Web Technologies: A Computer Science Perspective is ideal for courses in Web-based Systems (aka Web/Internet Programming/Systems) in Computer Science, MIS, and IT departments.


This text introduces the key technologies that have been developed as part of the birth and maturation of the World Wide Web. It provides a consistent, in-depth treatment of technologies that are unlikely to receive detailed coverage in non-Web computer science courses. Students will find an ongoing case study that integrates a wide spectrum of Web technologies, guidance on setting up their own software environments, and a variety of exercises and project assignments.

quite an old one. Might be useful for south indians following the Anna University syllabus.
But very comprehensive and detailed and could be used as a ready reckoner for beginners
