Greetings!

I'm a developer with extensive background in Perl, C, Oracle and OBIEE. However I've never had to deal with Java. My boss wants me to work on some Java/Struts project and wants to send me to training.

I wonder if anyone could advice me:

First - what exactly classes I should take. I would assume I would have to take some Java for beginners class, and then a Spruts class?

And second - if anyone can recommend a training facility in DC/VA/MD area.

All suggestions appreciated. Thank you!

Welcome to the ranch!

You'll find that Java is more like C than Perl. Java will round out your programming knowledge nicely.

If you'd like to learn Java in a classroom setting, my advice is to look into Java programming classes at your local community college.

If you like to learn from books, I would recommend either Learning Java or Head First Java.

If you like online tutorials, you can look at Oracle's Java tutorials.

And I bet other people have a bunch of suggestions, too. Good luck!

Hi Dimitry Faynerman,

I think you should learn Java basics first, then Java web (JSP/Servlet), and finally to Struts. That's because Struts is depending on Java EE technologies like Servlet and JSP.

Thank you for your replies, guys. I wonder if you recommend instructor-lead training, because my boss wants to send me to the classroom training.

Not many clients using Struts any more. But learning core java and then J2EE then framework like struts, spring etc is a good idea with some ORM tool like hibernate. Lot of online , class room training available if you search on google based on the budget you can spend.

thanks again. Well, I searched for classes, and I guess I'm a bit overwhelmed. Lots of different Java-related topics, and I'm not sure which ones I need.
Let's say, for example, these two sites:

http://www.onlc.com/Java-programming-training-classes.htm
http://www.hott-java-certification.com/States/Virginia-VA.htm

Which courses do you think would be the best fit for me?

Yep, these look great. And what about Spruts? Would they cover it in one of those classes, or I have to find yet another training?

I think it will be harder to find a class on Struts. Maybe a book, like Struts 2 In Action. But take a class on Java EE first.

You mean I would need to take yet another class for EE, like this one http://www.traininghott.com/Courses/Java-Web-Application-Development-Training-Course.htm
Or EE stuff would already be part of this one http://www.hott-java-certification.com/Courses/Java-Programming-Training-Course.htm that we discussed before?

This would be a question to ask the people who are giving the classes.
