Good way to learn java is to answer questions on stackoverflow and coderanch. This will teach you right things and much quicker than a book.

Solving others problems is difficult

Depends on where. Some companies don't require a degree.

That is the best way to learn. Technologies & frameworks are growing rapidly and one needs to keep learning continuously.

arulk,
on the CS building at my university there was a saying. "those who profess to teach must never cease to learn." i liked that, and its true, especially at the pace we change at today
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
