I want to start developing web applications using jsp and servlet.I have basic knowledge of java(OCAJP certified), so where should i start and what are the best resources to learn them?I had a look at books at amazon,but they were pretty old.
So what should be my approach to learn them as if i am starting from zero?
Also what are the prerequisities that would later help me while learning jsp/servlet?

If you plan to be working with Servlets 2 (rather than newly-available Servlets 3), any book from the past 8 years or so should be up-to-date enough.

Be sure to concentrate on modern JSP with the JSTL and EL and not obsolete scriptlets.

I don't know anything about jsp or servlet.What would you recommend - servlets2 or servlets3?
I guess i will have to learn servlet before learning jsp.And which book or online resources would you recommend to learn servlets/jsp?

I would recommend Murach's Java servlets and JSP book.
I love it.

go to www.murach.com
you can purchase it there for less than what you'd pay at bookstores.

Depends. What do you want to do? What servlet container will you use?

And which book or online resources would you recommend to learn servlets/jsp?

The Head First servlets book is a perennial favorite.

Meh. I haven't found any that yank my chain.

And above all, avoid roseindia! Horrible!
