Please suggest some good books on javaEE 5. I am not looking for syntax. I was working with j2ee sometime back. Now I want to brush up my knowledge.
I need a book which covers basic and advanced concepts in depth.

JEE 5 is huge. It's hard for a single book to go into depth about everything. Sun's official book tries, but this is their online tutorial on printed form and I don't particularly recommend it.

For in depth information, you might find it more useful to get a book on the parts. For example EJB 3 in Action is good for the EJB layer and JEE packaging. I'm sure there is a similarly good book for Servlets/JSPs in JEE 5. For other parts, you could probably use tutorials as the back end and front end books would cover most of it.
