hi all javaranchers, i am kumar. I want to learn JSP from the starting. I am comfortable with core java. pl. guide me and suggest me how can i learn and do programming in JSp. suggest me some good books on JSP also.
First, download tomcat and install it on your machine. Second, get a book, both "Web Development with JSP" by Manning or "JavaServer Pages" by Oreilly are highly recommended. Third, start writing codes, lots of it.
I really recommend thorough study of servlets since JSP is totally based on the servlet API. If you jump straight into JSP you will probably find it confusing. As Adrian suggests, download Tomcat - even if you use another servlet engine, Tomcat has the JAVADOCS for the servlet and JSP classes. For reference, download the Servlet API and JSP API PDF format documents from java.sun.com There are many good web sites - for instance the taglib tutorial at www.orionserver.com Bill
