What's next after servlets?

I personally disagree with Bear's views on JSF - it's used a great deal, standardized and has quite a few large companies backing it. It's also well-designed, and it's constantly improving and evolving into something better than it used to be. Especially with Seam's support for it, I like where it's going.

Still, one shouldn't discredit knowledge of Servlets - there are quite a few areas in which they overlap, you can't use JSF everywhere so you do need a back-up, and knowledge of servlets will definitely benefit your JSF development as well.

I did not say that no one uses them. I write a new one each week. But they are no longer new or sexy. They are more like the String class. Useful, and used all the time, but no one will get a job just because they put the magic keyword "servlets" on their resume.


There's probably about 9,999,999,999 lines of servlet code in production that someone has to maintain. I know maintaining OPC (other people's code) is not as cool as doing new design and development but if you really want a programming job, maintaing servlets just might get your foot in the door. After that, it's about learning the business and meeting the customer's needs.

List of technologies you can try

DHTMLX - you need to add the javascripts (licenced) & use it to create interactive grids on the web pages.
JQUERY - can be used to handle many functionalities (sorting, validation.. etc)
JSF/RICHFACES - To create rich web application / UIs
Spring MVC - (part of spring framework) web layer functionalities
Struts MVC - web layer functionalities
Hibernate/iBatis - Object relational mapping S/Ws
JPA - Java persistence API (annotation based)
Spring - AOP : aspect oriented programming
Spring - Event Listeners: advanced
Spring Web services - Web service creation & consumption.

I believe, in addition to Servlets, there will be Asynchronous Servlets and its associated fascinating user-stories.

You sir, are evil. Will your asynchronous servlets return the answer before getting the GET/POST?

Of course, they can't work over HTTP, so you will need a new protocol for the web :-)

also you can pursue Oracle certification of Servlets and JSP

Core+MVC is different then JSP and Servlets???

I mean MVC is being reffered to Model View Controller , right??

Spring Core is the component that provides bean management including dependency injection.

Spring MVC is the web framework.
