Hi Ranchers,
I m currently studying servlets and found Jason Hunter's Java Servlet Programming from O'Reilly the best...not to becompared really! For beginners, i think Core Servlet & JSP Programming is not bad. I also baught O'Reilly's Java Server Pages & Wrox's Porfessional JSP as i 'll start studying JSP within a week. So i wanna know which JSP book did u like most so that i can modify my study plan?

Because Servlets and JSP isn't a topic you can fully grasp when you read the first time about it I found it useful to read several books about this topic: My first book was also the one from O'Reilly ("Java Servlet Programming"), then i read "Core Servlets and JSP" from Sun and "Advanced Java Server Pages" also from Sun. Recently i also borrowed "Web Development with Java Server Pages" from Manning Publishing.
I have to say, that there are many books for java and advanced java books out there and - gladly - nearly every book is worth a read. Expecially O'Reilly, Sun and Wrox books are really good. You could buy any of them without having to consult book reviews.
Since you already have a good understanding (with the stuff you read) i'd definitly recommend you "Advanced Java Server Pages" (ISBN: 0130307041), which introduces you into some advanced topics and some design aspects of servlet and jsp programming. The topics covered there show you, how servlets and jsp are (or how they can be) actually applied in business.
A second title i can recommend you is "Core J2EE Patterns".

Hi Ashik,
u may have heard of me from anis.. neway, i m also doing JSP and servlets.. but i m concentrating on JSP most as it has got more preference than servlet and it's really a powerful tool for developing web.. it has got so many extra features like Custom tags.. bean supports and all.. it's really good to follow the Wrox book.. it's really helpful to learn JSP in depth.. neway, Best of luck.. heard of u several times from Anis.. as he's my mate here.. carry on..
Pranit..

I am using Speicial Edition Using JAVA SERVER PAGES AND SERVLETS from QUE, by Mark Wutka.
It is a good book which covers both technologies..
