Hello everyone,
My questions are:

1]I need to know about some books which will help me to learn jsp.

2]Is it effective to learn jsp for future purpose? Means, Is it make any help if i do JSF or Spring or Structs, WebSphere or Weblogic framework in future? Or i should focus on other technology directly by avoiding jsp.


Regards

a good book is Head First Servlet and JSP, actually is for the SCWCD but it is also a beginners guide to JSP.

Good question, I think JSPs&Servlets will remain the core of everything, Spring and Struts are Front Controller patterns applied, the results are framework made with Servlets and JSPs. Knowing the basis is the way to understand everything!

By the way JEE6 certification have JSP&Servlets in their objective

System.out.print("Hello World! SCJP 5 79% - SCWCD 5 86%");

I used Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages http://www.coreservlets.com The site includes tutorials on Servlets and JSP. However, you also have access to the book's chapters for free download: http://pdf.coreservlets.com
I found just going through the book's chapters a great way to break into Servlets and JSP.

Good luck.

If you do not have a good grasp of JSP, you will be completely lost using technologies built upon it.

I also highly recommend the Murach's Java Servlets and JSP. If you do the exercises in the book, you'll have a very solid foundation.

Well, I used a couple books on JSTL, named JSTL in Action and Core JSTL - Mastering the JSP Standard Tag Library, but I think there are probably plenty of tutorials available online. Just look for JSTL rather than JSP.

Here's some I found just by Googling:
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/docs/tutorial-update6/doc/JSPIntro9.html
http://www.herongyang.com/jsp/tag.html
http://technology-related.com/javaee/5/docs/tutorial/doc/bnalj.html
This next one looks promising:
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/java/JSTL_CustomTag_Library.aspx

Of course, our own JSP FAQ has some information on JSTL (although I'm not sure how much there is on creating custom tag libraries):
http://faq.javaranch.com/java/JspFaq

Honestly, though, you can't been the books - any by purchasing them you help support the folks that work so hard to put all this great information together for us
