Can anyone recommend books on JSP for beginners with plenty of code examples of real life applications that one can play around with in their own code?

My favorite: More Servlets and JavaServer Pages by Marty Hall. It covers the JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.3 specifications -- an excellent book.
The prequel is Core Servlets and Java Server Pages also by Marty Hall, covers the JSP 1.1 and Servlet 2.2 specifications, it's actually available online in PDF form on CoreServlets.com. Its a little dated, but an excellent book.

Thanks Jessica. I�ve just passed my SCJP yesterday and I want to write a couple of web sites using JSP amongst other things - (basically I'm trying to get a port-folio together in order to get a job). Any other tips as to what type of site / functionality I should build baring in mind I'm very green.

Manning's Web Development with JavaServerPages by Fields and Kolb is outstanding.

Yes, but make sure you get the newest 2nd edition of "Web Development with JavaServerPages"(new review in the bunkhouse pending).

This is not meant to be a plug, but when you've got the JSP basics covered, check out some of the tag library stuff (also know as JSP tag extensions). These reusable components really do help you build more readable and maintainable systems which (IMHO of course) is a definite plus-point for getting a job.
Good luck with the learning, and if there is anything that we can all help you with, you know where to find us.
Cheers
Simon

Thanks everyone for the book suggestions.
Can anyone perhaps point me at a URL that uses JSP, XML so I can get a snapshot of the type of web apps that are out there. Also if someone could at least point me in the right direction as to a suitable app that I can develop (nothing too complicated, but then again, something that a future boss would sit up and look at). I�m very green, but you�ve got to start somewhere haven�t you?
