For servlets/jsp I would suggest
the specs, HF-servlets/jsp
and Core servlets&JSP
(you can download the free book

For EJB,I also suggest reading

I haven't read HF Servlets but other books in the series are excellent.
My preference is Marty Hall's "Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages"

My favourite book is the "Apache Tomcat Bible" from Eaves, Jones and Godfrey. It explains how to download and install Java, MySQL, Tomcat, Eclipse, Ant ... and above all, it gives an overview of the Model-View-Controller design pattern.
Have you checked out Aspose?
