======================================= PRESS RELEASE -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ======================================= Manning Publications announces the release of: JSP Tag Libraries By Gal Shachor, Adam Chace, Magnus Rydin How to develop powerful custom JSP tags A V A I L A B L E J U N E 2 0 0 1 Greenwich, Connecticut -- The word in the web development community is that tags are the next big thing for JSP. With its leading book, Web Development with JavaServer Pages, going into a second edition this October, Manning is now reinforcing its leading position in the JSP space. A sneak preview of the 656 page JSP Tag Libraries debuted at JavaOne 2001 in San Francisco, California this week. JavaServer Pages programmers who are looking to give their page developers a powerful yet simple syntax for building pages, will want them to use JSP tags. JSP Tag Libraries shows how to develop custom tag libraries that can separate presentation from implementation, expose functionality in robust and reusable packages, provide easy access to J2EE services, and ultimately avoid the use of scriptlets (with which a page developer can inadvertently cause errors or even shut down an entire system). The book also shows how tag libraries can clarify the flow of events in a page, making it easy to follow what's happening--and to find out what's not (i.e., to debug). It covers two full-scale use cases showing the effectiveness of tags in the context of e-commerce and of WAP applications. Because tags help systematize reuse and let non-programmers access powerful system features, tag libraries are expected to have a huge impact on the way people develop JSPs. The book includes tags to perform iterations, access databases, access EJBs, use email systems, work with JavaBeans and do many other things. This book covers all aspects of JSP Tag development for scriptlet-free generation of online content. It focuses on reusable component-centric design via JavaBeans and custom tags to separate presentation from implementation. For a closer look at JSP Tag Libraries, Manning offers components of the book online: the table of contents, two sample chapters, the index and source code can be viewed at the book's web page http://www.manning.com/shachor. The publisher sponsors an Author Online forum where readers can pose questions to the authors and discuss with them topics related to their books. Found at the book's web page, Author Online is open to all visitors, including those who do not own the book. JSP Tag Libraries is also sold as an ebook in PDF format. The ebook edition contains the complete text and illustrations of the printed edition, plus a linked index and bookmarks to every entry in the table of contents. It is available from the publisher's website and is sold at a considerable saving off the printed edition.
