Java Server and Servlets is an indispensable resource for developers and Java programmers who are responsible for constructing Web-based server-side applications for small to medium-sized companies. It introduces all the relevant technologies and explains how to use them, and then goes on to describe the design principles behind building your own Web server and how to build your own applications. The authors have created their SMI (Servlet Method Invocation), an extension based on the servlet API, and provide their own software, the servlet engine Jo!. In addition to providing an illustrated example of how to build a web server, the book also covers a framework, WebApp, for the developer who, having understood the principles laid out, can use it as a basis for creating and developing better applications.
