I would recommend that you look at the newer Technology JSF (Java Server Faces) which sits
on top of JSP.   This is easier to use and will probably be the future.

Hello Claudio.  Since you are just starting to learn, I would get the 
latest Java SDK (5.0) and download Tomcat 5.5.12 instead.  I don't see 
any reason to use the older 5.0.28.

I'm starting also--the book I'm currently going through is Beginning 
JavaServer Pages[1] to learn about JSP's, so far, through page 108, it's 
been pretty helpful for me. I'm glad I got it, although some of the 
Amazon reviews for it have not been the best (avg. 3.5/5 stars).

I would forget about EJB until you're fully comfortable with Servlets, 
JSP, JavaScript, CSS, etc.  You may never need to work with EJB's anyway 
(and Tomcat doesn't support them.)


PS:  What does "PD" mean?  ;-)
