EMPOWERING PRODUCTIVITY FOR THE JAVA™ DEVELOPER
Beginning JSP,™ JSF,™ and Tomcat™ Web
Development: From Novice to Professional
This book tells you what you need to know to develop Java™-based web applica-
tions with JavaServer Pages™ (JSP™), JavaServer™ Faces (JSF™), and Tomcat.™
In less than one and a half decades, the Web has become a platform capable
of delivering complex and powerful applications. At the same time, a bewilder-
ing variety of technologies and products has been introduced, all jostling for
recognition and market share.
We decided to write this manual on the basis of two considerations: one
technical and one human in nature. The technical consideration was that the
alignment of JSP 2.1 and JSF 1.2 achieved with Java Platform, Enterprise Edition
5 (Java EE 5), and the subsequent release of Servlet 2.5 and Tomcat 6, had finally
realized full consistency across the whole platform. The human consideration
was that, although a lot of information and documentation is available by
searching the Web, there is a need for a compendium capable of taking a reader
through all the steps necessary to build a Java-based web application.
In our endeavor to cover all the subjects you’ll need, we have included chapters
dedicated to HTML, JSP, databases, JSF, Tomcat, and XML, and sections on Java
(SOAP) and provided detailed references for HTML, JSP, JSF, and SQL.
This is a practical manual driven by examples rather than by abstract con-
cepts. Nevertheless, we have consistently justified and explained every step
taken and every choice made throughout the book. You’ll also discover useful
tips and tricks to make your programming life easier.
