This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Let's all give a big JavaRanch welcome to Jayson Falkner and Kevin Jones, the authors of Servlets and JSP: The J2EE Web Tier. Jayson and Kevin will be here to talk about their new book and answer your questions about servlets and JSPs. We will be giving away copies of their book at the end of the week to four lucky winners. See the book promotion page for rules to win your copy of the book.
Hello, and thanks for the welcome. Here is a little more information about Kevin and myself. I maintain both www.jspbook.com and JSP Insider as well as a blarg over at java.net. I helped with the JSP 2.0 specification, and Kevin helped with both the Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 specification and he works for DevelopMentor. Feel free to ask away, in particular questions about the book, and we'll try to give out good answers. Additionally, if you are interested in learning more about Servlets and JavaServer Pages; the J2EE Web Tier, head on over to the book support site to find sample chapters, faq, errata, code, and reader feedback.
