New Riders, July, 2001.
Trade Paperback, 746 pages.
This book for software developers focuses on building a specific application using XML, XSLT, Java and JSP. The book contains a case study which shows how the book's authors developed a chat application using several web technologies. Each step of the development is covered in detail, and the complete source code for the chat application is provided. The tools used in the book can be found free online and are also included in the companion CD-ROM. The book provides a great look at how a specific set of problems are solved by programmers, which can be of help to web developers that find themselves in a similar situation. The book would be very useful for a developer looking to create a chat environment online using these technologies. However, for beginners and experts looking for comprehensive instruction on XML, XSLT, Java and JSP, the material is too focused on a developing a specific application to be of value.
XML, XSLT, Java and JSP is available for purchase on Amazon.com
