Yes, both are good books. Remember to study details of protocols, like JRMP, IIOP etc. Also study details of argument-passing in many remote frameworks, like RMI and CORBA.

Another good book is the GoF. Be sure to fully understand all GoF patterns and their application in J2EE.

I strongly recommend that you buy the Whizlabs simulator.
