Download and install Tomcat 5.0 (using J2SE 1.4, JSP2.0 and Servlet 2.4) at
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html
Config it well, check / study the examples inside tomcat.

This is good for starting(note: HFB contains examples using Tomcat 5.0).

I'm talking about hard copy.

Thanks

Hi Suresh,

You can start studying the Study Kit by Mikalai Zaikin.. http://java.boot.by/wcd-guide/

Or there is one more study guide:
http://www.its.caltech.edu/~weikun/SCWCD_Notes.pdf

Are you in US? Which state? Did you try public libraries? I am in ILLINOIS and I got HFSJ book in Northbrook public library, at least for three weeks you would the book, and eventully you might be able to renew it also. No need to buy and bring from India.

All the best!

Hi Anand,

Thaks for the pointer. No, I'm not in US. I'm in singapore.

I haven't tried but I think its possible to get HFSJ in public library. Anyways this is the only Head first book missing in my library and I wish to have a copy of my own :-)

Thanks
