I wanted to know if there is any good book which will help me to design and architect web applications and use java's object oriented features with the web application.. Most books just talk abt servlets, jsp, beans.. any reference , advice about this?

How about expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development? That seems to have good reviews on amazon... I am not using ejbs yet... so just jsp,beans,servlets.. Which is the best book to buy of these 4?

Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development is a very very good book. But its pretty advanced.( must read!) Before you read this book u should be comfortable with Servlets,EJBs,distributed object protocols ,familiarity with RMI,JDBC,JNDI.and Design patterns.(examples use JBOSS). IMO (path) Advanced JavaServer Pages --->Professional Jsp Site Design (wrox)--->HeadFirst EJb--->J2ee Design Patterns Applied(wrox)----->Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development [ November 26, 2003: Message edited by: Amer Khan ]
Priya, I think you will find it tough to find *a* book that will give you the whole picture, one such book which claims to cover all aspects of java and web is Java for the Web with Servlets, JSP and EJB - it has good reviews but I never appreciated this book. I think a good read about the MVC and core Servlets and JSP by Marty Hall are a DON way to start off. Then as Amer as said, you can go into the more detailed and advanced topics. HTH
