This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hey, Ranchers - I'm new to J2EE. I have about three months to get familiar with the technology enough to take over maintenance of Web programs for a state agency. At the risk of sounding too much like a beginner, would anybody share with me where Servlets are more or less advantageous than JSP? Or do they work together? It seems to me that Servlets offload processing from the client, and that JSP delivers the data for the client to process/display. Am I getting warm? Thanks!
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for one day. Teach a man to fish, he'll drink all your beer.
Cheers, Jeff (SCJP 1.4, SCJD in progress, if you can call that progress...)
No you're not getting warm... A JSP is a servlet that gets compiled. You might start with Marty Hall's book. I think you can download or read online the old version for free. Or the J2EE tutorial will get up to speed. HTH
