Hi,

Being a java j2ee developer what are the top 5 books one should read based on your reading experience. I do not have any specialization of particular area. I see hundreds of books in the market on java/j2ee. I want to hear the favorite choice of yours. Please advise. Thanks in advance

Java or JEE (no longer J2EE)?. You'll get a very different list for either subject.

JEE is much too big to be covered in a single book, not doe sit make sense to learn all of them when you are just getting started. What technologies are you particularly interested in?
