Hi,

I am a Java/JEE engineer and have 3 years of exp with JSP, Servlets, EJB2.0 EJB3.0 JDBC, JMS, XML, jaxb, castor, HTML, css, javascript, jboss, eclipse, jbuilder etc. Presently I am unemployed and actively looking for a job.

I wanted to get some advice on how to quickly learn new technologies like GWT, Hibernate, Spring 3.0 Struts2.0 and JS libraries like Jquery, EX , Jasper Reports, etc. I have learnt Hibernate, Spring2.0 and Web services by reading some books and doing small prototype projects on my own.

Q1) What I am really interested in knowing is how to quickly learn new technologies, I know there are no short cuts to anything and the answer to this question may vary from one individual to another as everyone has a different style of learning. But I just wanted to get the opinion from the experts on this and if they can provide some useful points which should be kept in mind when learning something new.

Thanks

I would suggest whatever you know is more than enough to get you job. So first get into job, then think of learning new. Until you do not get job, you can continue learning, but focus on getting into job. Learning something new is not difficult when you have real project experience.

-- I start by learning the core concepts (from the net) and then working on a simple tutorial (from the net) to get a big picture.

-- Then will find ways to apply them in real projects.
