Hi,

I'm looking for a j2ee book with similar coverage as the sun j2ee tutorial servlets, beans, web services, deployment, security etc but a little bit lighter for reading on the train.  Is there a particularly good book anyone can recommend for getting up to speed quickly on this but with enough depth to be useful for commercial development.

Thanks.

"Professional EJB" from Wrox Press is algo good, although a bit old by now. Not sure if there is a newer version out.

Thanks, I've split the points for all suggestions because I'll take a look at them in more detail.  There doesn't seem to be a more recent version of Professional EJB. The serverside one, although free, requires a lot of personal info to register and I need a hardcopy.  I'll probably go for Head First EJB if Professional EJB seems dated.
