I don't know where to place this, so I've choosen this thread. I think it can be a lot of help to a lot of newbies.

My question is : what is a good Java magazine, which one are you reading, and why?

Well, that sort of depends on what you are trying to get out of your reading. Are you looking for tips and techniques on how to use java, or are you looking for technology trends in the internet industry? Do you want to keep up with the architecture and hardware aspects of applications or are you concentrating on the software and programming side. There are lots of resources out there - but it does depend on what you are looking for.
I subscribe to JDC Tech Tips by e-mail (sample )
I get a hardcopy of Information Weekly.
But other than that, I pretty much go get what particular topic that I am looking into on a pull basis.
I have heard that JavaWorld is very good.
