Servlets are Java's answer to CGI and JSP is Java's answer to Active Server
Pages or ColdFusion. Although from a technological perspective they may not
be the most revolutionary Java products ever to hit the scene, from a
practical perspective they are perhaps *the* Java technologies that are most
widely accepted in industry.
So, now that we have JSP, there is no need to bother with those klunky old
servlets, right? Wrong.
JSP is just a thin syntactic veneer on top of servlets, so "real" Java
programmers will just stick with servlets, right? Wrong.
Join us Wed, Nov 15 as Marty Hall gives an introduction to JSP technology.
He'll explain why JSP is an important contribution over servlets alone, why
you still need to know servlets to be an effective JSP developer, how JSP
compares to competing alternatives, what the main JSP features are, where to
get free servlet and JSP engines, how to get started with JSP programming,
and why servlet and JSP developers are the hippest, most in demand and
highest paid developers in the universe.
Marty is an American computer scientist and author who will be in Sydney to
teach a servlet and JSP short course sponsored by the Australian Distributed
Systems Technology Centre (see
Marty is also the author of Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages from Sun
Microsystems Press (see www.coreservlets.com). The book is the single most
popular book on servlets and JSP, and one of the top two bestselling
Java-related books and top ten bestselling computer-related books at
amazon.com and at Borders stores worldwide. Marty spoke on servlets and JSP
at the JavaOne 2000 conference in the US and has recent or upcoming servlet
and JSP courses and seminars in the US, Canada, and the Philippines, in
addition to the one here in Australia.
If the food, comraderie, and interesting talk isn't enough to get you to
come, how about a bribe? Thanks to Sun Microsystems Press and Prentice Hall,
we'll be giving away a copy or two of Marty's book during the evening. Or
how about a threat: anyone who *doesn't* come has to use COBOL for three
Finally, there is still room in Marty's four day servlet and JSP short
course Nov 13-16 at Clifton's in Sydney. For details, see
