Hi,
I am starting on a JSP/Tomcat/database project pretty soon. I am fairly well versed with Java. I am looking for a book that will get me up and running pretty quickly. I am looking for a concise book that will guide me in the right direction rather than a 1000 page volume. I couldn't find this topic in recent threads, so please direct me to the right thread if this has been discussed already.
Thank you all for your time.
Regards
Ravi

I know you're not after a big book, but I really like the WROX book Professional JSP 2nd Edition.

It includes a chapter on a database project, using Tomcat/mySQL/JSP

The first edition also has a chapter on this, so perhaps you can find one that is on sale, or in a used book store.

I would also strongly recommend this book. And although it is precisely something you said you didn't want (a 1000-page volume, to the page), if your goal is in fact to get ramped up on JSP, the first few chapters will have you coding useful JSP. You don't need to read the whole book to learn basic JSP, just the first couple hundred pages.
