Subject RE: Book recommendation
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2002 21:02:44 GMT

I'm a big fan of the two O'Reilly books (and actually, all O'Reilly books,
it's been years since I bought a tech book from another publisher).

Java Servlet Programming, ISBN 0596000405, by Jason Hunter and William
Crawford.  Jason Hunter is one of tomcat's contributors and is a member of
the group responsible for Servlet API development.  Covers version 2.3 of
the API.

JavaServer Pages, ISBN 156592746X, by Hans Bergsten, a member of the Apache
Jakarta Project Management Committee.

Both cover enough of tomcat-specific issues for my needs, though neither
spends too much time on just tomcat.

I would highly recommend 'More Servlets and Java Server Pages' by Marty
Hall, it covers Tomcat 4 and the new Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2 specs.

The Professional Java Server Programming is good too.

The James Goodwill book is much too basic, you could learn as much by
reading the Tomcat docs on the Tomcat web site.

Hope that helps,

Subject: Book recommendation

Any recommendation for a good book that covers Tomcat and
other related open source technologies? More from an application
developers point of view as to how various components fit
together rather than sysadmin details or exhaustive details
about any one particular thing (say JBoss, Servlet etc).

Some books that came up on Internet search were...

1) MySQL and JSP Web Applications: Data-Driven Programming
        Using Tomcat and MySQL By James Turner

2) Apache Jakarta-Tomcat by James Goodwill

3) JSP, Servlets, and Mysql by Dave Harms

4) Professional Java Server Programming (many authors)

Any other ones out there and which one would you recommend?
