    Servlets Links and References

    The list is divided into five sections:
    General Documentation
    Official home site for servlets
    Whitepapers, downloads, and other documentation.

    Home page for Apache's Jakarta Project (New!)
    The open source reference implementation for servlets and JSPs!

    Old official home site for servlets
    Now it concentrates more on how servlets work in the Java Web Server.

    Official API documentation for the Servlet API 2.0
    Servlet classes are in the javax.servlet and javax.servlet.http packages.

    Official API documentation for the old Servlet API 1.0
    Marvel at how simple it was. All the sun.* packages were part of the proposed JavaServer Toolkit.

    Official JavaServer Pages (JSP) home
    JSP 1.0 went final June 1999, JSP 1.1 went final December 1999.

    Sun's comparison between JSP and ASP (New!)
    A compelling argument for JSP.

    The Web JSP Book from The Esperanto Group (New!)
    An "open source" style book effort.

    Copy of the early JSP 0.92 specification (New!)
    For archival purposes only -- JSP 1.0 is far different.

    Copy of the even earlier JSP 0.91 specification (New!)
    For archival purposes only -- JSP 1.0 is far different.

    The Complete CLASSPATH Guide for Servlets by Gene McKenna
    Despite the name, it only covers the Java Web Server and JRun.

    Sun's list of external servlet resources
    Still pretty sparse.

    FAQs FAQ (New!)
    A FAQ for run by the O'Reilly Network! Contains answers to several com.oreilly.servlet questions.

    Servlet FAQ from jGuru (Updated!)
    Fair number of questions. Most of the answers are in the book Java Servlet Programming, so if you read the book you can use this FAQ as a final exam. jGuru is a new portal from the MageLang Institute. The PurpleTech FAQ has been merged with this FAQ.

    JSP FAQ from jGuru (Updated!)
    Uses JSP to generate the pages. It's shocking how many answers need to refer to the Servlet API. That's not a good sign for JSP being "easy to use for the non-programmer".

    Servlet FAQ from The Esperanto Group (New!)
    Darn good coverage.

    Servlet FAQ from Sun
    Just six questions.

    Servlet FAQ from New Atlanta
    Also fairly short.

    Discussion Forums
    The official servlet mailing list "servlet-interest"
    Almost three thousand servlet enthusiasts subscribe. Useful for general servlet discussion. As always, try not to ask questions whose answers are easily found on your own (like by reading a book!).

    The official Java Web Server mailing list "jserv-interest"
    This was the official servlet mailing list until August 1998, when "servlet-interest" was created. Well over a thousand people subscribe.

    Jakarta Project mailing lists, for the Tomcat server (New!)
    Several different mailing lists are available, covering general discussion to developer check-ins. There's an archive for tomcat-dev.

    Servlet and server-side Java discussion forum hosted by
    Web-based forum.

    JRun servlet engine discussion forum
    Focuses on servlet development issues related to JRun.
    Web-based discussion group on servlet issues.

    Newsgroup livesoftware.jrun
    Actual newsgroup discussing LiveSoftware's JRun servlet engine plug-in.

    Servlet discussion forum hosted by
    Quiet enough you can hear a pin drop.

    Servlet Sites
    Mining Co. Servlet Page
    An introduction is available at

    An online magazine dedicated to servlets.
    A site providing open source servlets. Some of the "upcoming" servlets (guestbook, ad server, poll system, code highlighter) look interesting. They're giving away free copies of "Java Servlet Programming" each month, so you know they're a good site.

    Java Skyline (New!)
    A very busy site with lots of server-side Java resources.

    Servlets Taverne (New!)
    You have to love a site with "Taverne" in the name. Contains news and links. Check out their choice for best servlet book.

    Java Bookmark, Servlets Section (New!)
    A set of bookmarks for servlets, most of which are also listed here.

    Another list of servlet related articles.'s list of JSP links
    Includes copies of the old 0.91 and 0.92 JSP specifications

    Orion Tag Extensions tutorial by Magnus Rydin (New!)
    Gets you started writing JSP tag extensions (note custom tags don't have to be packaged in a .jar file as they claim).

    Official servlet tutorial by Cynthia Bloch
    Covers API 2.0 and 2.1.

    Server-Side Web Applications using Servlets and JSP 1.0: A Tutorial (New!)
