I am an SCJP with no Industry Experience. I read a few posts here which encourage people to get Open Source Project Experience. Can someone guide me as to which are the good Open Source Projects for j2ee technologies and how does one get on their teams

So, how does this actually work? I just passed my SCJP2 and want to develop some experience in Java and related technologies.

You find a project you like (e.g. Comp-in-a-Box), and start looking at the code. In some projects, you simply make modifications and then offer them for submission. in other cases, you should talk to the project owners about an area in whcih you're interested.
