Java EE book / learning curve?


Hi all, I was pretty new to Java several months ago. However, I read and learned from this great book "Thinking in Java". It mainly covers materials under Java SE. Is there a similar book that covers materials under Java EE? I mean something very fundamental and good sample codes. Also, what is the learning curve in learning Java EE? Of course, I am not expecting to be pro in a few months period; I just want to get started and understand the concepts.  Any help is appreciated. Thanks, JAK.

I'd say the learning curve for Java EE is longer and steeper, simply because it encompasses all of Java SE plus lots of other topics.  You'll have to know how TCP/IP works, along with HTML and web development in general, relational databases, messaging, etc.    I don't know of a single book that does Java EE justice.  Perhaps there's something in the "Head First" series that covers it.  %

Thanks. This looks like a good starting point

Thanks for the reference.

Hi,    JEE has many components under it and if you are new to distributed applications then it could take around 2-3 months to get a good grip on all the components. You could look at http://lookupjava.googlepages.com, there are articles and tutorials available on jee components here. Hope this information helps.  Cheers! SA

Ok, then I would like to know which component EE got? If a know this then I could go ahead and buy one book for every component and then learn them. What I already have is a book about "servlets and JSP" from O'REILLY.   Which more components should I have a book about?
