I agree with Tony Alicea on the first book mentioned above by Marty Hall - Core Servlets and JaveServerPages. It is a good book to get started with.
The set up of the JSWDK-1.0.1 is a bit tricky with the classpath and all. If you decided to go this route and you run in to some problems, let me know....I can save you some time and headache.
Good luck!

Sun has some of the best tutorials.
I did find an excellent jsp book, instant jsp, just like the servlet book above but jsp. I can expense books here at work so I have most of the others.

I think the O'Reilly book is too old; Servlets 2.0 when the current version is 2.2.

hi, there,
There is good articles about which book is better for JSP and servlets in JavaWorld magazine (online). I forgot the author's name and title of the articles. Just search it online at JavaWorld site. I am sure you can find it. Good luck!

see there are many books available for the things that you have asked ?
see there is no single book which gives you good info.
for servlets ,
java servlet programming :- by jason hunter ( O'Reilly )
another ( Instant Java Servlets ) one is not that in details as that of hunter , but it is simple & explaining Javawebserver completely . The publication is Macgrawhill. the author is Karl Moss.

As far as jsp books are considred , I will go with the WROX press books
1. Prfessional Javaserver Programming
2. Professional JSP
I don't know about Prof. Marty Hall's book. But , if you are in India , then are you ready to spend $50/-. It is not available in Indian Edition. The books I have mentioned aboveare available in Indian edition.

there are many online resources. You can go to javaworld site where there are good articles posted by Govind Sheshadri on JSP.
then , you have official Sun Tutorial for your help. You can got Marty Hall's Site ( i think ) where you can get more info.
comparision of the various books on jsp is posted in Javaworld recently.
I hope this is useful.
