Source Code and Examples for the book. (53kb) -- 9020code.zip
The Java Server Pages (JSP) technology allows web developers and designers to rapidly develop and easily maintain information-rich, dynamic web pages that leverage existing business systems. It does this by allowing developers to directly embed preexisting Java code and JavaBeans into HTML pages. JSP is also a key component in the Java 2 Enterprise Edition, Sun's highly scalable architecture for enterprise applications. The JSP specification is the product of industry-wide collaboration with industry leaders in the enterprise software and tools markets, led by Sun Microsystems and including Adobe, BEA, Bluestone, IBM, Sybase, Netscape, Oracle, Symantec and many others. The JSP specification is freely available to the development community, with the goal that every web server and application server will support the JSP interface.

Concise, but no coverage of customizable tags,
This review is from: Pure JSP: Java Server Pages (Paperback)Pros:
* Not a very long book, so it cuts thru a lot of the excess verbiage and over-explanation you find in books on similar topics.
* If you are an experienced Java programmer and already are a good architect, this is a quick route into learning JSP.
* Omits a major JSP topic: customizable tags. This is the equivalent of an HTML book lacking a section on frames.
* Unclear explanation of options on the <jsp:usebean> tag
* Examples rely too heavily on large scriptlets and major database code in the JSPs, against the advice of most Java architects.
* It's a short book, which is a relief from the 1000-page tomes. Yes, this really is all there is to JSP - almost. Look elsewhere for custom tags and architectural advice.

clear and concise tutorial for JSPs,
This review is from: Pure JSP: Java Server Pages (Paperback)If you?ve got about an hour a day for a week or two, pick up this book and work through it. The chapters and very well laid out and provide a focused study for each of the topics covered. Of course you must be pretty familiar with Java already but JSP and the Servlet API are introduced from the ground up and after working through the first two sections you can safely say, ?I know all about JSP development.? He keeps the best chapter off towards the end with JSP Communication with Servlets. Those 10 pages are worth the price of the book alone. Just try finding this in another book. You can, but you?ll pay twice as much and won?t get any more information than is presented here. It?s also worth mentioning that the book itself is the perfect size for traveling, unlike so many of the ?definitive? guide books which take up half the space in your suitcase. It will be accompanying me to my project sites from now on. One word of caution, the chapter on XML and JSPs require... Read more

This book rocks!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Pure JSP: Java Server Pages (Paperback)Great examples, quick and too the point explanations make this a very good book to hit the ground running learning JSP.
If you are a professional developer like me, and you don't want to deal with a lot of lengthly overwritten explanations and books written by twenty different people (i.e., Wrox publications) this is the book to get. Goodwill knows his stuff when it comes to Java and he is able to convey it to the reader in an understandable way.
Also, check out "JavaServer Pages Application Development" by Ben Forta another very good JSP book.
