Hello,
Could anybody let me know the best books on EJB, Servles and JSP, Swing, JDBC, RMI/CORBA. I would like to buy these and would also like to know if these books would be available in india.
Thanks,
Lalit.

I bought a book by Marty Hall, Core Servlets and JSPs, http://www.coreservlets.com/. It walks through the origin on the technologies, compares them with other technologies such as CGI/ASPs, and walks through real life examples of code in both servlets and jsps. It's a Sun book, so it's authoritative too. It doesn't help much with JDBC or RMI. The other book mentionned by namita, the JavaServer Programming J2EE Edition is the best by far. It's what I am using to study for my cert.
Good luck,
investor

Why not head over to the J2EE and Distributed Computing section of The Bunkhouse here at javaranch to see what we think of some of the books!

I prefer online resources for J2EE and others as these things are constantly changing and most of the books are either too simple or outdated.

Hi!
I think the best book what I read in this field was Java server programming J2EE Edition from Wrox.

I think enterprise java beans (o'reilly) is really good if you have to travel. Wrox mostly are too heavy to carry. But both are very good books

I thought I ought to add that there is actually a new version of the Java Server Programming book coming out later this month based on the J2EE 1.3 specification. It's not a major change from the J2EE edition already out (although it is a bit smaller) so if you don't already have the current version you may consider hanging on for a few weeks for the new edition. It covers thinks like EJB 2.0, JSP 1.2 and Servlets 2.3.
