I'm not sure what you're interested in. Are you looking to program, or just get an idea of what J2EE is all about?

A good place to start is the actual specification:

http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=244

On my own website, I give an overview of what J2EE is all about, with a few coding examples, but not going too deep into the API:

http://www.technicalfacilitation.com/get.php?link=whatisj2ee

That's a good place to start.

As far as books go, there are a number on the market. You will notice most, highly rated books deal with either web development, or EJB development, but not both. J2EE is a big topic, and when books try to cover all of J2EE, they sometimes leave readers feeling either overwhelmed, or underwhelmed.

I've heard good things about J2EE: The Big Picture:

J2EE: The Big Picture

Beginning J2EE is a popular read:

Beginning J2EE

You can also get Beginning J2EE 1.5, although I wouldn't worry too much between 1.4 and 1.5 at the beginning stage:

Beginning J2EE 1.5

But if you are new to J2EE, and you want to learn how to program, there are two books you really, really need, and that's the Head First books, one on web development (Servlet and JSPs) and the other on Business Component Development (EJBs etc)

Head First Servlet and JSPs

Head First EJBs

Cheers!
