Tomcat JSP  and servlet Tutorial sections:

  1. Introduction to Tomat Server
    Apache Tomcat server is one of the most popular open source web server that implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications from Sun Microsystem to provide the platform to run Java code on a web server provided by Apache Software Foundation. 
  2. Downloading and Installing Tomcat
    In this section we will show the process of downloading and installing Tomcat 6 on your computer system. The steps of downloading and Installing  is easy and you can learn the process very fast. First of all learn the process of downloading tomcat.
  3. Creating Web application on tomcat server
    In this section we will show you how to create first web application using Servlet on the tomcat server. We first make a class named as HelloWorld that extends the abstract HttpServlet class.
  4. Introduction to JSP
    A JSP page is a web page that contains Java code along within the HTML tags. JSP application is used for developing dynamic web sites. JSP application is server side scripting language. JSP is mostly used for developing user interface for web applications. 
  5. Writing First Hello World application in JSP
    JSP simply application that work with Java inside HTML pages. Now we can take any existing HTML page and we change its extension to "hello.jsp" instead of "hello.html".
  6. Write date servlet and test on tomcat 
     In this servlet program going to show how display a current date and current time on client browser. It is very easy to display current date with help of servlet program that display on our browser  with help of  Date class of the java.util package. 
  7. Develop user registration form
    In this example we are going to work with a user registration page and saving the data into the database. To store the data in the database table, create a table in which the values will be inserted. Now make one user registration jsp page.

  8. Servlet to add the data into database
    In this program we are going to insert the data in the database table from  html form. This servlet program working with HTML form in which there are two fields one is for name and the other one is for entering  password. In HTML form there is a submit button, clicking on which the values will be passed to the server.
  9. Login form
    Now for your confidence with JSP syntax, following example of login form will really help to understand jsp page. In this example we will create a simple dynamic JSP page that prints the user information into next page. With help of this example we are going to performed how display a login information on our browser.
  10. Session tracking basics
    Session tracking is a process that servlets use to maintain state about the series of requests from users across some period of time. In session tracking client first make a request for any servlet, container receives the request and generate a unique session track ID and gives it back to the client along with the response.
  11. Servlet to authenticate user
    For security everyone want to restrict the unauthenticated user for access the web site. Now in this example there is a common way of restricting access to websites is by using a use name and there password to be authenticate the connection that checked to database. 
  12. Create Web Page with jsp
    In this example we are going to display a current date and time on client browser. For this we will create a simple dynamic JSP page with java.util.Date class (<%= new java.util.Date() %>). 
  13. Simplest Login and Logout example in JSP
    This JSP example shows you how to login and logout the session between JSP pages. JSP provide an implicit object that is session in which use to save the data specific by the particular user.
