What Is a Java Server Page (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.

What Is a Servlet?

A servlet is a server-side Java class for processing web requests. The industry best-practice is to use Servlets and JSPs together for an MVC application. MVC is covered in this course.

Benefits of Taking This 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 JSP and Servlets to help you understand the essential concepts to build a real JSP web application from scratch.

Build a JSP-Servlets 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 and Servlets 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 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, you pull it all together and build a real-world database project. The project makes use of popular Java technologies such as JSP, Servlets, JDBC and Tomcat.

Everything connects to a MySQL database with all CRUD features: SQL query, insert, update and delete. I cover all of the steps to set up your development environment and cover how to code each section of the project. You also get links to download the complete source code.

At the end, you will have a fully complete Java Database project.

private). My YouTube channel has over 1 million views. So I understand

what works and what doesn’t work for creating video tutorials.
