Java Web Development

I am new to web development.
Please suggest java books for beginners to get started into web development using Java.
It would be good if the book guides me through step by step by process of setting up my environment and get started with web application development with an example project.

Thanks for you help in advance.

Try this awesome and free book:


it is about Grails framework (www.grails.org)

Good luck.
http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/community/tutorials/BuildJ2EEWebApp/BuildJ2EEWebApp.html is an option :)

http://java.sun.com/javaee/6/docs/firstcup/doc/ is a good starting point - it does lead you through setting up your first project and gives you all the needed background.  (http://java.sun.com/javaee/6/docs/firstcup/doc/firstcup.pdf if you prefer it as a PDF). Followed by http://java.sun.com/javaee/6/docs/tutorial/doc/ :)

Do you already know Java or do you also just start with Java now?
