Dear All,

I had completed my SCJP 1.4 certification way back in year 2006. I want to update my knowledge with the updates in Java 5 and higher versions. Is there any book or url where in I can get the listing of updates with each version of Java?


Thanks in Adv,
Pankaj

For link:
Java 5 new features and Java 7 new features. (I don't think I use anything that was added in Java 6.)

For books:
I really liked Java 5 Developers Notebook. It is short (for a computer book) and easy to read. It also focuses in on the parts of Java 5 you are likely to use. For Java 7, I recommend Java 7 New Features Cookbook or The Well Grounded Java Developer. The Cookbook includes a lot on Swing Java 7 changes in addition to the "core" ones. The Well Grounded Java Developer covers the "core" Java 7 changes and then gets into other concepts and JVM languages you should know.

hello Pankaj,

Why don't you go for Java SE 7 upgrade exam and improve your skills in latest technology changes. You can try any upgrade exam books like OCP Java SE 7 Training Lab or similar.
