Looking for a good JSP book

I'm looking for a good JSP book. Any suggestions?
I have a basic understanding of Servlets (I read Deitel & Deitel's Java: How To Program book - the green one with bugs on it). I'm also studying for the Java Programmer exam. I wouldn't mind a book that goes into more detail than I presently need.

Hello There
I want to recomend a book which i have read and found it to be very usefull. The book is
1 JSP By Wrox Press with several photos on it and probably red in color.
2 Java Server Programming also from Wrox press and this is a realy good one and i asure u that you will love something which goes more that servlets and jsp into java.

Best Regards

Thanks much!
Just curious, are there any other publishers that you, or anyone, would recommend. I'll check out the Wrox books.

I havn't read William's Book but he does have a rather a good reputation so it would be a good choice. You can get it here. However I have read Professional JSP published by Wrox with several authors ... it's a BIG book and will tell you just about everything you ever wanted to know about how JSPs work with other Java stuff as well as just how JSPs work!
You can get it here.
Follow these links to Amazon and you'll also contribute a few useful pennies to Javaranch.

I have found the Java Server Pages, by Fields/Kolb, published by Manning, an excellent book, very readable, very informative, new ideas, and goes beyond the basics. I haven't read the whole thing, but it's been helpful so far.
I agree. Here's the link:
