I ordered Bill's new book sight unseen because of his excellent work in the past and the time he has spent both here and at Marcus's site answering questions, he must really care?, plus I just had a "feeling" it would be good. I wasn't disapointed, it came saturday and I'm only up to chapter 2 but it looks excellent!!(I already have 4 of the books the above)there are lots of code samples, excellent explanations etc., If you're looking for a book, its a good one !!! - Java developers guide to servlets and JSP - and some guy named Wheaton wrote a chapter.
