do you want a reference guide or a book to learn from?

i would recommend core servlets by marty hall as a reference guide

and head's first servlets and jsp as a learning guide..

Don't stop just go for it, I've studied this one and thanks goes to the authors (Bert Bates, Kathy Sierra & Bryan Basham)..

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
