You become a better coder by writing code. It doesn't sound like you've being doing the RCP (RPC?) ofr long so in my opinion you're better off sticking with it to give it a real go rather than jumping to something else and potentially starting again.

Hi Muruga,

Welcome to ranch world. I am also from same state in India.
First of all I will tell you one thing If you want to develop your coding knowledge, you have to do more home work.
Learn java from the scratch and do more and more sample programs.
Learn framework such as struts,JSF,Hibernate etc.

Do sample project and definetly you will get confidence.

Waiting for your reply.

Regards,
Sriram.V

Once you get chance to work in a development project you will automatically gain the confidence. Look for that kind of work in your office. Till the time you can read the code developed by other developers which will give you ideas about tips of coding. Its just a matter of developing one module and you will get that ...

Hi Sriram,
Yeah am just following your Idea And in the same post one more friend had rightly told that once when we are into a development project and if we are doing one module things will change. Am slowly growing. But one thing am sure Already am I crossed half the well and at this point of time getting back is foolishness. Moreover In spite of jumping from well I shouldn't land in sea. So am gonna be a java developer for ever.
I apologise for late response.

What am trying to express here is, I had a task and I was not able to give a solution for it.
I have passion to work in java, since I have not worked in a development project I don't have real time coding experience. So I cannot think more to get a solution. So what should I do?
Can you please give your suggestion to improve my skills. I don't want to leave java, already I have crossed half so by going to a new platform or domain I don,t want to start my career from initial stage.

Thanks,
Muruga,

Your first real project is always hard. The important thing when you start out is to keep it simple, keep trying and learn from your mistakes.

My first real project (waayyyy back in 95) was an internship at a small company, and I had to write a data load program in Visual C++. I made this overcomplicated design using all of OO design principles that I knew. I spent like 3 months on it, and my boss decided that I was not worth the real estate value of the table I was sitting at and sent me to work in a server room at a remote satellite office. That gave me the kick in the pants that I needed, and I threw all the crap away, and did a much simpler implementation in like a week or so. I showed it to my boss, and he said "I guess this is ok". Then he gave me more work, and then more work. Finally one day, he visited the satellite office for some reason, and he offered to drive me home in the evening. We got to talk about the next thing I was going to work on, and I could impress him enough to get back to the main office.

If you are having trouble with coming up with solutions, start with simple solutions. IMO, a lot of people who just come out of college have their head filled with all this knowledge but no real skill in how to apply it. Keep it simple. Look at a simple solution, then look at the drawbacks, and see if you can improve.

Also, nothing wrong in being a tester, if you like testing. I'd rather be an happy tester than an unhappy programmer.

If you can't do your job correctly why did you applied for them? Anyone can do all the jobs, just believe in your skills. Now, if you get another job, you will definitely start in down. My advice is that enhance your skills more or it's much better if you take up a short course about your job.

No. After a LOT of learning and a LOT of training on the job many people might be able to do many jobs. But not everybody. And not every job.

Yeah nobody can do all jobs, but everything can be learned. If you just focus on one thing you can do great things, set aside the things that is not related to your job.
