I have some j2ee experience but not very mcuh. I know java, jsp, servlet, struts, hibernate. But I haven't done anything like Spring, EJB 3, Ajax, web service stuff. Can you recommend me some books that provide step by step hand on instruction for these subjects ? I don't like those pure theory book. I like the books that provide real and small examples so that you can not only learn the theory but also gain some hands on experience.
Mark, - EJB 3 in Action - AJAX in Action - AJAX in Practice
All of these are published by Manning - they have a good style with small examples. (I haven't read their Spring or Web Services books, but they are likely good as well since the template encourages the style.)
