Subject RE: Suggestiosn for ANT-Java programming book
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2004 20:08:57 GMT
Hi Jim,

  Thanks for the suggestion.  The table of contents talks about building
web services, bit I don't see a chapter that specifically addresses
building servlets or JSPs.  Do you remember if that's in there?  Thanks.

I've got that book;  it's like a good sampler platter, but you need the
entree. It sounds like for your needs, _Java Development with Ant_ would
be a better fit.

Available as an eBook, as well, for yesterday's needs.

I leveraged this book into precisely what you're talking about, and my
webapp had very peculiar needs.

As to the *what* the specifics of specific app servers or web servers
and how they impact your project, you'll probably have to find them
elsewhere.  (Tomcat does get plenty of coverage in the book).  Whatever
the specifics are, though, you'll probably learn what you need to learn
about Ant to handle it.
