Hi Ron, From the responses so far, you probably have enough reading for a couple of days. ;-) I thought I would add some other options. http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/ has Java, WebSphere and other zones and is a great source of articles and tutorials. As always, for IBM related material, redbooks are worth browsing: http://publib-b.boulder.ibm.com/Redbooks.nsf/Portals/WebSphere Also, Sun, while obviously not aimed at WebSphere, also has lots of portable material at: http://java.sun.com/ Some other suggestions: I noticed that your web site already uses servlets ( index.jsp ). I'd expect that team, whether or not they use WebSphere, would be a big help. Also, you might check around for AS/400 and Java user groups in your area. If your employer would spring for it, a mentor who could help with your first few projects would be very worthwhile in your position. Learning yourself by trial and error is often the best way to learn something, but it's also the longest.
