Ajax and Java book, which is the better?

All,

I'm looking for a book that explains how Ajax and Java works together. So far, there are 2 books:

Practical Ajax Projects with Java Technology (Practical)
by Frank W. Zammetti
Pro Ajax and Java Frameworks (Pro) by Nathaniel T. Schutta

I'm new to Ajax and have some J2EE experience. Is one better than the other? Looking at the book description in amazon, each book covers Ajax with J2EE. Which one does a better job at explaining the integration between the 2 technology? I'm currently working on a project using J2EE and struts and would like to integrate some Ajax in the application.

I just finished the first one and liked it, but my recommendation is that you buy this book as one of two, one book for AJAX itself, and the other for AJAX and Java. This and AJAX in Action, perhapse? I haven't read the other.
