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.
I am so use to doing things the MS way it is sometimes difficult to translate to the Java way. Maybe someone has this answer. In .Net and prior we have things call controls which can be referenced through the objects that contain them. They respond to events and handle their own display. It appears that JSP/Java has similar features such as Servlets, Custom Tags, and objects. I am looking for a good example of how someone would implement say a Tab Strip which can respond to events and can be referenced from the servlet for switching tabs during the business logic portion of the action. Currently my implementation of the Tab Strip is a custom tag which uses session.setAttribute to maintain its state. I believe this is good but I want proof! Thanks in advance
