I have cleared SCJP 1.4 and SCWCD 1.4 recently.I did some codding practice when i was clearing SCJP 1.4.
But could not do much of codding practice when i gave my SCWCD 1.4 exam(Just did the examples in HFSJ).
I am not from a software background.
I believe there are lots of tutorials and codes available online which help you develope some applications.
I need some experience in developing web based applications.
Can anyone please help me as to whats the best way to go about it. If you can suggest some links it would be very helpfull
Thanks in advance.

Hi Dude,

I would recommend you to take a look at Sun's Java BluePrint web site.

There, you can find useful web sample applications, free pdf books and a lot of stuff related to web applications developed with both J2EE 1.4 and J2EE 5.

A very helpful starting point would be the Java Pet Store Demo which is part of Java BluePrints and contains a real web application started from zero showing all the most likely concepts you would find in the real world.

I also would recommend you to download the J2EE 1.4 Samples which contains a lot of code and real world examples.

Finally, if you are using Tomcat, I also would recommend you to take a look at http://localhost:8080/servlets-examples. There you can find a lot of stuff for fun.

If you are looking for some swing sample applications, I would recommend you to take a look at :

Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing: Table of Contents
Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing
SwingWiki: Java Swing Developer Wiki

Oh ! One of the most pratical certifications Sun offers is the SCJD - Sun Certified Java Developer.

I also think such certification would be very useful if you are looking for some experience in Swing field.

Hope that helps.
