Java Servlets (now called Jakarta Servlets) and JavaServer Pages (JSP; now called Jakarta Server Pages) are used to build web applications using Java. This course will teach you how to develop servlets and JSPs to develop dynamic web applications. You will learn how to use the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture to structure a complex system into more manageable parts.
