For maximum learning - get the free Tomcat server from - it includes examples, JavaDocs and the source (100% Java)
For questions of configuration - an absolute must is the Java Servlet API - that you can download from - with the release of the 2.2 API, Sun nailed down specs for configuration of web applications that had previously varied from one server to another.
