I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good book.

I am familiar with java syntax, jsp & applets, object orientation, and programming concepts.

I am looking for a book that takes it to the next level and shows the reader how to put together a professional application.

I tried the Murach's book but that is not doing it for me.

Thanks,

-Matt

A book that put together Java, JSP, Applets, OOP and programming concepts? I doubt such book exists and I doubt its usefulness.

However, "Effective Java" book should be definitely be in your list. Read it before doing any serious, real-world Java programming development.

yap, you should probably read someting on java first and then some generic JEE, and go from there to more specialized stuff. I read K & B first, and then core servlets
