Bugs/Typos in Example Code
The first couple of pages were well written. Then the first example didn't work. Now I figured out how to correct the errors even though i'm only a new JSP programmer. I shouldn't have to do this! Nobody should. Terrible way to start a book. Who proofread and compiled the example source code? Demote or fire them. This error hurt the author and the reputation of the "Dummies" line of books.

Save yourself days of frustration -- don't buy this book
I have bought many Dummies books on various subjects and have always been pleased with them until now. I am a web developer and gave up in frustration after being unable to get the first example running. This book has numerous typos, the copy of the Tomcat server included on the CD didn't work, forcing me to download from the jakarta site, the examples on the CD have typos in them, also, and are write-protected in some manner that Tomcat absolutely despises. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR SANITY.

Beginners -- Keep looking elsewhere
I'm an experienced Java programmer trying to expand my horizons. I've spend many hours over the past few days trying to get the first example to work because of errors in the directions. Additionally, I found several code errors in the first java program. There is no errata on the web page and I can't find an e-mail address to e-mail the author like others have done. If you are a real beginner, this is not the book for you. If you are an experienced java programmer and like debugging code, go for it.
