i have read the HFSJ book. it was great time. now i want to jump into real time web application in order to utilise the stuff which HFSJ gave me. as iam new to web applications i need an sample web application with codes which could guide me in step by step procedures of building a web application using java,jsp,servlets and ejb under any appliaction servers like tomcat, web logic and with any IDE like netbeans,eclipse&myeclipse.
so i kindly request javaranchers to map me to the appropriate book with the author name or any source, weblinks which could help this upcoming web application developer to reach the sky's
There, you can find useful sample applications, free pdf books and a lot of stuff related to web applications developed with both J2EE 1.4 and J2EE 5.
A very helpful starting point would be the Java Pet Store Demo which is part of Java BluePrints and contains a real web application started from zero showing all the most likely concepts you would found in the real world.
I also would recommend you to download the J2EE 1.4 Samples which contains a lot of code and real world examples.
