I will begin to learn JSTL soon and a friend from USA will send me the books about that but... I need to indicate him which book i want. I would want to know what is the best book for to learn JSTL from scratch.
I was looking for books in internet and I had found these:
1) book 1
2) book 2
3) book 3
4) book 4

The book1 and book2 seem good!. does anyone have other suggestions?
NOTE: I just can to request 2 books.

PD: Excume me if this is not the right place for to post this question but... I dont know an expert in it here.

Muchas Gracias

In my opinion, all of those books are too old to be of much use as they were all published in 2002 and 2003. I think you'd be better served to just grab the free JSTL Specification (see JSP FAQ for links) and read that,

Ok Thanks
I had noted that also but...I see the internet tutorials and see the book and these use the same code. or I am wrong? Also I see recent books in the stores!!!
Is to say, I would want to know what differences there are between the old JSTL and the actual JSTL really??

Thanks agains

If the books cover JSTL 1.1 or 1.2 and JSP 2.x, they'll be current. Anything prior too that is just too antiquated to be useful.

But really, the JSTL isn't rocket science. All you really need is the specification.

Ok thanks, now I understand.
I checked the books in internet and 3 of 4 work with JSP 2 (including Expression Language!) but.. they use JSTL, 1.0, 1.0.3 and 1.1

Thanks for the help. I know that in internet there are too information
for many reasons.
I will analize and compare the diferences better when I got these and I will be very carefull in not use the old things include in the book.

Muchas Gracias
