets. Later, a long chapter on JSPs looks at expressions, directives, and using scriptlets and JavaBeans within JSPs. The book closes with several interesting Web applications, which illustrate topics like image conversion and working with e-mail. With over 100 self-contained sample servlets and JSPs, Instant Java Servlets will be a welcome choice for any developer who wants to work with Java effectively. It's a no-nonsense tutorial and reference that compiles a rich array of reusable sample code that really can help you save time when putting server-side Java to work in real-world projects. --Richard Dragan

Customer Reviews
Good reference book, September 26, 2000
Reviewer: Howard R. Sims from Fort Lauderdale, FL USA

Good reference book. I use it daily. And the format of "How - to do this?" is very helpful. Plus the author responds to email questions quite readily. And, at 820 pages, it covers most topics.

Full of useful code and not obsolete at all, September 22, 2000
Reviewer: A reader from Morrisville, NC

This book is packed with useful code examples that are explained in a very clear manner. While a couple of other reviewers have complained that the content is obsolete, they forget that most production servlet engines are not up to the latest specs, either. Many of us programming in the real world can benefit from this book.

obsolete and missing code, September 13, 2000
Reviewer: JOSEPH GATTA from port washington, ny USA

only covers servlet 2.1 spec and jsp 1.0 spec. in addition, the code for the connection pool is missing a class(RefreshThread) and an interface(Refreshable). if anyone knows where this code resides please send e-mail to joe.gatta@lmco.com thanks.


The only Servlets book I found worth buying, September 8, 2000
Reviewer: James Kauczka from NJ USA

I began reading it right away and can't put it down... I love the examples and their corresponding explanations. Since my purchase I have at least 6 others in my department who have also purchased it and they all love it. I wish I had this book 2 years ago before I started programming in Java/Servlets. This is the best technical book I have ever read.
