I am jumping in feet-first to server-side Java programming and have been charged with upgrading some servlets on a work project.
1) I have looked over the available texts and tenuously decided on "Core Java Servlets & JSP" by Marty Hall (ISBN 0130893404). Can anyone confirm that this is a worthwhile text?
2) Also, being a complete newbster to servlets, I ran into problems compiling some servlet code that referenced a sun.servlet.http package, specifically the HttpServer class. I am "developing" in JBuilder4 and I did find that this file (ServletServer.java) could be a generated file. However, JB4 can't find the package and I scoured every JAR within a mile to no avail. I am sure I'm missing something elementary that will be cleared up in the first 3 chapters of any servlet book, but would someone entertain the question of where this package can be found?
Thanks in advance......
