Looking for some good material to revise/learn JSP technology?
Having an impression that each book is similar to the previous one?
Want to pass SCWCD exam?
When you answered ‘yes’ at least twice, I think that you shall definitely read Head First SCWCD by Bryan Basham, Bert Bates and Kathie Sierra.
The most important difference between this book and all the rest is the way how authors describe technical issues. Don’t consider them easy – they are really tricky sometimes.
It is a very funny book although the topic is not so easy. It’s marvelous that authors describe the problems not too detailed. After the introduction they redirect to specification. In comparison to other books I must say that reading something about existence of specification is rare in practice. Here the redirection is very brief – includes chapter numbers and document name.
Cons? I know that JSF is not on the list of SCWCD but I missed it. EL & JSTL is quite hard to understand relying on this book only.
Anyway, this is a very good position to start working on JSP.
I think that the purpose of writing this book is that the reader will be trying to pass SCWD exam. Even you don’t want to pass a certification, I do strongly recommend it to you.
It’s also worth emphasizing that javaranch.com is a great addition to this book. People discuss many things also that ones included in this book. When there is a lot of confusion, you can rely on Bryan or Bert’s answers and clarification.
