Hello All.

I have a job which involves a fair bit of J2SE, and I've just passed the SCJP exam. I would love to work in a job involving more Java, and I've noticed that most advertised jobs are looking for J2EE experience (UK).

Is there a way to "get into" J2EE without buying expensive course material?

Also, is there any freely available IDE for Enterprise Java?

Which certification route is best?

I would be interested to hear your views on the balance between Standard and Enterprise Java in the UK job market. Should I take the plunge with J2EE or stick with J2SE?

Regards , Ben.

Online articles and tutorials... If you are good in finding online free resources in learning a tech... This would be the cheapest way to get into J2EE...

Of course, Eclipse is known as the best free IDE for J2EE...


Which certification route is best?


SCJP >> SCWCD >> SCBCD >> SCEA >> SCDJWS

I'm not sure about the Java jobs in U.K. But in Thailand, which I am currently residing, if you know only SWING and J2SE, it is very less likely that you will get a job... But there are a lot out there for J2EE positions... As for me, I used to be a die-hard fan of SWING and AWT, but the job market forced me to get into J2EE... Now I should be having fun with J2EE, even though I do like SWING and GUI stuff more than J2EE....
 
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
