Now I join to SCJD. And I manager my way after the following way. Am I right?
1. I learn how to program with Swing.
I study the Swing tutorial on the java.sun.com. I want to know main technology of Swing according the tutorial.
2. I learn how to program with RMI.
I study the RMI tutorial on the java.sun.com.
Do I have to learn some other technology?

2. I learn how to program with RMI.

Sounds like a simple plan
I would add a few more items to your list:
-- design patterns (especially facade, adapter, proxy, factory, and MVC)
-- threads and synchronization (with real understanding of wait/notify, deadlocks and race conditions)
-- Sun's Java Look and Feel Design Guidelines
-- Java Code Conventions
-- Collections (especially maps, arrays, and lists)
-- Layout managers
-- JTable and AbstractTableModel

Thanks.
I have some questions about your suggestion
-- How to get start with design pattern. Can you give me some ideas?
-- What's the meaning of race conditions in threads and synchronization?
Thanks again.

The classic text on design patterns is a so called Gof (Gang of Four) book.
The best (practical) book for threads is Java Thread Programming
There is a lot of free info on the web for all the topics. For high quality articles, search in

Eugene Kononov, Thanks a lot.
I will go with the path your refer to me.
Can you make friend with me?
I like the J2EE techonolgy and try my best to study it. And I wish I can be a designer of J2EE project solely in future.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
