Hi,
I am learning java language. I am aware of C++, VB etc. I want to learn on how to develop web appl in java. All these years m developing appl for PC client-server (VB/SQL Server). I know that MS provides ASP/ASP.Net as the eqvalent platform for the same.

I have purchased Beginning JSP (Wrox pub) that am going through. Am unable to develop/design the frontend as I have done all these years using MS Visual Studio. Am sure there are something eqvalent for Java platform. Can anyone help me with a good book that helps me develop web applications.

Thanks in advance.
Shouvik.

Shouvik Biswas,

Welcome to Java Ranch.
There are several plugins to the Eclipse IDE for developing JSP.
Also, Sun distributes the NetBeans IDE, which has support for JSP, for free.

Personally, I recommend learning the basics of JSP and servlet programming without an IDE. Once you're able to build, compile, and deploy basic web applications using a text editor, javac, and a container such as Tomcat, then, you might want to evaluate the many IDEs available to Java programmers to see if one can make your development faster or easier.

Learning this way frees you from depending on any particular IDE and, more importantly, insures that you are equipped with the knowledge necessary to debug a an application that has gone into a production environment on a server that doesn't have an IDE installed.
