The first book is not really cover all about JSP and servlet that are required in SCWCD 1.4. If you are new to J2EE, it is a good starting point.
The second book is very helpful to learn J2EE patterns and covers all patterns, except MVC.
Most of SCWCD fans must know and have the following books: 1) Head First Servlets & JSP (ISBN: 0596005407) not released 2) SCWCD Exam Study Kit: Java Web Component Developer Certification (ISBN: 1930110596)
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
