Well, I have a book coming out late this month- (in which our esteemed host did the Applets - Servlets chapter)
"Java Developer's guide to Servlets and JavaServer Pages"
but I don't know if it will make it to India.
There is plenty of free information on the net. I suggest looking at the Orion server tutorials - esp. on custom taglibs. I think that is:
You should also get the JSP 1.1 API from

I've tried <a href=""></a> page, and it came up once. The other few times I have tried, the 'page cannot be displayed' page pops up. Perhaps they need help solidifying their server.

I purchased Web Development with Java Server Pages by Duane Fields and Mark Kolb (Manning Publications) last week and have found it to be comprehensive and approachable. Although it exists in electronic format, support the authors hard work and buy it.
