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.
