Hi All,
I have 10 years experience in java software development. I have worked across domains like e-commerce, CRM, financial. I learnt a lot from all these projects.

I have been part of a trading project for 2+ years now, I did learn new things with this project too. But I am beginning to feel that I have lost touch with technical skills and become more familiar with the project specific skills.

I wish to get back on track with learning new things and gaining more broader understanding of software development to reach somewhere close to architect level. I am unable to think of how to go about it.

What all things can I do to increase my knowledge. I do think about reading technical articles but dont know where to start.

Please advice on possible ways that I should explore.

Thanks
 
Marshal

Do you want to learn the most recent Java® developments? Or software development? Or the theory of programming?
For updating Java® skills, consider books like Mala Gupta's book about Java11/12 (Packt), Kishori Sharan's book about Java13 (Apress), Urma Fuso and Mycroft's Modern Java in Action (Manning), or Cay Horstmann's book introducing Java9 for the Impatient (?Pearson?).
There are lots more resources available and doubtless somebody else will suggest something different.

Sorry for delayed response.

Yes, I would like to get in touch with latest stuff in java development and also would like to understand things at software architecture level (top level view of enterprise applications).  

And regarding the books you have mentioned, is there any sequence that I should follow?
