I have recently passed my SCWCD exam and I want to re-enforce what I have learned, by writing some code. In preparation for my first job (whenever I get one), should I be spending my time, one: installing Tomcat and writing code at the command line the way Sierra and Bates do in "Head First Servlets and JSPs", or two: learn the web-app features of NetBeans 6.1, or three: something else. All opinions are welcome.

All opinions are welcome.

You should have done that when studying for the exam. That's my opinion

Try to contribute to an open-source project where you can apply what you learnt. This will look good on your resume as well.


-- You can learn from and enhance your coding skills by looking at others� code.
-- You can get feedback from others on your code.
-- You can enhance your ability to understand problems and develop effective solutions for it.
-- You can proudly mention your contribution on your resume.

If you are still not convinced, go to http://seeker.dice.com/jobsearch and search for "open source".


Where do I look for open-source projects?

-- http://www.sourceforge.net/
-- http://dev.java.net/
-- http://jakarta.apache.org/
-- http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/views/java/projects.jsp
-- http://www.google.co.in/search?q=Apache+Java+projects
