I need to know your opinion guys on which is the best book to learn Java EE5, i prefer one that give code examples through the process of development.

P.S :i have a very good knowledge in the Java programming language, but with no experience in EE.

Thank you in advance for your help

I think "POJOs IN ACTION" would be fine, but it might require a bit reading on Hibernate and Spring.
I know from my friends that "J2EE without EJB" is also wonderful.
Above are two books about developing JavaEE with lightweight frameworks.

It's better that you state topics in EE that you don't know. If you don't know anything about Java EE and start look for books on JSP and servlets. Your question is too broad.

A good starting point which will allows you to understand the big picture of Java EE with several example for each component is is Java EE tutorial from SUN Microsystems.

It available for free and you can go toward more detailed books for each component after you find some basic knowledge of Java EE components use.
