The JHipster Mini-Book

The things you need to do to set up a new software project can be daunting. First, you have to select the back-end framework to create your API, choose your database, set up security, and choose your build tool. Then you have to choose the tools to create your front end: select a UI framework, configure a build tool, set up Sass processing, configure your browser to auto-refresh when you make changes, and configure the client and server so they work in unison. If you're building a new application using Spring Boot and Angular, you can save days by using JHipster. JHipster generates a complete and modern web app, unifying: - A high-performance and robust Java stack on the server side with Spring Boot - A sleek, modern, mobile-first front-end with Angular and Bootstrap - A robust microservice architecture with the JHipster Registry, Netflix OSS, the ELK stack, and Docker - A powerful workflow to build your application with Yeoman, Webpack, and Maven/Gradle

The Spring Primer

The Spring Primer is the most complete book on the Spring Framework. It is for users who are familiar with Java development but have never used Spring. As you read this title, you will learn how Spring reduces the amount of code you have to write and why it receives so much attention and respect from the Java community. This book is very code-intensive and contains many examples for developing applications with Spring. You'll use Test-Driven Development to rapidly develop and test a simple CRUD application. All of the code in this book is available on SourceBeat's web site. In addition, an open-source project called Equinox is available as part of this book to help users get started quickly and easily with Spring.

Pro JSP, Third Edition

Simpler, faster, easier dynamic website development based on new additions to an established and proven technologythat's what JavaServer Pages (JSP) 2.0 is all about. Pro JSP, Third Edition is the most comprehensive guide and reference to JSP 2.0 yet. It equips you with the tools, techniques, and understanding you need to develop web applications with JSP and Java servlets.

The features of the JSP 2.0 and Servlet 2.4 specifications make developing web applications easier than ever before. JSP Expression Language (EL) provides a simple language for creating JSP pages and tags. In addition, by also using the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL), you'll never have to use a Java scriptlet or write spaghetti code again.

Beyond covering the JSP and Servlet APIs, this book shows you how to choose and implement the best persistence option for your web applications; how to secure your web sites against malicious attack and accidental misuse; how to improve the performance and scalability of your JSP pages; and how to architect and design your applications to be reliable, stable, and maintainable through the use of design patterns and best practices.

Finally, no JSP book would be complete today without looking at the role that open source projects such as Ant, Struts, XDoclet, JUnit, and Cactus can play in making your web development even easier.
