I'm very new to J2EE. While I realize that there are dozens of good J2EE books out there, can anyone recommend a good J2EE book tailored for beginners?
Kind regards,
Ron

Oreilly's EJB book by Monson-Haeful is good.
Have you read Sun's J2EE tutorial?

Well I found Ed Roman's "Mastering EJB" more easy to read than Monson Rafel's Book.

I'm reading Mastering EJB right now. Chapter 7 and so far, so good.
Every now and then the author just leaves some little logical step or explanation out, forcing you (well, me mostly!) to really think about it, but that is generally beneficial.

These books ar eonly about EJBs.
If you want one covering all the J2EE technologies, you can read Professional Java Server Programming J2EE, 1.3 Edition .

I would agree with some the previous respondents:
Mastering EJB's by Ed Roman, et. al. is one of the best, and an easy to read book on the concepts of EJBs which directly is a discussion on J2EE as well.
The serverside.com site is a wealth of knowledge as well as the Sun's blueprints and petstore app.
Have fun.

What about SAMS "Teach Yourself J2EE in 21 Days" ?
I've just started working through it, so its early days yet, but it seems to be a well written straightforward guide. I prefer the style, and order that things are introduced to the Sun Tutorial.
