The JavaRanch Bunkhouse is a great place to start to find books on such subjects.

There you will find not only lists of books on various Java and web-related subjects, but expert reviews of these books.

Take a look!

I found good reviews for 'javascript definitive guide' on net. Is this book good for beginners like me or should I go for other resources.

The first place I'll start to learn Java Script is w3schools. After the basic concepts are familiar picking up any decent book on Java Script would be good.

For an absolute beginner Head First series is always a great way to start. You can have a look at a few pages here.

I would like to emphasize: Javascript is in no way related to Java EE. It is a standalone client side scripting language. The possibility to write Javascript in for example a JSP page doesn't make it part of Java EE. JSP is just a view technology where in you can write client side scripting/markup languages and make use of Java taglibs and Expression Language for dynamic interaction with Java.

But then why it is mentioned in jobs for j2ee that knowledge of javascript is must.

I mean here in india.

And i am talking about web part of j2ee.

It is just been mentioned separately, because it is not part of Java EE. Knowledge of Javascript (and also HTTP, HTML, CSS and XML) is fairly essential when coming into web development. Java EE (JSP/Servlet) just enables interaction between the mentioned client side languages at the client side and the Java language at the server side.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
