I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I am trying to learn Java/JSP and I am looking for some advice on how to proceed.
My company of course will nolonger pay for training so I have to do it on my own and since I do not want to waste my money I was wondering what is the best method and starting point.

I am basically an ASP and Cold Fusion programmer who is becoming more of a project manager than an actual programmer anymore but I still want to learn Java/JSP so that I can help out my co-workers and to also understand that if what they are doing is correct. I am very good at ASP/Cold Fusion but I have drawn a blank on the Java training. I have looked into schools and training in New York City but they do cost alot and most of them are during the day when I work.

Does anyone have any recommendations about a good book or even a good learning center. I am mainly interested in JSP as that is the direction my company has choosen for the future (along with some .Net).
