IMHO first familiarize yourself with difference between ASP and JSP will get you motivated to learn JSP better. Secondly, incidential benefits will include ability to provide sound technical reasoning for going JSP instead of ASP. check out sun web site http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/jsp-asp.html
Your Book Prescription: Rx "Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP)". ISBN is 0130893404JSP
Taking into consideration your background I feel you may want to start with Marty Hall's do read the amazon reviews. btw...Marty doesn't pay me
Hope this helps -Ravi

I've been fairly impressed by the O'Reilly book on JSPs. I believe the title is simply Java Server Pages. This book is for the real beginner (non-Java programmer) but at the same time goes into a fair amount of depth.

I have O'Reilly's "JavaServer Pages" (describes what JSP is all about, fewer examples more conceptual) and Wrox's "Professional JSP" (thicker, more examples). I like them both. O'Reilly is better to read, and Wrox is better to examine examples. You decide what kind of a learner you are, or what kind of info you need. There, of course, are other good ones out there, but these are the two I have.
Cheers,
Scott
PS. Switch over to Java.

... well, I'm biased, of course. But if not my book, the Fields and Kolb book is very good. Believe it or not, the JSP specification is not too hard to digest, either.

Hi,
Phil's Books on JSP is an excellent "must-have" resource.Apart from that, you may consider reading "Core Servlets and JSP", Marty Hall, Sun Microsystems Press.
Hope this helps.

I have used "core Servlets and JavaServer Pages" and "Web Development with JavaServer Pages." While the "core" book is nice for learning about both servlets and JSPs, we are using JSPs almost exclusively and I have found "Web Development with JavaServer Pages" (Duane K. Fields and Mark A. Kolb) to be easy to read and fairly comprehensive. I was glad to see that Phil Hanna ("JSP: The Complete Reference") likes it (after his own book of course). If he likes that book, I imagine his is probably of similar quality. I would love to win a copy of it and find out!
