I am Currently Preparing for SCJP and will complete it within 3 months.
I have done BSC CompSci. I have no work Experience in the field of Software Development, So looking forward to step in Development field.

I am very confused how do I go along with Java as we all know Java is moving at an tremendous Pace.In each new release there are loads of new features emerging out.New Techniques and Services are coming out every now and then.

As a Novie in the world of Java, can any one suggest me the proper guide lines or path how do we stay back to back with Java.

Also Do let me know, List all the services and technologies (Related to or Not Related to Java) one should know if he/she plans to go ahead with Java.
for eg. Java Beans, Struts, UML etc

Guide lines would be very helpful...

Hi Rinav Gangar welcome to Javaranch,

Also Do let me know, List all the services and technologies (Related to or Not Related to Java) one should know if he/she plans to go ahead with Java.
for eg. Java Beans, Struts, UML etc


first learn the language and then you can think of related technologies like Struts, its not that easy, because you should know servlet, Jsps before moving on to struts. Same is applicable to others also.


Hope this helps

Learn good programming technique, learn how to design, how to refactor code, how to do test driven development.

These are transferable skills, you can learn the additional technologies servlets, EJB's Jax-ws etc along with teh various frame works as and when you need them.

MAster being a good developer, knowing how to write clear understandable code is more valuable then know half a dozen frameworks, in my opinion.
