This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
My advice: ignore web services until you have a good grasp of Java fundamentals. You're going to get nowhere fast if you try to write advanced code before you have a basic understanding of the language.
My first goal is to learn Java and then to go for Web services. Currently, I am located in Bangalore and looking for some institute where I can take up Java. If any of you know some institute please let me know. I have recently moved to Bangalore, so I am not much aware of the city.
