Web Development with Java
I have been teaching web development for ten years. I started with Perl. I can still remember the behemoth programs that contained all the logic and HTML. I remember using a text editor to write the program. Debugging consisted of a lot of print statements. It was a fun time, full of exploration, but I do not miss them. Five years ago, I made the move to Java and Java servlets. Life became much simpler with the use of NetBeans. It has been a critical component in developing Web applications using Java. Debugging a web application in NetBeans is just as easy as debugging any Java application. This book is meant for students who have a solid background in programming, but who do not have any database training. Until two years ago, my students used a glori? ed HashMap to save data. Then a former student gave me the word: Hibernate. For anyone with a p- gramming background in Java, using Hibernate to save data to a re- tional database is a simple task. I have always been a proponent of automating the common tasks that Web applications perform. There are many packages that can s- plify the job of a Web developer: Log4j, BeanUtils and Hibernate. I have created additional classes that can automate additional tasks.
Focuses on using existing tools that are freely available on the web to speed up web development - A student with a good background in programming will be able to develop a complete web site that accesses a databaseUses Hibernate as the primary tool to speed web development, as well as JSPUses the model-view-controller (mvc) approach for web development; also known as a three-tiered model
