I am starting out with Tomcat and servlet programming.

Can you suggest me an appropriate book in this scenario

Some books that I have read good reviews are

Core Servlets by Marty Hall
Servlets Programming by Jason Hunter
Servlets by Goodwill
Also I have the servlet specifications to complement. Any other book that you would suggest please let me know.
Again I am starting out with Tomcat on windows and servlet programming and aim is to be able to build simple servlets and jsp code as well.

I've read Marty Hall's book and I wish I had it when I was starting with servlets.

Is the book generic, as I have a windows install of Tomcat

JavaServer Pages , 3rd edition (Oreilly).
This is a solid book about JSP, good examples, great explainations.
It talks about servlets (but not as a primary subject).
Then get :
JSP & Servlets Cookbook (Oreilly), and learn some tricks (JAAS, media ..) .
MHO...

From memory (I'm using it at work so I don't have it with me) it covers Windows and Linux installations of Tomcat, Resin and another common server. All examples are covered in all three when they work differently.

I should also point out that the Head First books are very popular, but I haven't read HFS so I can't really say about this one. Their HF Design Patterns book is one of the best I've read, so I'll recommend that one anyway
