Default General Help

I am to write a program that tracks statistics and provides graphical representations. Data is entered via the web and charts viewed over the web. I would be grateful for any guidance as to the best books to read, from a novice point of view, to get me started.The language to be used must be Java, Many Thanks!:)

For learning Java from scratch, I found that Beginning Java2 (http://www.wrox.com/books/0764543652.shtml) by Ivor Horton had all I needed. Although he went into the maths a little too much, it looks as though that shouldn't be a problem for you. :)

To put things on the web using Java, you would probably need to also learn JSP (Java Server Pages). I haven't read any books on this myself, so I can't recommend anything definitive, but JavaServer Pages 2nd Edition (http://safari.oreilly.com/?XmlId=0-596-00317-X) looks quite a good bet.

To show charts or graphs on a web browser using Java would be easily done in Applets
