Head First Servlets And JSP by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates
This book will get you way up to speed on the technology you’ll know it so well, in fact, that you can pass the brand new J2EE 1.5 exam. If that’s what you want to do, that is. Maybe you don’t care about the exam, but need to use servlets and JSPs in your next project. You’re working on a deadline. You’re over the legal limit for caffeine. You can’t waste your time with a book that makes sense only AFTER you’re an expert (or worse, one that puts you to sleep).
Learn how to write servlets and JSPs, what makes a web container tick (and what ticks it off), how to use JSP’s Expression Language (EL for short), and how to write deployment descriptors for your web applications. Master the c:out tag, and get a handle on exactly what’s changed since the older J2EE 1.4 exam. You don’t just pass the new J2EE 1.5 SCWCD exam, you’ll understand this stuff and put it to work immediately.
Head First Servlets and JSP doesn’t just give you a bunch of facts to memorize; it drives knowledge straight into your brain. You’ll interact with servlets and JSPs in ways that help you learn quickly and deeply. And when you’re through with the book, you can take a brand-new mock exam, created specifically to simulate the real test-taking experience.
Head First EJB by Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates
If you’ve read Head First Java, you know what to expect – the unexpected! If not, get ready to engage your mind. Head First EJB applies the latest learning theory to drive knowledge straight into your brain (without any sharp instruments). You’ll interact with the material in unusual ways to learn more deeply and more quickly, and most importantly – use what you learn.
Building business components with EJB is one of the most popular uses of Java, but the SCBCD exam is scary. We know – we helped write it. Guilt-ridden over the toughness of the test, we thought the least we could do is offer a stimulating way to pass it, and all for the cost of just three extra-large pizzas and a six-pack.

Java Persistence API in EJB 3 for Professionals, (Book/CD-Rom) by Sharanam Shah, Vaishali Shah
Designed for beginners and intermediate developers, this book teaches JPA from the ground up with an aim to get the reader up to speed with JPA as quickly as possible. It delves deeply into the core of the JPA, providing a sound understanding of the components that make up the framework and the way they interact with each other. This book uses the learning by doing pattern with a lot of ready-to-use examples. This pattern has proven to be the best approach for learning a new technology. Most [if not all] of the concepts that you will find in this book are demonstrated using well described and easy to understand examples, yet sophisticated enough to demonstrate JPA in a real-world context.
