Hi All, I'm new to JSP. Can someone plz tell me which book to use and is there any good onnline book? I've just passed SCJP1.4 and want to learn JSP. How long it will take to learn it ? (I've done ASP in the past) -- cheers Aarti
I really enjoyed: - "Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages"; and - "More Servlets and JavaServer Pages" I read the first one before my Sun SL-314 course and the next one afterwards. Both are by Marty Hall and are published by Prentice Hall/PTR (www.phptr.com) in a Sun Microsystems Press-endorsed series. The books give really good ground-up coverage of the Servlet and JSP arenas, pitched at a level I would imagine you will be comfortable with if you're posting to this forum. The first book is available FREE in its entirety as a PDF at www.coreservlets.com. all the code for both books can be downloaded from there as well. Marty Hall seems to have a pretty successful Java training career, which I'd take as a fair market endorsement of his capabilities as a teacher and author. Best of luck, Justin
I think you'll find that (numResponses == numOpinions) for this topic. And to further ensure this, here is my opinion: Learn the basics of JSP's from the excellent online tutorial at java.sun.com. Then, take the money you saved and buy "Advanced JavaServer Pages" by David Geary. Between this book and your web browser, you will find that you have all the JSP resources you will ever need. You may, however, want to pick up a servlet-specific book though, and for this I recommend "Java Servlet Programming" by Hunter and Crawford.

Manning's SCWCD Exam Study kit (Sun Certified Web Component Developer) is an EXCELLENT resource for someone who's going to be taking the exam -- but its not practical for someone who wants to learn how to use JSPs and Servlets. For that you need something with examples, tutorials and a lot of explanation. My favorite is Marty Hall's Core Servlets and Java Server Pages (Covers JSP 1.1 and Servlet 2.2 specs) / ]More Servlets and JavaServer Pages (Covers JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.3 specs).
