What Is Java Server Pages (JSP)?
JSP (JavaServer Pages) is a popular web application solution for Java. JSP helps developers create dynamically generated HTML web pages on the fly. JSP is similar to PHP, but it uses the powerful Java programming language instead.
Benefits of Taking This JSP/Servlets Course
Knowing JSP and Servlets can get you a job or improve the one you have. It's a skill that will put you more in demand in the modern web development industry, and make your software life easier, that's why it's so popular and backed by Oracle.
This course will help you quickly get up to speed with JSP and Servlets. I will demystify the technology and help you understand the essential concepts to build a real JSP/Servlet web application from scratch.
Build a Real JSP/Servlet Application from Scratch
This course is project based and you will build a fully functioning JSP/Servlet web application from scratch.
We start off with a brief overview of JSP and Servlets. Then I show you how to setup your development for JSP by installing Tomcat and Eclipse. Next, I show you how to connect Eclipse and Tomcat for rapid application development.
We cover the key JSP scripting elements: Expressions, Scriptlets and Declaration. For each scripting element, I show you working code examples along with the appropriate use-case and best practices.
You learn about the built-in objects available in JSP. Code examples demonstrate the most common built-in objects.
Next, we cover how to read HTML form data with JSP. This includes reading form data for text fields, drop-down lists, radio buttons and checkboxes.
Then you learn how to manage application state with Sessions and Cookies. You make use of the built-in session object to keep track of actions for a unique user. You also leverage Cookies to personalize a web site for a specific user.
Finally, the course includes JDBC database integration. You learn how to leverage JDBC queries, inserts, updates and deletes in a JSP/Servlet web application.
At the end of this course, you will have a fully functional JSP/Servlet web application that connects to a database. You can use this application as a starting point for your project.
All of the source code and database scripts are provided.
