Learning JSP

I am trying to learn JSP. Can anyone please advise any good books to learn JSP?

I have tried the following books but they are too quick and advanced for me:
Head First JSP/Servlets, Beginning JavaServer Pages (Wrox,2005), Murachs Java Servlets and JSP

I would like something that covers more details about JSP and Databases and goes slower than the above books.

I am now familiar with Java and OOP but never done it in the real world and learned the most from the Head First Java book but the Head First JSP/Servlets book is too advanced for me.

Please recommend as many books as possible because I want to buy as many as I can to learn JSP.

Hi Joseph, welcome to JavaRanch!

I like Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, Vol. 1 by Marty Hall and Larry Brown. But if the Head First book seems too advanced, then I'm not sure this one will be much different. Then again, maybe it's just a matter of style.

In any case, you're likely to get better suggestions in the JSP forum, so I'll move this thread there for you...

I agree. Here's the link:
