As a Unix administrator you can avoid supporting much of the applications that run on your servers and contain yourself with just the Unix aspects, but as I personally feel the Unix admin role itself is diminishing (no networking, less volume manager stuff, etc) you have to obtain additional skills, my thoughts are that you need to start to look after some of the applications that run on a Unix server i.e. Java EE Application Servers (Apache/Tomcat, JBoss AS 5, etc) and how they work in the bigger picture, its still kind of admin work and the script programming has been replaced with HTML, JSP and Java.
The following document describes how JSP, Servlets and Web Services work, this will be a basic introduction but hopefully it will expand beyond a basic guide as I become more involved and experienced. The below will also help you in taking the SCWCD for Java EE 1.5 exam.
Some of the code will requires a little bit of Java knowledge, so for a refresher or help take a look at my Java web page.
The Documents have been comprised of reading the following books and real world experience, if you are new to JSP, Servlets and Web Services, I highly recommend that you should purchase these books as they contain far more information than this web site contains and of course the Internet contains all the documentation you will ever need.
Please feel free to email me any constructive criticism you have with the site as any additional knowledge or mistakes that I have made would be most welcomed.

|HeadFirst Servlets and JSP - Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates
||When I first got this book I was surprised on how many pictures and diagrams were in the book, I was a bit skeptical at first but as I progressed through the book I thought this is an excellent way to learn, this book highlights the saying "a pictures paints a thousands words", I highly recommend these and any of the other Head First Books of which i have many, especially if you are a beginner in the subject.
