Wow! Good Luck.

J2EE is not something you simply "learn".

There are many many components to understand and master (if at all).

HTML/CSS are *not* true J2EE components.
Servlet 3.x, and JSP (although deprecated in favor of JSF) are.

i think it is more like swimming as read and get instructions jump into water, try, learn. More reading more practice. I feel J2EE is like ocean with so many subjects, topics in it. Learn as you need them since learning everything perfectly is not possible due to limited time we have.

Define what you mean with "JEE" (without the "2" these days). Do you mean servlets and JSP, EJB, web services, persistence, ...? JEE is quite broad and covers multiple subjects.

Out of the list you posted.... start with Servlet and JSP. The rest you posted are nice to know but Servlet/JSP is where to start.

Servlets and JSP are not anywhere near deprecated. It's rather ridiculous to say so.
