I have finished studying HFJ and I'm wondering what book I should tackle next. I basically want to expand my knowledge in java and have a "working knowledge" in it and maybe contribute to open-source as well soon. I have basic knowledge in C++, VB.net, and HTML/CSS if that matters..

Understanding design patterns will help in lots of circumstances (I've heard HF Design Patterns is good ).

What kind of applications are you interested in? J2EE - big server stuff? Small apps. on phones?

You might also hang out a bit in the OO, Patterns forum.

hth,

Bert

I guess for now I would have to say desktop applications.

Try exploring on Java FX, Android and some Swing components.
