Web Applications with Java/JSP
Adding Java to your repertoire for building Web applications gives you access to the built-in services guaranteed by the Servlet Specification as well as a plethora of high-quality third-party libraries. Servlet containers provide many services useful to your Web applications through simple configuration and/or APIs. Java Server Pages can be used to build complex Web pages quickly while avoiding business logic. The Servlets you write to implement your business logic have full access to many APIs for just about anything you can think of. The power of Java Web applications and the stability and scalability of Linux can be combined into a platform on which many high-quality on-line services are built, including mine. I hope I've given you a taste of how easy it is to create a robust and useful Java Web application using the tools provided by the Java Servlet Specification, and that you consider using Java for your next Web application.

Pick up any e-commerce web or mobile app today, and you’ll be holding a mashup of interconnected applications and services from a variety of different providers. For instance, when you connect to Amazon’s e-commerce app, cookies, tags and pixels that are monitored by solutions like Exact Target, BazaarVoice, Bing, Shopzilla, Liveramp and Google Tag Manager track every action you take. You’re presented with special offers and coupons based on your viewing and buying patterns. If you find something you want for your birthday, a third party manages your wish list, which you can share through multiple social- media outlets or email to a friend. When you select something to buy, you find yourself presented with similar items as kind suggestions. And when you finally check out, you’re offered the ability to pay with promo codes, gifts cards, PayPal or a variety of credit cards.Get the Guide
