Exactly TODAY is my 0.5 year "anniversary" of professional Java programming experience. Because of this site and the other one that helped me get 98% on the SCPJ2 exam last Valentine's Day, they started me with the salary of someone with AT LEAST one year experience... I DID have programs and applets posted on my Web site ( http://alicea.org/java ) that demonstrated the 8 months that I studied Java (I studied *much more* than needed for the exam, BTW...) after having no OOP experience at all (I was a C and assembly language programmer...)
As Elvis would say, "Thank You! Thank You Very Much!"

That was great!
Can you share your job experience here. i.e., Without OOP experience was it easy to learn servlets and JSP on the job. Did you have a scheduled training or you had to learn by yourself? What books did you use for JSP?
Thanks,
Valli
