    This review is from: Understanding Linux Web Hosting (Paperback)

    A nice description of how to install various server side Java applications on a linux box. The narrative is straightforward to follow, and does not involve much previous acquaintance with linux. It does help, however, to know some Java, going into this book, which does not attempt to teach it, per se.

    You can see that it is easy to install a web server container, and to hook this up to a backend database. All of which can be free, open source code! Given that this rests on a free linux operating system, the combination is ideal for startups or those of you on limited budgets.

    An alternative reason for using this book is pedagogic. You can learn about running web servers and databases, even if you have no current need, but want to understand and be able to say that you know this material. For example, if you want to upgrade your job skills.
