Need a book recommendation for J2EE

I'd like to learn more about design patterns and designing a maintainable infrastructure for a J2EE web application. Do you have any book recommendations?

I would recommend the Manning book on the Spring framework.

Best answer: all of the books in the fowler series are good but this one written by the man himself is a stand out.

Best answer: I also recommend Apress's Pro Spring 2.5. And Clean Code by Robert C. Martin, too.

BTW - Java EE is more current than J2EE.

Here is Sun's description:
The name of the Java platform for the enterprise has been simplified. Formerly, the platform was known as Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), and specific versions had "dot numbers" such as J2EE 1.4. The "2" is dropped from the name, as well as the dot number. So the latest version of the Java platform for the enterprise is Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (Java EE 5).
