I am a fresh SCJP with no prior java development experience except for coding for SCJP preparation. So I started with the examples on java ranch cattle drive. And I have finished programming for JAVA FUNDAMENTALS and OOPS. And currently working on SERVLETS. All the examples so far seemed to touch essential classes in java api. My question is - 1) If I have finished all these programs where can I rate myself? Beginner or Intermediate? 2) Can someone please suggest a mid-size project bigger than these examples which would be kind of on level with work in the industry? I appreciate any advice.
Same Case is with me..I am not a computer science student..but I found programing very interesting although i am working on java project but these are very big project and i am just a member..!! I want to do some mid size project alone..to gain some experience...!! I will appreciate if some one can help us..!!
What Kaydell meant is that the SCJD includes a programming assignment; you might use that as practice. But the assignments are not freely available - you have to sign up for the SCJD to get them (which costs USD 250, and you need to take the SCJP exam before).
But let's not discuss the SCJD any further in this thread; that's what we have the SCJD forum for.
