Hi everyone,
I am going to be starting to work on my first big web project in a few months, and was wondering what I should be reading in the meantime. I don't know anything about web security or UML. Should I start learning about one of these? Which do you think is more important? Can anyone recommend some good books?
Thanks in advance,

Do you know Servlet's and JSP, if you don't you may want to start there first. Of course, I am assuming you already know Java.

I do know servlets and JSP (or at the very least am studying them now). I am reading the EXCELLENT text "Core Servlets and Java Server Pages" by Marty Hall.
Just wondering what other topics I should be reading
I agree. Here's the link:
