Hello All,
I am into java programming for three years, Have worked mostly on GUI and for some time on a JSP project.

I want to get into Java EE as quickly as possible. I looked at few books, it doesnot look something hard but the Java EE books ask for too much reading which will take me long time to go through.

Based on my experience can anybody suggest a concise book/tutorial or Best is a Video tutorial which can get me on track fast.

Many Thanks,
Alain

Alain,
JEE is a big topic - it takes time to learn it well! You could read a high level article that tells you the different pieces (servlet, JSP, EJB, etc) - I suspect you already know that though.

If you are in a hurry, you might want to start with a smaller piece of JEE. For example, the component/packaging model.

Thanks Jeanne,
Though the keywords you gave, got me some useful results on searching the web,

But... What I am looking for is a recommendation for a good concise book or an instructional tutorial. I can clear this with an example: I bought book on Advanced java by Dietal&Dietal, this book give unnecessarily huge examples to introduce to a concept, which could be necessary for a new student to the language, though, But it is too much time consuming for me. These guys forces one to learn other concepts before one learns the actual one. Exampel form the book: for learning RMI they forces one to be familier with swing GUI concepts(not a problem for me, just an example) and forces to learn how to open streams on webpages, whereas a small example and and explaination can come under 2-3 pages. This happens throughout the book making it 7 pound dumbell.

I don't want to waste my money and time on trying something like that again.

please give me a recommendation.

Thanks again,
Alain.

Maybe read Head First Servlets & JSP, get a firm grip of this part of JavaEE, and then read EJB 3 in Action, to get some knowledge of EJBs. It also introduces some other concepts like JNDI, resource injection and so on. When you finish, you should have enough knowledge to know for yourself what you need to scrutinize in more detail.
