This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I used this book too, until I realised it's a bit outdated.. the problem was that I was new to servlets so I didn't realise it was 'out of date'. I noticed at http://www.servlets.com that he (Jason Hunter) is writing the Second Version due out soon. I'm waiting for that one. For now I stick ot the 'specs' and this board for my info.
