4Good Book
By VersionBest
Before I start my brief review, I would like to say that this is a good book and does present the materials necessary to develop a web application; however it appears to be a condense version of the full book which is missing some crucial information/details. Forgive me if this is not the case. Just a disclaimer so I don't get attack later on by readers who thinks this is a 5 star book.

Thank goodness I have a background in Java Programming, HTML, and CSS otherwise I would be lost in later chapters as the author tends to go off on a tangent from subject to subject skipping in-between steps almost as though it was rushed just so the author can claim it was done in one day and is the primary reason I did not give this book a perfect 5 star. BTW, I did not finish this book in one day, I finished it in two :)

To sum up the guidance from the book, you can expect to see full step by step detail instructions up until a little more than halfway through the book. Then, all in a sudden everything seem rushed. A lot of crucial pertinent details are left out and is no longer step by step. Therefore, in this way, it is not a beginners book if you plan to follow every details from beginning to end. I actually did some Google searches to see if I can find additional information about the missing sections, to which I could not find. So I improvised the missing coding with my own knowledge.

Pros:
1. The book does an outstanding job at guiding you through setting up your development environment.
2. Introduce you to new terms and practices in the Web-Development world.
3. Once you finished the book, you will have the tools and knowledge necessary to develop a basic web application.

Cons:
1. Not thorough. Missing details in later chapters that will force you to find out the answers on your own. Therefore, not a beginners book.
2. Since this is a small book, the screenshots printed on for reference are small and very difficult to see. The printing of the screenshots are often blurry and difficult to make out. You will encounter a few sections where all you have is the screenshot for reference.
3. The coding references changes from chapter to chapter, even when no further code changes was made. For example, code placement and arrangement will show one way on previous chapters, then on later chapters it looks different even when no further code was added or changes made that I could tell.

Would I recommend this book? The answer is YES! It's not a perfect book but it does teaches you valuable basics in web development through the MVC model and gets your feet through the door.

5Solid introduction to web applications!
By Andrew Li
The author has done a great job at introducing the basics of web applications with this book. The book covers basic front-end and back-end development, and also provides solid detail on using databases.

All in all, great book to get your feet wet in the world of web apps.

5I finally found the book I was looking for to ...
By AH
I finally found the book I was looking for to get an understanding on how to develop java web application from the beginning. The professor makes a point that the book is for students or professionals in the web development industry. I hope the professor starts a series of web development books.
