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.
I'm new to this forum. Sorry if this topic is not supposed to be discussed here. I know core Java and I'm now learning more about Swing and handling GUI. I would like to know what all I should learn to become a J2EE developer. I've searched for this on the web and found people listing the names of a lot of technologies but I'm confused about where to start. Thanks in advance.
Are you a .NET developer? The reason I'm asking is because when working with Microsoft technologies, you can skip certain technology fundamentals and become productive. However, in Java EE world (no longer called J2EE) I believe is the opposite. I don't think JSP is a good start. I'd begin with how application and web servers works and I'd learn Java and its concepts very well.
