This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.

I am not a big fan of web design and was actually gonna switch to C++ until I found out about JNI.
How is learning JNI going to mitigate the need to learn C++? JNI is just an interface to get to native code that is normally written in C/C++. And quite frankly, it is very hard to use too. Personally, I would rather code completely in C++, than to code in a mixture of Java and C++, using JNI as the way to switch between them.

Since I am the only one who responded to your posts so far, was it something that I said that caused you to come to this conclusion? I don't think that I mentioned anything that even hinted that C++ skills won't get you jobs. There are lots of positions for C++ programmers. There are lots of positions for Java programmers. And hence, there are more options for those who know both C++ and Java.

If you wanted to write advanced software and server applications which technologies would you learn? I have an extreme passion for software and server applications!
I don't thing doing server side web applications aren't that bad but I hate client side. I apologize for the ignorant questions.
