I am studying in "Sams teach yourself JavaServer Pages 2.0 in 24 hours".. I don't feel I am learning much from this book, so my question was, does anybody have any recommended reading for learning JSP?

Hi Jeremy,
my recommendation is:

Head First - "Servlets & JSP" by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates
if you are completely new in JSP and JSTL,

and you can have beside this
Manning - "JSTL in Action - 2003" and "advanced JavaServer Pages" from Sun, by David M. Geary, to see realy use of it all, and if you dont understand something, just go back on Head First - "Servlets & JSP" to refresh your self

my suggestion is first you download the jsp2.1 specification then learn its purpose with examples.. then only you can get good knowledge.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
