i am totally confused when entered in J2EE. I am not understanding from where to Start. I searched in net but net confused me more. I am not understanding do i need to learn JSP and Servlet to learn spring frame work. I am computer Science Bsc Student, i have 7 months to finish my degree. I know the se. Is it possible to learn and prepare myself for j2ee job by learning Spring with knowledge of Java SE with out knowing the JSP and Servelt. Do i need to learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript at this time. My friends are learning PHP cause they thought J2ee is too vast and it is not possible to learn within this sort time. Experience guys please share yourself with. though i know this question may not have any exact answer and learning curve vary from person to person.
If you have any good resource and book suggestion please don't forget to share with me.
Another question a big problem with framework. So far seen, JSF and Spring are the most popular, which one should i chose.

Spring has both front end back end parts. You can definitely learn the back end parts (inversion of control, jdbc tempalte, etc) without knowing JSP/Servlets. I recommend you at least read a book about servlets/JSPs before going on to the front end part. The concepts are still important. I see more Spring use than JSF.

And yes, you should definitely learn HTML/CSS/JavaScript. I think this is more important than learning Spring because it is useful regardless of what server side language a company happens to use. After all, you have no way of knowing whether you first job will be in a Java based shop.
