Hi Karen,
The answer depends on your hardware. If you have a gig of RAM and a CPU to match, then go v5.1, else go 5.0 and update to the 5.0.2. Also the 5.1 distribution is about 1.2 gig, whereas the 5.0 is only about 800 meg (give or take) on disk.
If you truly can't find the appropriate redbooks, let me know and I'll point out a few. I presume you are looking for a general developers handbook. Realize, however, that the the built-in help is magnificent.
Regards,

Hello Karen,
Try this Redbook for starters:
WebSphere Studio Application Developer Version 5 Programming Guide (SG24-6957-00)
Here is a handy link to it:

Hello Howard,
I have a few questions that may sound very silly ... but I need these answers .... pls help !!
I went through the book you mentioned. It quotes:
The WebSphere Studio family of products currently has the following members
WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced
WebSphere Studio Application Developer
WebSphere Studio Application Developer Integration Edition
WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer
Now my problem is that I kinda get lost when I go to download the products from the IBM site.
Does the WAS-5.0 include all of those mentioned above?
Also what is the difference between the Application Server and Application server Express???
I want to start with html,JSP,servlets, EJB ....so the
WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced, and WebSphere Studio Application Developerand should suit me right??
Just about where to start ?? I already installed the WAS 5.0... what next??
Thanks a million!!!
Karen

Hello Karen,
Glad to help. You seem to be confusing a couple of WebSphere product lines.
To begin with WebSphere is simply the IBM brand of products.
That said, there is the WebSphere Application Server family (the runtime environment), and the WebSphere Studio family (the development environment).
Since you want to start developing and testing standard J2EE components, I would recommend the WebSphere Studio Application Developer v5.1.
Regards,

FYI... The thread titled WSAD vs Eclipse covers the basics. WSAD includes all the tools you'll need for J2EE development.
