Hi,
I haven't read or know anything about JSP or ASP except Java Server Pager & Activer Server Pager respectively.
I want to know what is difference between JSP Vs ASP. which is better to learn. I know Java & littlebit of VB. Also which one is hot in to the market? Which is the best way to learn JSP or ASP.
Thanks,
Angela

As it stands now, JSPs ara a generation ahead of ASPs.
If you consider Java being ahead of VB (!), then...

Angela,
JSP is a server-side scripting language. It is not used to design Web sites, you use client-side technologies (like HTML and JavaScript) for that. JSP is the par that extends the server so that your site can do intelligent things - like reading and writing databases, sending and receiving e-mail, personalizing content, processing form submissions, etc. JSP is used in much the same way as ASP, ColdFusion, Perl, and PHP are used.
Hope this helps.

Angela: Ben's book (I owe JavaRanch a review real soon!) is very good, if you know how to skip the "not for beginner" parts
In all fairness, his book is intended (as per back cover) for professionals.
I can see it absorbed easily by current HTML programmers who already know HTML/CSS. Except for the advanced Java segments (like "reflection")...
But I'm not writing the review here now
