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.
We are currently researching adobe flex and comparing it to jdeveloper.
Can anyone speak to the learning curve for Flex? I believe the learning
curve jdeveloper (if you don't know java) is 2 years.

Good question! At one point when I started my journey in learning Java, I thought that you were suppose to read one book cover-to-cover and be prepared for a test on Monday. One, I realized that my brain rebelled in that the more I read, the less I remembered. And, two, putting your hands on the keyboard and practicing examples from books and web tutorials, go a lot further in learning to code in any language or Framework. So, for JDevelopr, I would go through the tutorial on the Oracle OTN site. For Flex, I would start with "Learn Flex In A Week," from the Adobe website.
