I am looking to purchase a good book that can help me to learn to develop J2EE Web Applications. I have some exposure to JSP, Servlets, JDBC and EJB. I am not looking to buy a book that explains the details of JSP and Servlets. I want a book that helps me to build a web site (using MVC or some other framework) using the above mentioned technologies.
Right now I'm going through "Head First JSPs and Servlets"...the Head First style is not for everyone (if you're looking for a "cram session" book it's not good for that), but I love the style. I find that it takes a little longer to get through the head first books than other books, but I learn the material much more thoroughly.
My two cents...
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
