I have been trying to learn how to create web services for last few weeks. In the process I learned about xml, mySQL, JDBC, servelets, and javabeans. At this point, if you give a specific task such as 'get price for a certain item from the database and display it on the webpage' I can do it. However, I stil don't get the big picture. I don't know how I should put together JDBC, servlets, ejb and jsp and build a professional site.
Lets say for example, I have a MySQL database with the following fields:
task_id, task_name, task_day, task_description.
Now I want to build a webpage where I can access and munipulate the information. What is the proper and professional way of doing this?
Many thanks in advance.
