Hello,

Could someone please give me a name of the book that is intended for intermidiate to expert level. I was think of buying head first JSP and servlets but am not sure if it's a beginner or advanced?. Ideal book should have servlets, JSP, security,some description of web.xml and nice to have: log4j and ant. I really appreciate you taking your time out to help me.

Regards,
Mala

HF Servlets and JSP covers tons of great stuff including the deployment descriptor, jsp and security. I am an experienced developer new to Servlets and have found this book a great resource. The concepts are well laid out. (Props to Kathy, Bryan and Bert).

log4j and ant are not covered. If you google for ant you will find some pretty detailed stuff. I picked up enough ant to build an app for multi-platforms in about 2 hours... Log4j has some pretty good examples...

Thanks for your reply Colin. I was under the impression that Head first Servlets and JSP was based more on SCWCD exam. So, you're saying though it could be a certification book but it's also an intermediate to advanced technology book ..right??.

I can't think of a better way to learn a technology than through a certification book, especially if it is a Head First book.

I also liked the SCWCD study guide by Hanumant Deshmukh. I love the head first jsp/servlets book. Even if you are experienced, It does make your concepts stronger...

"Core Java Servlets and Java Server Pages" by Marty Hall is very good. I also think Pro JSP (can't remember the authors offhand, but the publisher is Apress!) is excellent and does have some coverage of servlets, but it really is a JSP book. I do have to agree with others here that the best place to start is probably Head First Java Servlets.

Hi Mala,
I read some books concerning Servlets and JSPs. The book that helped me most to really understand this topic is "Head First Servlets & JSP". It is actually great fun to read this book. Just have a look at the customers reviews on Amazon.com and convince yourself.
