For advanced J2EE, you may consider several books:

Head First EJB: Although it is for SCBCD exam, the book uses *easy-to-understand* manner to introduce EJB. Even you dont have much EJB knowledge, you will find it useful.

Enterprise Java Bean 3rd/4th edition: It is a complete reference.

Core Servlets and JSP: It covers all basic knowledge, in addition to some advanced features of Servlets and JSP.

J2EE Web Services: It covers all mandatory knowledge for Java Web Services.

Hope this help.

Nick

To get some hands-on experience as part of my SCBD cert effort (successful last January), I read the Monson-Haefel book,which comes with a workbook and examples prepared for Jboss. The book, workbook and Jboss are available free on the net. Jboss comes with built-in db, so there's no need spend time installing an independent db.

For EJBs, I like Kevin Boone's book Applied Enterprise JavaBeans Technology.

For servlets and JSP, I like Marty Hall's Core Servlets and JSP book.

Hi Sathish,

I assume you're not posting this in relation to the J2EE: The Big Picture book promotion this week, but if you are, that book could give you a solid basis for the, well, big picture. Containers, architecture, EJBs and JSPs, container services, etc.

If you want to be in the drawing for the free book, go ahead and post another question about the book, or just repost this making it clear it's about the book. (I assume this is in acordance with the JavaRanch rules.)

"J2EE: The Big Picture" by Solveig Haugland, Mark Cade, and Anthony Orapallo
Knowledge without coding.
Understanding without boredom.
And occasional references to badgers.
