What about Servlet Filters?

I saw the TOC of your book at http://coreservlets.com. I was surprised to see that there was no mentioning of Servlet filters! I feel that it is the the most ignored feature, though they are quite efficient for many tasks.
Are you planning to cover filters in the second volume?

Yes. The book came to somewhere around 2000 pages, and it was simply not possible to keep it in a single volume or to trim it down without being so brief on some topics as to be useless. So, I tried to put technologies that virtually every project uses in Volume I, and other important but less-widely-used technologies in Volume II. Empirically, people just do not use filters as much as the things covered in Volume I.
That being said, I like filters a lot. And they are covered in my existing "More Servlets and JSP" book (see
http://www.moreservlets.com/). In fact, that entire chapter is freely available online in PDF. Read it at

Cheers-

Thanks Marty.
And what about subjects like Performance tuning (with respect to Servlets & JSP), communication between Servlets and other technologies (like applets) etc?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
