HI all. first of all am sorry as I dont know if i am posting this in a correct part of this forum. But i really need a guidance about WHAT NEXT? I have been studying java since past two years and now Ihave completed studying and practising Java SE, JSP and Servlets. Now what should I begin with. Like any framework? If yes, then which ones? Please suggest!!

Many Thanks!!

You are in the correct part of the forum. Have you learned JDBC while you were learning Java SE? If not, learn that. The next framework I think should be Spring. It's heavily used in industry. And the concepts will help you with both EJB and Spring.

Also, what is your goal? At some point presumably you want to get a job. Or maybe you are a student and want to get a job after you graduate. The answer to this question may get you more targeted advice. (For example, I'd recommend looking for an internship if you are a student.)

Study without practical experience is not that useful. Its good that you already have theoretical knowledge but now you should concentrate of making applications and not just theoretical knowledge.Make some sample applicaitons it can be anything Shopping Cart or any other you can think of and keep practicing. Its better way to learn.
I agree. Here's the link:
