Annu, I was in your shoes about 2 years ago. I could put together a Java program, but.... I really had no clue if what I was doing even resembled good code. This is coming from a programmer with 10 years total experience, over 1 year of Java, 9 on the mainframe, additional Visual Basic and Visual FoxPro etc.
I started off with Teach Yourself Java 2 in 21 days, which put me on the right track to getting to know the language. I also went over Java Cookbook (O'Reilly) and one other reference book that I can't recall at this time. The latest book was K&B's SCJP 1.5.
I now am working as a Java programmer, which was my goal all along. Success story? Not until I pass the exam!
I must say that Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates "Sun Certified Java Programmer" book for Java 1.5 was my favorite of all. Although not meant as a learning tool, it does just that very effectively - all 800 pages of it.
So, I recommend the K&B SCJP book, and I also recommend writing lots of small practice programs along the way. It will all congeal together over time.
Oh, and it's a great thing that you've found this forum. I wish I'd found it sooner!
Thank you so much guyz for your response and valuable suggestions.Can anyone tell me where can i get example applications or example code for practise.I want to start doing small applications.Can you advice me .
Thanks in advance Anu
