And a very good book for beginners is the "Apache Tomcat Bible" from Eaves, Jones and Godfrey. This book explains how to download and install Java, Tomcat, MySQL, Ant, Eclipse and other stuff you might need to build a web application. But the most important thing is that it gives you an overview of a web application built following the design principles of the Model-View-Controller. A must have, if I may say so.
