I made web programming with C# ago 8 years ago.
I read reviews on Amazon about  Murach-Java-Servlets-JSP-Edition and don't seem encouraging.

Thank you again

IMHO 30 customer reviews 4.3 out of 5 stars is good enough to believe, It is worth reading.

A book based on the (nowadays obsolete) JSP technology is certainly not a good choice to read in 2016!
In 2016 you should go for JSF (and JPA), so better read Building Back-End Web Apps with Java, JPA and JSF.

I don't think JSPs aren't obsolete if used with Servlets or another MVC technology. Doing something with *just* a JSP, I'd agree.

JSF certainly isn't the only game in town.

JSP is as obsolete as Flash. They are still used, but only in projects/products made in the past. In a new project, you wouldn't use Flash anymore, but rather equivalent HTML5 technologies. The same holds for JSP versus JSF+Facelets.

Th book of Murach is obsolete in my opinion.
This book presents the general principles about web programming: CSS, HTML, how to store a password in database and others.

JDBC used in the examples of this book is 3.0 not 4.0.

I think that there is JDBC 4.0 in 2014, the year when the book is written.

Plus there is an example that write information to database and don't explain why the code is written in the method doGet and the method doGet is called in doPost method.

I will try JSF.

I observed a chapter about JSF but it is very basic.
