This book is potentially promising.Short, concise, inexpensive. Can it be possible?Not really.The author skirts the major issues of getting started, forwarding readers to the 'easy installation instructions' on the Jakarta site, on all matters trivial and not so trivial.The content itself is mediocre at best, written offhand and leaves you reading and re-reading every section to check whether you missed something when there really was very little there to begin with.This book smells of a rush-to-publish and under-editting and under-testing. Steer clear.
This book just wasn't very helpful. Not much depth, sparse, sporadic. Everytime I ran into a JSTL issue/question on my project I ran to this book hoping that maybe this time it would provide answers. It never did. Very disappointing and frustrating. Look somewhere else.
This might be one of the most effective IT book I have ever read. It's short but comprehensive. All four libraries are covered and covered quite well.The first few chapters provide an introduction to JSTL, including the reasons and a few brief examples. The chapter on the EL seemed to be the weakest chapter, but it was detailed enough to get a solid start with using it.Each library has a pretty good sized chapter with coverage of all of the tags and their most common attributes. The code samples covered what you are most likely to do with the tags, although I would have like to see some uncommon uses as well. The chapter on the SQL tags, the most controversial library, included her opinions on why you would use them.Overall, this book provides a quick source of information for learning JSTL. It will also make a great reference to have when you are writing your JSP pages.
