In my signature are specs for servlets and JSP.
Reading these documents would be a good way to start gettting back up to speed with these technologies.

Tomcat 6 is the latest version of Tomcat.
It supports Servlet spec 2.5 and JSP 2.1.

There are some nice tutorials at coreservlets.com specially Marty Hall's.
If feel Marty Hall is a great author, besides him you can go for SCWCD by Hanumant deshmukh.

Arnav Mitra, I removed a couple of items from your post that may have been suggesting something we don't approve of...

The full standard support is found here.

Thank you all.

I am still looking online user-friendly tutorials which teaches from very basic on Java Servlets. (If possible gives nice pictures with examples)

Do you know any?

Thank You,
Angela

Well, it depends on what you mean by basic. If you used to work with J2EE and servlets like you said, the basic principles of servlets and JSP have not changed since then. Like mentioned above, the coreservlets and more servlets books are a good place to start. The former is available online.

I agree with Bosun.
Servlets haven't changed much.

JSP on the other hand has.
One of our sheriff's has written quite a lot about the new features in our Journal (with pictures, etc..).

Here is a small application that helps you to post your skills into a database also it offers an option to cut-paste a part of your resume.

It uses a simple HttpServlet, a DAO and HTML. Hope it gives you some insight to the Servlet API. I'll share the code here.

The DAO
