The best thing i would think is to get a Java work.
Until then, why don't you prepare for SCJD?
which not only helps you keep Java shiny, but also make it better.

Show your employer the superiority of JSPs versus ASPs... :-)

Hi
My opinion, it is not in the least bit naughty to compare the two. JSP/Servlet solutions are much more flexible, has better code reuse (OOD), and out performs ASP in speed of execution.
Add this to the fact that you need a hardware solution if you want to run ASP on a load balanced server with multiple tiers, even with MTS, which you don't in Java, and you will see that JSp/Servlets are the way to go for high end systems.
I have been educating the decision makers at my current employer for the last 6 months and after all our testing and protypes, the company is now shifting into the Java market and away from the ASP/"VB dll" solution.
P.S. At my last check VB was single threaded... talk about a bottleneck.
Have fun.

but then
isnt it easier to code in asp?
doesnt msdn have a wealth info on asp than what sun has on jsp?
is there any way to run java iis. (AFAIK there is nothing)?
where do u turn for support when jsp fails?
is there a a good book on jsp(like thinking in java)?
we have only some tutorials in gamelan, javaboutique, jdc, etc., is there a site where v can get an in-depth analysis of jsp and how to use in windows/unix environment?
we all know java is a bit slower than any other language. (my opinion and not based on any test results).
i am not trying to argue here. the above are just my concerns. i am learning c++ now. i realise now how easy it is to learn and use java. only that i am not able to get around to start using jsp as i dont seem to get the starting point.
thanks,

J:
JSP is a new technology and as such (and IMO) one cannot expect at this moment for a lot of information to be available for the asking. I myself feel lucky to be on the "ground floor" on this technology where I work. One is expected to learn a lot by oneself. But not to worry, Sun has a decent tutorial on JSPs which I posted today about, and the (nearly 600 pages) book that I recommend (there are not that many published yet) is:
Web Development with JavaServer Pages by by Duane K. Fields and Mark A. Kolb .

Of course you must install Tomcat - Jakarta in your home PC to play around with the technology (Servlets and JSPs).
Finally, did you say that you are learning C++ even after learning Java?
That's not too good Karma is it?! (JOKE!)

If you want to run Java in IIS, you need to install a Java Server like ServletExec.
