I hope to learn Java Servlet. Should I learn Java for someweeks first before I learn Java Servlet or is it possible for me to start away learn Java Servlet? I have Object Oriented Programming background. Thanks

its worth learning java for a while - although by learning servlets you will be indirectly learning java two. Remember though, that trying to learn both at once will be very likely a very frustrating process since you will be trying to deal with problems of both. Your OO background will definitely help a great deal but java has certain foibles that everyone struggles with - classpath, packages and FQNs...
