I started this book with a very basic understanding of Servlets. A good book increases your knowledge of a subject without boring you to tears. This book does that. The book has many examples with very good explanations of not only the code but why the code was even written. It is easy to read and understand. It covers from setting up the server configuration to wireless and WML. The book's format is well designed starting at the very basics and moving through the more advanced topics. If you want to increase your knowledge (or start) of Servlets, I feel this is the book to read.

Full of insights and practical examples for those who persevere.
Occasionally , the book is incomplete, perhaps with the expectation that the
reader "ought to know" by now. One such example is Chapter 10 "Applet-to-Servlet
Coomunication ", where one is left wondering how to extend "BaseTunnelClient".
More please, Mr Moss !
