I subscribe to Java Developers Journal, and even though it's slowly getting better, it's still poor compared with (say) Linux Journal. The articles tend to be more concerned with the "business" of Java (who's running what corporation, what companies heve been bought up, which products are being released etc.) with a relatively small amount of hardcore technical stuff.
I tried to subscribe to some other Java magazine, but heard nothing at all from them, even though, as far as I can tell, the magazine still exists.

I like the following in order of 'preference' with fav being first.
Java Pro ( )
- There are like 2-3 amazing articles a month, very fresh ideas and the 'ask the java pro' section by Robert Savarese is very insightful.
Java Developers Journal
- Like the previous post said, it's more 'business of java, BUT, they do tend to do 'Making an EJB Java app for the real World' that can run 5-6 months. They did an online airline 'webfront' and it was incredible in showing me alot about what I know about Servlets, JSP, and EJB stuff.
Java Report
- I just got into this one because an instructor as a training center I frequent clained it was great, so far I like it, but I find the useful 'code' techniques limited. PS, the instructor writes for O'Reilly and really 'knows his stuff'.
Other 'Java Peripheral' Magazines.
Bruce Eckels Java Mailing List.
- He's the guy who wrote Thinking in C++ and Thinking in Java, two GREAT books.
XML Journal
- Same company that does Java DEvelopers Journal. Expect the same review.
XML Magazine (quarterly)
Very very good book on ho XML works and where to use it.
I included the XML books as they tie in nicely with JAva Web solutions.
And hey I never used XML wth any other language other than Java.
Tally ho...
