For anyone who has -been following my posts....I finally passed! (3rd try)....it was a huge relief, and I want to thank everyone here for all their support and encouragement. Also, JQ+ was definitely worth the small price.......I don't know about everyone, but I can't just read pages and pages of Java....and JQ+ stimulates the entire mental process.
Unfortuantely, I was laid off from my dot-com, so can anyone suggest a way to get some REAL coding experience?

Also.....I need a job!!!(Join the club, huh?) I would appreciate any advice or experiences from others during this recess......uh, I mean, 'economic downturn.' What is the future of Java? Job prospects? Entry level pipeline?
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!!

Congrats On Passing Roger!!!
Sorry to hear you were laid off..
Dont get down, there are jobs out there. Mkae sure you target your companies and network as much as you can. Entry level is a little dry right now, but shouwing an effort and interest really helps. Go to some User groups, creat some applications it all counts and keep talking to people and letting them know what you want to do.
Cold calling is good also...Ask for career advice
Congrats again...great work

Congrats Roger! As for opportunites, they are loads out there, you just have to take your Java skills to the next level. Get a good J2EE book and start reading and doing examples, EJB's (Enterprise JavaBeans) are what is hot right now with JNDI and application servers. JSP and servlets are also important and are easy to learn, you could score a job pretty quickly with these skills. I learned just by reading and doing examples, right now I am reading the JMX (Java Management Extensions) spec and once you learn one new technology in Java, the others just keep rolling in. Also, I started SCJD which will get you well on your way, good luck!

Great job, Roger! If you had the determination to take the test three times, you have the determination to accomplish anything.
