Hi guys!
I am studying JSP 2.0 (Apress: JSP from Novice to Professional) and I would like to know if there is a book or a web-site where I can get simple projects or assignments to practice what I am studying, something like "homework".

Thank you in advance!
Giovanni

I'd start with the J2EE 1.4 Tutorial.

http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/docs/tutorial/doc/

It also has sample code you can download.

Its server specific and a bit complex for beginners. Check out the bunk house for books and reviews. You can refer to Tomcat examples or http://simple.souther.us (Its is from one of our rancher, Ben Souther).
Thanks Ben.

Thank you!

I have found this http://simple.souther.us/ very interesting, the Sun J2EE tutorial is too complex for me right now: I have read something about the J2EE architecture and I figured it would have been better/easier for me to start from JSP, JSTL and then Servlets.

My idea is to look for assignments, like those you have to do at the university, small projects just to prove you understood not only the syntax but also how to use it to create something concrete.

If you guy know any public link to universities and similia, I would really appreciate!

Thank you again!
Giovanni :-)

Almost every text book has exercises at the end of each chapter.
Which ones have you looked at?

I am studying from Beginning JSP from Novice to Professional.
It has simple pages I am using to grasp the basic concepts, but I would rather like something like "I have these specifications, or this problem...solve it using JSP and whatever..."
I am looking for a job in the US, my problems are my visa status and the lack of experience in the industry (in spite of my Masters Degree in Computer Science and Telecommunications!). The SCJP has been the first step to enhance my resume, J2EE is the second (I started from JSP).
Eventually, during an interview, I need to prove some kind of experience programming, writing my own code to solve problems, not only "I studied this and that...I read the examples...I know this in theory but I have never used it to code...".
I don't know if this makes any sense...

Thanks again
Giovanni

Another option is to search for OpenSource projects that need a hand (or start one). Even if you never get line of code committed, you'll learn a lot by reading other people's JSP/Servlet code (sometimes, you'll learn what not to do) and by trying to fix bugs.

Thanks for your tip!
I actually helped in the development of a graphical library during my final project when I was in Italy; the project started on sourceforge.

I'll try to go back to that web site and see if they need help!

Have a great afternoon!
Giovanni
