Hello all -

I'm new to JavaRanch and just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself to the group and ask a question.

Having recently switched to a Java Developer position after doing WebLogic and SunOne administration for a while, I'm working my way through the Head First Java book (excellent starter book). After that there are several directions I can go, but I'm not sure what to tackle next. The project that I'm working on uses many technologies heavily: Spring, Hibernate, Swing, EJBs.

Would anyone have a recommendation on the quickest and most efficient way to get up to speed on these subjects?

Thanks in advance,
Alex

Welcome Alex! I signed up for JavaRanch my freshman year of college and have found it to be a wonderful community and a helpful resource. I'm sure you will find it to be these things as well.

When started using Swing the first thing that I did was read through Sun's tutorial online. You can find it here:

Also, I've always found the Java2s site to be very helpful. There are plently of code examples - very useful if you need to see how something actually works. Check it out here:

Good luck!
