Book Description: Java servlets are fast becoming indispensable enterprise components, as they provide a means to build scalable and portable business services that communicate over the Web. This book provides a comprehensive guide to developing applications based on the Java Servlet 2.3 API, a part of the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition 1.3.

The book reveals how and where servlets fit into an enterprise solution, and addresses issues such as security, scalability, performance and design. It walks you through the API covering the role of all the classes and interfaces and provides lots of example applications to demonstrate servlets in action. The book also covers the key role that servlets play in the new web services development model.

What does this book cover?
• The servlet container and the services it provides
• Creating and deploying web applications in Tomcat
• Persisting the state of servlets
• Filters and Event Listeners
• Security and Container Authentication

• The effects of classloading and synchronization on the behavior of web applications

From the Publisher: This book is for Java programmers who are moving into working with J2EE components and want to learn how to apply their skills to create real-world web components.

Knowledge of the Java language and core APIs is assumed. An understanding of XML will be of benefit, but is not essential.

Customer Reviews
Great Servlet Technology Resource, February 8, 2002
Reviewer: Dan Jepp from London, UK

Another great book from Wrox's Professional Series.

A more concise (700 pages) book than other in the 'Professional' range that I feel benefits from a great choice of chapters that not only provides you with the basics of Java Servlets but also those topics often skipped over elsewhere.

Covering the new Servlet 2.3 API, deployment issues, filtering, scaleability techniques etc, this book provides a comprehensive insight to the use of Servlet Technology and best practices in the real world.

Aimed at the profesional Java developer this book is an excellent resource for anyone currently working with Servlets/JSP/Webapps or any one wishing to learn Java Servlet Technology.

I worked as a Technical Reviewer on this book and can personally vouch for the excellent array of chapters each packed with easily adaptible, real world examples.
