I don't know what learning #Java
is like today, but it wasn't bad 15-20 years ago. Apache Tomcat, servlets, a little bit of JSP, the mod_jk connector from Tomcat to Apache Web Server. Using #JDBC
to connect to MySQL 3.23 and Microsoft SQL Server 2000. Comparing servlets to Perl CGI and JSPs to PHP (which were topics in other classes I took).
