Hello , I'm new to Java EE .
I have been reading the oficial JavaEE Tutorial from SUN, and it look good , but, i have also found the book J2EE Design and Development from Rod Johnson , from what i have read in the reviews, it's kind a big deal. So my questions are, it's this a good "starting" book,? How much of the book Spring Framework it's valid or working in current version?
Thank you .

Luis,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Are we talking about the book Rod Johnson published in 2002? If so, I would recommend you not read it. It was an excellent book in 2002. By now, some of the "best practices" are "anti-patterns" and you would be following bad advice.

Thank you,Jeanne.
Yes , I refer to that book, I know it's very old . Now , what i would really like to know , it's which reference (online or book) could i use to develop my Java EE skills and also,of course, Spring framework.
Than you for your help and for the welcome .

Hi Luis,

Java EE is huge and learning web-tier components like Servlets and JSPs would lay a good foundation. Then you could move on to frameworks.

I liked "Head First Servlets and JSPs" by Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates, Bryan Basham to learn about the web tier components.

Then for Spring framework, you could start with the Spring Core and Spring MVC chapters of Spring reference documentation
