In fact, I feel the book may not focus on any particular model, as only JSPs cannot provide the MVC framework. It needs the help of Servlets. And thus, I feel the book is talking about various issues araise in JSPs, like the basic stuffs (like scriptlets, jsp actions) and advanved stuffs (like custom tags, EL, JSTL). Nick.
Yeah, Nick, at first when I read the sample chapter of the book, it seems that the book does not involve in dealing with any models... I also think that other chapters is discussing the way as the sample chapter-11... But by seeing the TOC of the book, I found out that it's not that possible that the book won't involve in dealing with the models... "Part III. JSP in J2EE and JSP Component Development" is related to the models and J2EE stuff... So we are coming up with the same question... I mean me and ronald ali... :roll: I mean starting from chapter-18 of the book, the book has to deal with models for sure... Hope Mr.Bergsten sees this thread or my thread and will reply soon...

As a general JSP book it SHOULD not concentrate on any one framework or programming model apart from mentioning the strengths and weaknesses of both models. That said, most JSP books will naturally shift in the later parts towards working ever more in a Type2 architecture (which is effectively MVC) albeit a limited one in order to prevent readers from getting bogged down in trying to understand framework code rather than the JSPs themselves.
