Which ever book you end up with, you should start by downloading and installing the latest version of Tomcat. It comes with the JavaDocs you will need to study and numerous examples. Do NOT install Tomcat as a service, install it as a regular application.

@William

Sorry William, but I have already installed it as a "service". But why one should not install it as a service?? Your explanation will be really helpful.

As you start your servlet programming experimentation you will be wanting to stop and restart Tomcat many times. There will be times when Tomcat mysteriously dies or fails to do what you expect. Clues to problems with starting will be much easier to see if you start Tomcat as an application from a command prompt window.

There is no clear cut answer to this question. It depends on the individual and it will vary. The bottom line, read/practice till you are comfortable.

That's an unanswerable question. I've been using JSP and Servlets for over 10 years (started with beta JSP 0.92) and I'm still learning things about it.

A key concept I found very useful is to get hands on experience;
study + "read/write lots of code"
