Hello Pals

I have done Core java especially from "Head First Java" book. I have done SCJP too... I want to move my skills ahead in JAVA World but dont know exactly how to move ahead from this...

With so many technologies and Frameworks , could you please tell me the path to follow to learn the latest in market.

Should i pick up "Head first Servlets and JSP" as a next step ??? or "JDBC" stuff....???

Regards

Before learning any framework.

I think you should go to servelts,jsp and jdbc..
Once proficency gained then go for framework..

options
a) Learn how the servlet container works.
b) Prepare and take SCJD, this way you'll learn to apply java.
c) Work on java

Just to make ensure....

I have heard that now a days everything is done using "Spring" and "Hibernate" . so there is no need to learn servlets, jsp , jdbc.

How much it is true ???

Spring and Hibernate are frameworks that are designed to accomplish some goal by less code. Hibernate uses JDBC to interact with a database. If you do not understand how JDBC works, then you will have trouble understanding the Hibernate framework. It would be like trying to learn Calculus before learning Algebra.

I would suggest working with some JDBC tutorials that you find online. It is easy to work with/understand, but the most difficult part is setting up the database.

I would suggest going through the Head First Servlets and JSP book since it is the golden standard for learning Servlets and JSP. It is worth the money because any tutorial you find online with not be as complete or easy to understand.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
