Hi experts, Any good book suggestion to learn Servlet and JSP in details?

I found two books

1.Head First Servlets and JSP, 2nd Edition,

2. Java Servlet Programming
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
By: Jason Hunter

I really don't like Head First Books because it give me the feel of kindergarten. What about the book of O'Reilly Media? any more suggestion?

Thanks in advance

Some of the most important things in life, you learn in kindergarten.

And to save yourself and others some grief later, don't use scriptlets in your JSPs. Books that have lots of scriptlets in their examples are probably dated so you may want to avoid those.

Hi Junilu,
thanks for taking time to reply. Does you comment means Head First series is better?
am not in a discussion of what kindergarten can provide. I am in search of a good book and that was my opinion about Head First books.

To elaborate on what Junilu said: the O'Reilly book is from 2001 - web app development has changed significantly since then, so I think that would not be a good way to start learning.

The Head First approach is not for everyone, but -having been a tech reviewer of that particular one- I can say that I think it works well in that book (probably elsewhere as well, but I haven't seen any others).

I Suggest Head First book, because of its high picture content , since picture are more easier to understand than to study a page of paragraph in text.
