I thought "Core Servlets and JavaServer pages" by Marty Hall was really good as well. It was well explained and had lots of good examples.

I agree that the "Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages" by Marty Hall is pretty good. I also like "Web Development with Java Server Pages" by Duane K. Fields, Mark A. Kolb

I agree about the Core Servlets book, especially if you are just learning servlet/JSP programming. I don't think that the Wrox book ("Professional SErver Programming...") is good as a learning tool (it's a good reference, however). Just my opinion.

Oh if only the prices at amazon.com where in canadian dollars, I'd buy your book in a second, Bill! The review sounded really good.

Annette, is your reluctance to purchase because of the currency conversion, or because it would be worth the price in Canadian but not in US?

Well, if you convert it to canadian it would be worth about 60$, which is well worth it if I could get work to pay for it. But since I'm just a contractor, work won't even provide me with a pen, so it's just a little too much for me to spend right now out of my own pocket, especially since I bought a 60$ book just last week (Marty Hall's). It was the only one I found at chapter's. I would probably have to buy Bill's at amazon.com if I wanted it. Maybe next month!

May I recommend finding a "used computer book store". Toronto has at least three great ones. Find a book that is 3 years old, pay about $5 cdn, read and enjoy. Also, write to the publisher, and say that the CD is missing. Some publishers take pity and send a brand new book to you, with the newest CD. (It happened to me!).

so how do the "Java Developer's Guide to Servlets and JSP" and the "WROX Professional JSP" compare?
like, which one has more pictures ;-)

I think Wrox is very good if you aren't a complete newbie.
JSP and Servlets aren't that complicated like for example that OOD/P, UML, Pattern stuff. So books are getting better. Because book-authors learn from the strong points and weaknesses about other books which explain the JSP/Servlet-Apis.
Read the first 100 pages of JSP2 last days and found it the clearest explanation ever about HTTP, Servlets and Servlet-Engines.
