JSP and Beyond

a pragmatic primer on building web-based solutions with Java technologies

Foundation Introduction

Now that we have a good handle on the history of application development on the web let us examine what it takes to develop and serve Java Server Pages applications.  One of the biggest challenges in JSP development is the extremely steep learning curve.


This chapter helps us to explore the underpinnings of the applications.  This chapter explains Servlets, the nuts and bolts of application servers, acronyms related to development kits that you will need to know and development tools that will help you to get up and running as quickly as possible for the next chapter Java Server Pages Deconstructed.


I know that you cannot wait, so without further adieu behold the foundation chapter.
