    Question I'm a Java web dev newbie - where to start?

    I want to learn Java web development. What should I study first?

    JSP, servlets, and JDBC?

    Or - should I jump right into learning to use environments like Struts, JSF, Spring, Hibernate? Which of these would you recommend, if so?

    (I'm from an ASP.NET/C# background, but I want to start learning Java web development. I'm mostly interested in back end development.)

    Hi,
    Firstly welcome to our forum..:)

    And coming to your question of where to start from? Start from basic java like loops,Collection,Array and so on then you can go ahead with Advanced topics like JSF,Spring,Hibernate,etc...
    To finish sooner, take your own time....

    Separate them. First, get up to speed on basic Java stuff.

    Then use something like Netbeans to lead you into JSP/servlets. While JSP and servlets are technically separate, I've never used one without the other, so I consider them at least bound at the hip. Once you get the basics, JSP/servlets are simple, and behind them is just Java code.

    I'd do a little JDBC next, just to get the concepts, which will help with something like Hibernate.

    I personally see zero value in Struts, and less than that in J2EE.
