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.
Im currently working in java and c++ technology and have 2 years of experience on the same. But I want to shift to web development stream now out of interest [And why I haven't thought of this earlier, is something Im unaware of too]. I wanted to know if this kind of shift is advisable. Also, I want to know the pros and cons for the same. Im planning to start off with learning Php. Please suggest.
Currently I'm on a project that mostly is a rich client software. So, it only deals with java and SWT. I'm aware of those two technologies. However, I wanted to move onto web development stream[again here WD is a vast area and I'm trying to start off with PHP. ]. So, what I wanted to know is if it is ok to move from one field to the other. Hopefully, I have answered your query.
I have some idea about servlets and jsp [I assume that is what you mentioned of]. But I'm not aware of springs/struts/hibernate frameworks. Also, I googled and found that php is better one to start WD. So, Joe, what would add more weight to my resume to get into web development..is it jsp servlets..[please add anything else that need to be done in correlation to these two] or is it Php?. Please suggest..im planning to start from tomorrow[ if at all "Shifting streams from java to Web Dev." is not that risky.....
Thanks All. Finally one last question. Should I focus on jsp/servlets and then try to learn springs/struts/hibernate or should I be working via the Php way. I want to know which way it would be better to process fast and at the same time have my resume look good.[Also I love this web development env so Im fine with either the approaches. I wanted to know which one seems more logical.]

Aside, Java is a name and the first letter of a name in English is capitalized. The correct spelling of Java is 'Java', not 'java.'
If you are spelling Java wrong on your resume, you are showing a non-caring attitude, i.e. you don't care about your presentation, or you are showing a degree of ignorance with English language. Either one of these is not good.
