Hi all,I need to get hands-on experience in Java,J2EE. I have theoretical knowledge and an SCJP. Am currently preparing for WCD. Where can I find some sample projects so that I can learn how to build a small application to start with ??
Download the final releases of open source tools like Struts / Spring, they come bundled with sample applications.
Configure the development environment on your system ideally using Eclipse, My SQL & Tomcat etc. (All free and open source tools) then import and run the sample applications provided with Struts / Spring etc.
That way you'll not only have some hands on exercise of configuring and running J2EE applications, you can play around and go through the source code of these applications to quickly have hands on experience.
Also look for e-books---they are easy to find,cost no money and most importantly, you can study from many sources as project development alone from home can tend to be tedious. For ebooks, try searching intelligentedu.com for e-book blogs
