Hi everybody:

I would like to learn about servlets and JSP. What resources would you suggest? Are there any good online tutorials or e-books? What are your thoughts on the following two books?:

1. Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, Volume II (2nd Edition) (Core) (Paperback)
by Marty Hall, Larry Brown, Yaakov Chaikin

2. Murach's Java Servlets and JSP
by Andrea Steelman, Joel Murach

Thanks for the help!

I haven't read the second one, I liked the first one. I thought of it as 'the book I wished I had when learning Servlets and JSPs'. Many important pieces of information that I had to learn the hard way.

HeadFirst Servlets and JSPs is also popular.
I agree. Here's the link:
