I have enough experience for programming by using Java. And I want to study J2EE technology. Could you guys suggest me that how to start with? What technology I should master first, JSP? Servlet? EJB? Please tell me the best routine to follow and suggest some books for me. Thanks a lot.
best regards,
ico

Welcome to the JavaRanch
First of all, may I ask you to change your display name into something compliant with our little naming policy? (Thanks)
As to your question about the sequence of learning, I'd suggest something along the lines of:
1) Servlets and JSPs Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition, Pro JSP, 3rd Edition)
2) Enterprise JavaBeans (Enterprise JavaBeans, 3rd Edition)
3) Design best practices (Core J2EE Patterns, 2nd Edition, Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development)
4) Struts, Hibernate and other non-standard but common open source frameworks for different purposes
If you don't feel like buying multiple books, there are some nice all-in-one books (assuming you can lift those 1500 pages ).

If you want to learn Struts there is a nice book "Struts Survival Guide" bu Srikath Shenoy. It is awesome and helpful for a beginner. It is for sure needed to learn some basics of JSP, Servlets, EJB before venturing too much into Frameworks like Struts.
Since you are starting new, you can also look into Java Server Faces(JSF), since it could turn out to be next big thing for UI development for the web.
A combination of JSP, JSF and Struts may turn out to be a great combination.
Kishore.

Thanks, Lasse Koskela and Kishore Dandu.
I have changed the display to my name already. I didn't know there is a policy here and actually I did want to register as my real name but it is taken by someone.
Thanks again for your suggestion. It really helps.

I see. However, the policy does require both a first name and a last name so you'll need to come up with at least a real-looking last name as well.
Thanks again and sorry for the trouble.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
