Learning J2EE

Posted on 2004-11-14

I have programmed in Java for a few years, but  have not used J2EE extensiely.
I would like to know what the easiest way to learn J2EE would be - given that I do not use Java at work anymore. I have started with the Sun tutorial but it is way too much, since the only time i get to read it is over the weekend.

Any suggestions on how to get  started with j2ee for a person who wants to enhance their resume?

    u could probably pick technologies one by one.
    you can start with may be servlets and JSP and go on to EJB

    for servlets and jsp i'll recommend "Head First Servlets and JSP" and for EJB "Head First EJB" both by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.

    Although these are not the only 2 technologies in J2EE but they r good to start with.

    Then all you need do is to actually play around with it. That is the way I learn everything.
