I have learned Java at school to create offline programs, such as command line programs and swings.
And now, I am wondering what kind of Java is used for the web. One of job requirements on many of job postings for web developer is Java. So, I wonder if it is Java applet, or something else that I didn't learn from school?
Java used for the Web is still Java, however there are technologies that go with it.
Basically when you make Java Web pages you can do it a few different ways, one was is to use a Java Servlet while another is to use a JSP (JavaServer Page). A JSP is basically a high level Servlet that allows you to mix in Java code with your html in the form of Scriplets or JSTL Tags (Special Java Tags that resemble HTML Tags).
Thank you for the answer. I have looked at the page you gave, but unfortunately I could not imagine of any simple real life application. It is hard for me to learn something when I could not figure the final state.
If it is possible, could you also give me some examples?
