Hi

Im new to java programming. Still working on programming fundamentals. But i would like to build my carrier towards ecommerce with java programming.
Im thinking about learn J2EE as well. But i have no much idea since i hear so many different paths with java such as Servlets, JSP, Swing, Swing / AWT / SWT, Game Development and etc
Can someone please give me advice whats more practical to learn after basic level.

Thank you in advance.

Regards
Rayan

Rayan,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

Yes, much ecommerce uses web applications - so servlets and JSP are a good next step. You'll also need the ability to write to a database (JDBC and JPA) and communicate with other systems (web services maybe?)

Note that in English, the spelling is "career". This is a common spelling error. I'm pointing it out so you aren't embarrassed on a cover letter one day!

Hi Jeanne,
Thank you for your reply. And also correcting my English mistake.
If you have any idea could you let me know any book, website or some resource where i can learn JSP, Serlets and J2EE.
I'm trying to do some self studies.

Thank you again

Rayan

Look at the Oracle Certified Professional Web Component Developer exam, and the various books you can get to help you prepare for it, as this covers a lot of the stuff Jeanne mentions. The book "Head First Servlets & JSP" is an excellent introduction to these topics, although it's aimed at an older version of the exam.
