I am a s/w developer and was away from Java for 3 long years(doing some SQL server stuff)...
I have done some coding(for 1yr) on Java,JSP,Servlet using 1.4(before learning/moving to SQL server).
Now, I am returning to Java and want to get into the Java mood ASAP!!!
I know there is no shortcut, sometimes you need to learn it on hard way.
What I am asking, is there any resource/challengs/problems available on Internet...like small programs...I want to resolve/write them by myself and by which I can hone my skills on core Java as well as J2EE?
What do you say?? I'm looking forward to it! Thanks!!
welcome to the ranch!
java mood, huh ? sounds great!
Well, you'll be pleased to know that enterprise java development has become more agile during the past few years.
You can start with what you were doing earlier, but try to research and look around for frameworks, which are plentiful in the java world, to fit your web app. development needs.
Even in the coding stuff, not much has changed in the syntax after java 5, but you can definitely look around for scripting languages that run on JVM, and have continued to become popular over this period of time.
thanks guys! Yesterday I borrowed a SCJP book of Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates from one of my friends. I just started reading it and I'm impressed. Frankly speaking...I was looking for this kinda stuff...precise,solid and in-depth!!
