Please could you guys advise on a good book to get you started with J2EE. There seem to be hundreds of publications out there... so I thought I would rather come to the hub of it all, before spend much needed $$$.
I am not sure about an overall book for J2EE. But if you are a new comer to the EJB world you defintely wanna read Ed Roman's "Mastering EJB". The second edition will give an updated spec but even the older edition is fine. I think J2EE in a Nutshell from Oreilly Press is also a good place to start with.
