This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Thanks to Kathy &Bert the book helped a lot. It really shows the path. I was new to java .Was programming in delphi for 4 years. Now shifting on to JAVA as a step wrote the SCJP. Good language in the OOP perspective. But those of you know about delphi component creation and front end layer creation is so easy with delphi. But the sad story is with portability(which is not there)but compatability(with different version of windows) Delphi is so made for windows that it a hell making application compatible with yearly versions release by the Microsoft. Extreme scenario will be when u r developing a three tier structure with the client side span over the entire WAN.(95 ,98,XP 2000, NT and what else could u name samea product windows) But beauty of delphi is it's components . Can anyone explain why such a thing has not developed much in JAVA. As i have seen AWT is removed from 1.4. I have heard of Java Beans, but is the growth significant there. I don't know much. From here i am onto IBM Websphere some one want to put some light on the path to it. Thomas
