Hi Andrew,
How does your book score over the other scores of books available on stores?
I am not aiming at cornering you but only to get convinced that I make a fair deal in buying your
book.
It would be quite helpful if u could outline the various helpful stuff that you had included in your book which can really add some info to enthusiastic JSP programmers.
Regards,
John

And if I need to participate the drawing of winning your book as prize, what do I need to do man?
(I've been in mailing list and sent mails for long time about the drawing without knowing how to get the prize. In the mail, it's written that I have to participate the forum assigned. I'm sure I did. But ??? As a newbie in Java world, I need a great guide book to try and learn more about it. JSP is one of my Java interest. So please let me know how to)
Regards,
Ruttario

This is a very good question. When I decided to write this book, I knew that I would have to differentiate it somehow from the many other JSP books already on the shelves.
I guess the best answer to this question is that my book is not intended to be a JSP book, but rather a book about how to design and build a good application architecture using both JSP and servlet technology. I cover the basics up front to provide some background on the technology, but the real value in the book comes when I discuss several design patterns for building a presentation framework.
In addition to basic JSP, design patterns, and frameworks, I also cover things like automated build procedures (using Ant), testing (JUnit, JMeter), and CVS integration. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with a complete toolset for building and maintaining a solid application framework using JSP and servlet technology.
Thanks for the question.
Andrew

Hi Andrew,
The book seems quite interesting and I guess the book would benefit all JSP programmers who would like to incorporate the best architectures and patterns while designing their applications.
Thanks for ur info.
Cheers,
John
