Hi. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of Java programming similar to chapters 1-14 of Murach's Java Programming. Our servlet/JSP book includes enough coverage of HTML5/CSS3 to get you through the book, and it doesn't require any JavaScript. However, you would probably want to learn more about HTML5/CSS3 and JavaScript if you continue down the web development path.

I'm glad you think so. I think this book is a great way to get started with Java EE (if I do say so myself).

This is likely a better subject for the Jobs forum (where it has been discussed many times), but you are not going to make a carer out of a single technology. Be prepared to learn more than just Java.
