A highly sought-after object oriented language, Java has been in a constant state of flux ever since it was founded and launched to the developer community. With a host of benefits to boast about, Java has been shouldering the responsibility of delivering some the best web applications with élan. The Java suite makes it possible for you to create applications with fully-featured attributes, perfectly rounding up your project requirements.

As this platform continues to flourish, more and more developers â both new and experienced â are feeling the need to get themselves acquainted with it. The jobs in Java are in full bloom and for a variety of reasons for it. There is a huge jump in the number of companies resorting to Enterprise Java Development for their software projects. Companies realize that in order to make an impact in the development market, they need to adopt this platform that has its root in high performance. The sooner they update their technology to Java, better is their chance to come up with software solutions of high quality and performance levels. And they are looking to hire Java developers who promise quality.

So, these factors contribute to students and professionals looking to learn Java and leverage the skills later in their jobs. The objective is to get into a development company that gives them great worth for their Java skills. Now, there is no dearth of training institutes that provide elaborative Java training to such aspirants. While they charge a humongous fees â most of them do â but they make sure that people who sign up with them learn Java in the most detailed manner so that they stand good chance of getting a job. The more reputed institutes even offer campus placements. They conduct various tests over the course of training, which may range from 3 months to 2 years. The tests comprise of questions that gauge the candidates on how good are their basics in Java as well as how well they can fare when asked about advanced Java features. The tests ask theoretical questions as well as questions might require candidates to come up with few piece of code to perform certain functions. Thereby, there is a least chance that someone with an average knowledge set will get to score high in these tests.

Whilst these training institutes provide their own course material for you to prepare for the tests, you can also seek help from a number of popular books on Java that have been hotly pursued by anyone who is willing to learn this programming language for making a career in it. Java Concurrency in Practice is one such book that introduces you to the basics of Java programming and makes sure that your non-familiarity of the software platform doesnât prove to be a cobweb in your learning process. It is a highly interactive book that also throws light on some complex aspects of the programming. Authored by Brian Goetz, it is one of the top selling Java literatures out there.

âThe Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Masterâ is one such book that follows you right through the road from being a beginner to becoming an expert. The movie has highly insightful chapters that illustrate various Java elements, extensions, syntax and advanced concepts. The interactivity of the book make it a must buy. âClean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanshipâ follow close on the heels by broadcasting the rules you need to create programs with clean codes. The emphasis is laid on not filling the programs with unnecessary clutter and this book makes sure you know how to separate important from redundant. The experienced developers also need help from some book every once in a while. âRefactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Codeâ is for advanced developers as it focuses on concepts that are imperative to make sure the code they write not only performs its function astutely, but is also comprehensible enough to be reused in the future for projects with a similar structure.

Java is a considerably vast field, and one that involves patience and keenness to master. While the learning process may take time, and apparently a lot of money, if you are sincere, you get true value for your investments.
