Expert in Java Servlet and JSP Technology to Give WSE Seminar

Johns Hopkins Gazette Online Edition

According to Marty Hall, senior computer scientist and adjunct faculty member in the Whiting School of Engineering, if today's high-tech and biotech companies want more customized, dynamic Web sites, static HTML needs a little help from Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technology. Hall will present his findings Thursday, Oct. 17, during a Coffeehouse Colloquium at the Montgomery County Campus in Rockville, Md.

The Coffeehouse Colloquium is a lunchtime seminar series during which faculty meet with research scientists from the community to share aspects of their work and exchange ideas in the areas of engineering, biotechnology, information technology, business and public health.

Hall has written several books on Java Servlet and JSP technology, which represents the next generation in Web application development environments. He will discuss the uses and potential of this technology in terms of applications, support capabilities and the growing career potential for JSP developers.

Hall is the author of four books on Java technology, published by Sun Microsystems Press and Prentice Hall. His first Servlet and JSP book, Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, is the all-time best-selling book on this technology and has been translated into 12 languages. Hall is president of, senior computer scientist in the Research and Technology Development Center at the Applied Physics Laboratory and an adjunct faculty member in the Whiting School's Part-Time Programs in Engineering and Applied Science.

The Oct. 17 event will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. in room 102 of the Academic and Research Building. Participants may bring lunch or purchase a meal at the campus cafe. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged. To register or obtain more information, contact Bonita Bennett at 301-294-7004 or
