". . . one of the new wave of Servlet books coming onto the market. I put this book to the ultimate test. I needed to learn servlets very fast for a client and it succeeded. In conclusion, this book really helped me out in a pinch and I do refer to it. It is a good book to use to start learning about Servlets."

Claude Duguay, Java Zone Book Review of the Week, January, 2000
"Alan Williamson has done an admirable job of teaching servlet programming through useful, typically non-trivial examples that demonstrate real-world solutions to common problems. If you plan to work with servlets (or already work with them) Java Servlets By Example will help you hone your craft and allow you to draw on some good ideas in the process.

The layered unveiling of concepts, clear explanations, and effective communication make Java Servlets By Example an excellent choice for novice or expert servlet developers alike. The examples are numerous and pragmatic, providing a practical look at the development process and exploring potentially useful foundations you can take and apply in a real commercial solution. In all, this book delivers on the promise of teaching servlet programming by example and represents a fine investment for almost any Java programmer."

Book Info: Explains and illustrates the concepts of servlet programming. Introduces a new server applications in each chapter. Softcover. DLC: Java (Computer program language).

Worst of Servlet books, November 5, 1999
Reviewer: vulinh from California, US

I was curious about this book when I read this review page, so I decided to get one just to see how bad it is. And it's bad really. All I can say is: it's the worst one. The author says so much about unimportant topics, while he doesn't concentrate on other more important things much. I recommend Java Servlet Programming by Jason Hunter and Inside Serlvets by Dustin Callaway.

A great start to servlets, June 29, 2001
Reviewer: dietcoke77 from Boston, MA USA

The negative reviews on this book smack of a political witch hunt against the author. This is an excellent starter book for servlets that contains realistic examples that work. Are there some negatives, sure - there are in all books. As a whole, this book is a useful reference and a good read. I have and would recommend it again to folks starting out with Servlets.

Crazy reviews, January 2, 2001
Reviewer: C A Herbaut from Delft Netherlands

Most of the reviews are so unreasonably negative that I have decided on 5 stars, although I think 3 1/2 is about right. The examples are not so trivial and are in fact useful. The way each problem is presented is, I think, pretty good. The author covers plenty of popular topics such as online shopping, search engines, chats, RMI and JDBC. I like the way the code is given piece by piece and then finally in its complete form. Why other readers found this approach so awful is a mystery to me. It's certainly far from being a waste of money.
