Hi all,

So I fell for the old bait and switch.. My company hired me as a Java developer role but I've been assigned testing work related to mostly XML.
I was told that the work would be 80% Java programming, 10% XML and 10% research. But 3 Sprints into the project (we have 2 week sprints), I find that it's 90% XML files and 10% Java.

I fear I will lose my edge as a Java dev since I am not even programming at work. How do I maintain and upgrade my Java skills while doing a testing job at work?

Enrolling in classes at local universities will help you learn as well as help your boss/coworkers take you seriously about learning new technologies.
I know it's an expensive way to learn but hey, you might be able to convince your boss to chip in.

This might be tough if you're a contractor. Maybe it's a good idea to find a full time engagement vs contract work? (I hated contract jobs that I did, always felt like an outsider)

@<Anbarasu Aladiyan> That's an awesome explaination! Helped me brush up my concepts even though I've been writing in Java for some time now.
Good job!

You are quite correct to state that javabeans need not be used everywhere. Your example is a good illustration of when not to use a javabean in a JSP.
That being said, as applications become bigger and business logic grows more complex then javabeans are a good option.

Here's what Sun says about this (take it away Ora-Sun) : <http://java.sun.com/j2ee/tutorial/1_3-fcs/doc/JSPBeans3.html#62132>;
