    Hello java_beginner,

    2 books I would recommend are these:

    Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam

    Web Development with Java: Using Hibernate, JSPs and Servlets

    They cover everything you need to know to get started in the world of JSP. Lots of people talk about the 'Head First' books. If you are not thinking about taking the exam, the 2nd book would probably be better.
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.

    There is also Concurrency in Java, a good book to read if you do anything else besides web development
