JSP/J2EE Application Samples for novice

Hi Ranchers,
finally scored a job in J2EE after getting the SCWCD(a two year hunt). Have to build a company website that holds a bit of dynamic content that will have to be updatable and although I don�t have all the details yet, as far as I can see the most complicated thing is having some protected pages and a CV registration page where users can edit their Cv at a later stage. Unfortunately the economy is not too good yet so I have to do this without any supervision at all, I am the only java programmer there. As this will be my first real J2ee project I am anxious to do this correctly, not in a haphazard way or develope bad habits. I mean I can think off the top of my head exactly how it could be done but as I have little or no experience I can�t be sure if it is the correct or standard way of doing it. Can anyone recommend any websites that have good examples of applications that do the follwing:
display content stored in a db;
facilitate editing of this content from the db;
use session beans for simple processes such as verifying details;
This is not to copy the code but just to see best practices in practice.
Also can any one recommend any tools that I should be using that would be a valuable asset on the CV later on?
Any help would be really great

Hi Will, congrats on the new position.
I don't have any samples to send you to, but do have this one bit of advice: do yourself a favor and train yourself to use the best-practice "Model 2" architecture pattern for your web applications. I'm sure you can find lots of information on-line about this pattern which uses a combination of Servlets (for control) and JSP (for display).
I'm sure others will have helpful pointers as well.
