The goal of this book is to wake up the web developer sleeping in you. A prerequisite is a basic understanding of static HTML. No programming experience is required though, yet advised. The book starts from scratch. About a third of it spends time introducing Java (language basics, OO, utility classes, exception handling, etc) and SQL. The book also focuses on how to best structure a web application and how the latter's components (JSP, Servlets and beans) work and collaborate behind the scenes.
A good part is dedicated to showing how to access files, query databases and send electronic mails from web applications. One chapter introduces, in detail, Apache's Struts framework. Finally, a complete web application is designed and implemented from scratch using Struts and all techniques presented in the book.
Basically, the book is well-organized and provides lots of well-commented code examples.
