I have no knowledge of JSP. Now I would like to learn JSP 2.0.
Do I need to learn JSP first (or JSP 1.2)? Are there any good websites
or books to start learning JSP 2.0?
Thanks a lot!

actually its not quite a cross-post seeing as though in the Servlets forum she asked about learning more about Servlet 2.4... and here in JSP she's asking about the new JSP spec. -- but anyway.
If you'd like to learn about both in one slick book check out Core Servlets & JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition by Marty Hall I used the 1st edition to learn the old spec -- and it was great. Marty comes by the Ranch pretty often too -- so you might even get some help from the man himself!
As for specific JSP books check out Pro JSP by Simon Brown et. al.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
