I just bought a copy of JSP Tag Libraries, and am curious to know if there are any plans to release a 2nd edition of the book. When the book was published in 2001, the JSP 1.1 spec was the standard and the 1.2 spec was just being ratified.

Now JSP 2.0 is the standard, and there have been many changes in the API. I'd like to see a 2nd edition of this book that delves into the new Interfaces and Classes in the JSP Tag API, as well as coverage of the new JSP Tag File option.

Obviously, I can still use the current book as it does cover the changes introduced by the 1.2 spec. However, we are preparing to migrate to a J2EE 1.4 environment and it would be good to know the new functions and capabilities offered. A handy reference book that deciphers the various API documents and offers first-hand experience is invaluable for this. I'm hoping that you are in the process of making this reference, as the current one is excellent.

TIA!
