hi friends,

i m new to java though have sufficient develpoment experience in other languages. i picked up java and a friend of mine told me that if you want to learn any technology fast start making a project on it and you will explore things faster. Adhering to his advice i started making a library project on java with postgres as backend. I m using netbeans. After half the project, i realize that my concepts on java and oops have not grown and i am just writing usable code in the netbeans defined events with select and insert queries and nothing else.
To learn real java should i stop using netbeans and write the code from scratch?
Another friend of mine told me that java is meant for internet applications and you should not make desktop applications on it. ? is it so. i think to convert my library project into internet based application, the only thing would be that on desktop it wud run on explorer on tomcat or jboss. What are your suggestions.
Thirdly kindly suggest me some good books so that i can graduate faster from core java to jsp to ejb to j2ee. Recently i have ordered murach's series as it appears that they are faster and professional. Also kindly suggest the books for clearing SCJA. In india we cant find cameron mckenzie examscam.

I hope that your valuable answers to this thread wud benefit many.

Again, please do not cross-post. People are less likely to take the time to respond when they find the same question has already been answered in another forum. Please continue this discussion under this duplicate.

(Note: This was moved from SCJA.)
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
