Hi guys,

Looking now to servlet books. After some searching, I'm looking to 2 ones: Java Servlet Programming Bible and Head First Servlets & JSP Both have good recommendations and reader reviews. Any impressions from anyone used one of them or both?

---<br />Best regards,<br />Jake

The Head First Servlets & JSP is an excellent book and worth its money in gold. Although this book is geared towards the SCWCD certification it is also serves as good introduction to Servlets and JSP's.

Good Luck !

I agree... Head First S&JSP is an excellent book, as are all of the books in the Head First Series. It is a very enjoyable book to read, and it will get you up to speed quickly.

I alos like the servlet and JSP books by Marty Hall. They are: Core Servlets and JSP, and More Servlets and JSP.

The HFS book and the two books above will give you solid foundation.
