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.

  • Read HTML form data with JSP and Servlets
  • Include additional files in your JSP file for a standard look-and-feel
  • Manage application state with Sessions to track unique user actions
  • Leverage Cookies to personalize a web site for a specific user
  • Build a Multi-Lingual app using Internationlization with JSTL
  • Build an MVC application with JSP and Servlets

Student Reviews Prove This Course's Worth

Those who have reviewed the course have pointed out that the instruction is clear and easy to follow, as well as thorough and highly informative. Other students enjoy the use of relevant examples throughout the course, as these make the content even easier to comprehend.

Many students had also taken other JSP courses in the past, only to find that this JSP course was their favorite. They enjoyed the structure of the content and the high quality audio/video.

Check out all of the great reviews in the review section ... a lot of happy students :-)

Compared to other JSP/Servlet courses

This course is fully up to date and covers the latest JSP 2.3 and Servlet 3.1. Also, all code examples make use of the latest Java 8 version.

Beware of other Udemy JSP/Servlet courses. Most of them are outdated and use old versions of JSP and Servlets. Don’t waste your time or money on learning outdated technology.

Most importantly, this course is project based and you'll build a real JSP/Servlets web application that connects to a database ... all from scratch.

I am a very responsive instructor and I am available to answer your questions and help you work through any problems.

Finally, all source code is provided with the course along with setup instructions.

Quality Material

You will receive a quality course, with solid technical material and excellent audio and video production. This is my fourth course at Udemy.

My first three courses on Udemy were:

  • Eclipse IDE for Beginners
  • Java Database Connection (JDBC)
  • JavaServer Faces (JSF) for Beginners


These courses have received rave 5 star reviews and over 60,000 students have taken the courses. Also, these courses are the most popular courses in their respective categories.

I also have an active YouTube channel where I post regular videos. In the past year, I’ve created over 300 video tutorials (public and private). My YouTube channel has over 2 million views. So I understand what works and what doesn’t work for creating video tutorials.


No Risk – Money-Back Guarantee

Finally, there is no risk. You can preview 25% of the course for free. Once you purchase the course, if for some reason you are not happy with the course, Udemy offers a 30-day money back guarantee.

So you have nothing to lose, sign up for this course and learn how to build JSP/Servlet applications from scratch!
