I am not a novice in Java however my last application using servlet + JSP (MVC pattern) was a decade ago.

Now my skills in this area seems to be obsolete.

I will appreciate advices or even hints how to update them relative short time. I am not sure whether I should use a handbook teaching it from scratch.

I would prefer online trainings and articles. May be there is a good handbook which would be recommended.

I will be grateful receiving your advices

Igor,
A lot changed in this space in the last decade. I recommend reading something that teaches it from scratch. A few parts might sound familiar, but that is ok.

The Java EE tutorial is good if you want something online. I think you should use something book length whether it is the free tutorial or a real book like Core Servlets. There is too much information to learn it through scattered articles.

Head First Servlets and JSP --> This book taught me very fast. It explains it all in very easy terms 'everything' you need to know. I HIGHLY recommend you read this book.

Is there a third edition of this book that covers the latest JSP & Servlets specification? I will definitely but it times again! Worth the money!

I'm not completely sure actually. I have a PDF version of it and have the 2nd edition. That one was perfect and is still up to date. For the most part. It's by O'REILLY.

"For the most part". The book covers Servlets 2.5 and JSP 2.1; in other words, JEE 5. Current version of JEE is 7 with Servlets 3.1 and JSP 2.3.

That said, I think the book is certainly up-to-date enough to learn what any novice/intermediate needs to know at this point. JSP hasn't changed very much, and Servlets 3 has yet to enjoy deep penetration.

[Disclaimer: I was a technical reviewer for the book.]
