Learn every aspect to build web applications from scratch
This book is primarily intended for beginners who wants to learn various aspects of software engineering and building web applications using Java programming language.
The objective of this book is to teach building modern day business web applications using java and other related technologies. This book teaches everything in details and in simpler way about building web applications with medium to high level of complexity. This book also covers various software engineering concepts that are required for building software solutions.
The book takes you through each and every step of building a web application from scratch. The objective is to teach the reader every single aspect of software engineering required for building web applications from inception till deployment and support. In order to achieve the objective, a real life business requirement is taken and the sample project is built step by step from requirements gathering till deployment and support.
The book includes building a light weight MVC based Java framework and building the sample web application using it. During the course architecture, SDLC, UML, security, ajax, various patterns, best practices and other related topics are explained.
The best way to learn anything is to get the hands dirty. When a developer starts building any software solution, he/she gets lots of doubts and questions while actually doing it. When the reader architects, designs and does the coding hands on, the reader learns every aspect practically. When the reader builds the working application step by step, the confidence of the reader as a developer is boosted. « less
Understanding Website Creation
This comprehensive textbook introduces readers to the three-tiered, Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture by using Hibernate, JSPs, and Java Servlets. These three technologies all use Java, so that a student with a background in programming will be able to master them with ease, with the end result more » of being able to create web applications that use MVC, validate user input and save data to a database. Features: presents the many topics of web development in small steps, in an accessible, easy-to-follow style; uses powerful technologies that are freely available on the web to speed up web development, such as JSP, JavaBeans, annotations, JSTL, Java 1.5, Hibernate and Tomcat; discusses HTML, HTML Forms, Cascading Style Sheets and XML; introduces core technologies from the outset, such as the MVC architecture; contains questions and exercises at the end of each chapter, detailed illustrations, chapter summaries, and a glossary; includes examples for accessing common web services. « less
This second edition starts by showing how to install and use Tomcat as a web server and NetBeans as an IDE. Then, it teaches how and when to use JavaServer Pages and Java servlets to build well-structured web applications that implement the MVC pattern. Next, it shows how to use sessions, cookies, JavaBeans, more » Expression Language (EL), the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL), and custom tags. Then, it shows how to use JDBC and connection pooling to work with a MySQL database. Finally, it shows how to use JavaMail, SSL/TLS, authentication, listeners, and filters. These are the skills that you need to build professional Java web applications. A great read for any Java developer. « less
* JSP is one of the core technologies for server-side Java applications and the 2.0 release, which this book covers in detail, makes JSP an even more powerful tool
* Walks Java programmers and Web developers through JSP fundamentals, including JSP syntax and directives, JSP Expression Language, JSP more » Tag libraries, JSTL, and techniques for testing and debugging
* Shows how to use JSP in real-world Web applications along with open source frameworks such as Struts, WebWork, and Turbine, software design methodologies, and developer tools like Ant, jUnit, and CVS, as well as popular IDEs (integrated development environmnents)
* Each chapter has an exercise section with solutions on the companion Web site « less
Increasingly, Java developers are recognizing the value of patterns in helping to build more robust, effective software systems -- but most books on patterns are either generic or focused on other languages. Now, the creators of Sun's own course on Java patterns have written the definitive book for working more » developers. Replete with working code, this book offers practical help with all types of patterns, in every facet of development -- from individual classes to overall system architecture. First, the authors introduce the fundamentals of patterns, presenting a high-level overview of how they can be used most effectively in Java development, and introducing each key type of pattern: creational, behavioral, and structural. Next, they present specific techniques for using patterns with core Java APIs (including security, event, JavaBeans, and Swing APIs); and in advanced distributed development with JDBC, RMI, CORBA, JNDI, and JavaSpaces. The book concludes with detailed coverage of pattern use in enterprise systems built with servlets, JSP, and other J2EE infrastructure technologies. « less
JDBC, JNDI, and JAXP
This hands-on guide shows Java developers how to access data with the new 3.0 Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API, use LDAP-enabled directory services with Java Network Directory Services (JNDI), and manipulate XML data using Java APIs for XML Processing (JAXP).
Pick up this book to acquire the more » skills needed to effectively create Java applications that can access a variety of data sources. Learn the basics of JDBC 3.0 and how it relates to the Java programming language as a whole. Then from this base, build your knowledge by reading about common advanced uses such as connection pooling, JSP implementations, and Enterprise JavaBeans. You will also gain an awareness of several object oriented design patterns for implementing JDBC solutions, and gain a knowledge of JNDI and how to use it to store and retrieve data using LDAP. « less
Since its inception in 1999, Enterprise Java has taken the Java programming community by storm--developers have realized its potential for building distributed applications. Today, JavaServer Pages (JSP) continues to harmonize how web designers and programmers create dynamicweb sites. JSP builds on the more » popular Java servlet technology and makes it easier to develop dynamic web applications--even if you're not a hard-core programmer.JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition is completely revised and updated to cover the substantial changes in the 1.2 version of the JSP specification, and also includes detailed coverage of the new JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL)--an eagerly anticipated specification of a set of JSP elements for the tasks needed in most JSP applications. This book starts off by illustrating how JSP capitalizes on the power of Java servlets to create effective, portable web applications. It shows how to get started using the Apache Tomcat server, and provides detailed coverage of JSP syntax and features, error handling and debugging, authentication and personalization, and how to use JSTL for database access, XML processing, and internationalization.JavaServer Pages recognizes the different needs of the two groups of professionals who want to learn JSP: page authors interested in using JSP elements in web pages, and programmers concerned with learning the JSP API and using JSP effectively in an enterprise application. If you're in the latter group, this book also teaches you such advanced topics as integrating servlets and JavaBeans with JSP, using the popular Apache Struts MVC framework to illustrate how it's done. Finally, the author presents how to develop custom tag libraries, using realistic examples that you can use as a springboard for your own JSP libraries.
"This is a complete, comprehensive, and most of all, practical book. The author excels at sharing his vast expertise so web developers can make the most out of JavaServer Pages and related web technologies."--Pierre Delisle, JSP Standard Tag Library Specification Lead « less
