I'm just starting to learn javascript with Pal Wilton's Beginning Javascript-2nd edition, it seems that your web site doesn't support it any more. Do I have to change my book to 3rd edition. any difference between 2nd & 3rd ?

Wrong forum. Java has *NOTHING* to do with JavaSCRIPT except a bit of similarity in syntax and the name. The two languages aren't really close in either usage or details.

"JSP" means "Java Server Pages". Code that runs on the server. JavaScript runs on the client, in the browser.

If you can't find a generic JavaScript forum to post in, why not post in the forum for the 3rd edition of the book??? At least the author will be aware you have posted. I doubt seriously that he monitors post in this forum, which is completely unrelated.

There are *NO* tags in Java.

There are tags in JSP.

Don't confuse the two. JSP is just an easy way to create servlets (i.e., web pages, code that can be invoked via an HTTP request), using Java as the pseudo-scripting language.

JSP tags are converted by the JSP engine into put Java code and then that pure Java code is compiled.

To make things more complicated, there are several "levels" of JSP tags. The oldest and simplest are very simple (and efficient!). But then there are MANY "tag libraries", so you have to decide which tag library (or libraries) you are going to use. And, finally, you can create your own tag libraries.

So try to keep JSP and Java and tag libraries separate. All are used together to create "JSP pages", but they are truly almost independent parts of the whole.
