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.
It depends what you want to get out of it, but the Sun Java Web Services Development Kit contains some useful tools to get you started. Also, check out some of the open source tool kits and perhaps there is also a plug-in for the (free) Eclipse too. Hope that helps... Simon
