Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good JSP book. I currently program in Perl and PHP and would like to learn JSP. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Jim

Hi Jim. Welcome to the Ranch.

If you do not have a background in Java, I would highly recommend getting your head around basic Java programming before diving off into JSPs. Most JSP books will assume you have a basic grasp of the Java language and you will find many JSP concepts confusing without such a base.

That said, a great source of book information can be found at the JavaRanch Bunkhouse.

Much as that book has garnered high praise (though I haven't had a chance to review it myself yet), I'd be leary of using a book written in the "cookbook" style to learn a new technology.

Pro JSP 3rd Edition I thought was an excellent book.
 
It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
