hi Qaisar Jamal,

Welcome to Javaranch

J2EE is more concern with web developement in java.
Servlet & Jsp would be your first place for starting it...

Best books for beginner

Please don't post in all-uppercase letters. That's considered shouting, and thus rude, all over the net: KeepItDown

You can find lots of Java-related books with reviews in the JavaRanch Bunkhouse.

Indeed, Core Servlets and JavaServer pages is a great book, but it's pretty intimidating for a beginner.

Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, Vol. 1: Core Technologies by Marty Hall, Larry Brown

It's a great reference, and has some great code, but for learning Java and J2EE, it can be a little intimidating.

For learning Java, just Java, I totally and highly recommend Head First Java. Just read the amazon reviews and you'll want to by it:

Head First Java by Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates

For learning J2EE, you need to start with Servlets and JSPs:

Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam (SCWCD)

Combine that with the Head First EJB book, and you'll be all over Java and J2EE.

Head First EJB (Brain-Friendly Study Guides; Enterprise JavaBeans)

For learning J2EE, you should also check out some of my multimedia tutorials that I link to in my signature.

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
