JSTL 1.0: What JSP Applications Need, Part 2

ONJava Newsletter for 09/13/2002

Dear Reader,

This week on ONJava.com, O'Reilly's "JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition" author Hans Bergsten offers part two in his series on the new JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Libraries (JSTL 1.0) specification. In this article, he discusses how JSTL can help you with internationalization and database access.

Also this week, O'Reilly's "Java Swing" author Marc Loy contributes an article on the SpringLayout Class, found in the latest Java 2 SDK version 1.4, as part of the Java Foundation Classes (JFC). The SpringLayout manager uses the notion of springs and struts to keep everything in place. In this article, Marc provides the FractionSpring.java and CompassButtons.java source files necessary to get started with your Java GUI development efforts.

And finally this week, ONJava.com begins the first in a a series of book excerpts on getting started with JXTA from O'Reilly's "JXTA in a Nutshell." In this excerpt, learn about the JXTA Java environment as well as JXTA class files, shells, and peers.
