I am very new to Servlets and JSP. Can somebody please suggest me a good and simple to understand book for studying Servlets? I am planning to use Weblogic server. Let me know if there are any online tutorials/books available to view/download.

Core Servlets and JSP, and More Servlets and JSp, both by Marty Hall are very good books. The first edition of Core Servlets is available online.



Core servlets

Another very good one, even though it's geared towards the exam is Heads First servlet & JSP.

Thanks. That was very helpful. What do you think about "Head First" by Bert Bates and Sierra (if you know about)?

Hello Alex,

The Head First series is regarding this subject one of the best books I have ever seen.

Ronald

But HF books take time because you can't leave anything in between, you have to read it sequentially to get most out of it.
It is just my opinion.

HF S&JSP is a great resource, especially fi you are new to the technology. I would highly recommend it.

Yes, you do have to read all of it, not just parts, but you should really do that regardless of the book. And the HF is such an easy, enjoyable read, this shouldn't be a problem.

I went thru a few chapters of some of the books for Servlets including CoreServlets and HF. What I like the most is HF.

Hi,

My openion is to go with HFSJ. Thats really a good resource and at the same time you may have knowledge of Servlets and JSP both.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
