Hey all,

I was trying to find a good book to buy to learn the concepts of (and how to write) JSPs and Servlets and how they tie into the J2EE system.

I hear the "Head First JSP/Servlets" book is a pretty good one. Does anybody have any other recommendations?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I did my SCWCD certificate with it and had no prior knowledge of it . Check to which group of learner you belong (visual or auditive). If you are a visual learner then this book is really for you.

hello,

I recommend "More Servlets and JSP", Marty Hall. Another option is the EE tutorial by Sun, which has improved significantly and focuses well on best practices.

I am in the early stage of learning JSP/Servlets and have probably around 12 JSP/Servlet books including the ones people recommeded in your post. The best one for me was Murach's Java Servlets and JSP. Very simple examples and it was way above the others for showing me how to work with JDBC.

It is also mentioned in the Bunkhouse site on the JavaRanch site.
