This is my first post at JavaRanch because my career took a shift towards JAVA EE Dev just today .. Hopefully it will turn out to be a
healthy move as for as my career is concerned. I am completely clueless as to where do i start and what better forum to post this qn
than this one right here. I am a huge fan of Head First books and I do own quite a few of them. Some advice would be appreciated here..
1. Kindly list in order the fundamental pre-requisite studies that need to be done to enter the domain of Java EE based web Applications ??
2. Also it would be really helpful if i could get an insightful answer into the above mentioned question as pertaining to the year of 2015 ??
3. I have beginner level knowledge in the following topics via my education and work experience at Cognizant(Pretty Decent IT Firm)...
-->> Core Java , OOPS concepts , Servlets , JSP , OSGi Framework . (Beginner level in all of these)
4. Should i update my knowledge in these streams or should I move on to cloud based technologies or big data or mobile app development to
have a better carrer as a future developer of applications. I am completely open to any stream as long as it involves making new things.
Have you been a programmer before? If I understand your situation, I would just wait until I got an assignment to really dig in, because who knows what the assignment might be. In the meantime I'd read up on what I thought the assignment might require. I'd also make sure I could do basic things like get an application running on a server. Good luck and congratulations.
