An introduction to web programming with Java
This chapter introduces you to the terms and concepts
that you need for working with Java servlets and JavaServer
How to develop JavaServer Pages
Once you have your system set up with Java, Tomcat,
and NetBeans, chapter 5 shows how to develop JavaServer
Pages (JSPs). At the end of this introductory chapter,
you'll be ready to learn how to develop servlets (chapter
6), and then, how to combine JSPs and servlets effectively
in web applications (chapter 7).
How to use the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL)
The JSTL provides tags for common tasks that need to
be performed in JSPs. Coupled with Expression Language
(covered in chapter 10), this allows you to remove much
of the Java scripting from your applications, making
your pages easier for web designers to work with and
easier for you to maintain.
