Hi Folks,

I have experience programming in C/C++ and I wanted to learn Java.

I actually want to learn Java SE/EE/ME.

Could you people please advice me which books would be appropriate for each of them? I am ready to read any number of books necessary to become good in each of the 3 platforms!!! Also, please tell me the order in which I have to read the books. Because according to what I read Java ME is more advanced than Java EE which is in turn more advanced compared to Java SE.

Thank you for reading

A few things:

Firstly, good communication skills are a very important part of programming. Your subject of "please help me" wasn't a particularly good choice. Please take the time to compose good and descriptive subjects for your posts. I have adjusted the subject for you.

Secondly, visit the JavaRanch Bunkhouse. There you will find not only lists of books on various Java and web-related subjects, but expert reviews of these books.

Finally, you are not going to learn all there is to know about Java in a short time. Focus on becoming fluent with Java SE before even thinking about branching out to EE or ME.

Because according to what I read Java ME is more advanced than Java EE which is in turn more advanced compared to Java SE.

"Advanced"? Not the term I would use. ME is a subset of SE, so how could it be more "advanced"?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
