    I've started learning java about 2 years ago, and I've already have about 1.5 year of work experience.

    I agree, real world projects are different than college projects, etc. E.g. the live system is different from the local one, where your site can have about 10000 online users simultaneously, and this time you can't say what will happen with your system. So in the real world you need not only write just a code, but you need to write optimal code for making all happy :)

    Yep, you are right. Most important thing is the design or the architecture. If the design is much strong, much stable the system always stronger.

    Yep, this is where the action is - what there is of it - and the libs for Java are vastly effective for just about everything.

    I transitioned to Java in under a month, at the request of Team Lead's cs friend. That was an unexpected facillitation that allowed real-world progress that would have not been accomplished elsewise.

    I am perplexed by the number of posts we see where someone is asked to extend a commercially supplied package, using Java, but obviously has no cs academics. Many of the people we see in Java are field-trained, from the get-go, and pick up on how it works due to needing to solve some real problem possibly in a busniness arena. Academics has picked up Java as a training base, but I would take the original poster's poll and question in the direction of how much ( prevelance, in a statistical sense ) .... how many true Academic students who are attuned to the real-world vis-a-vis "just trying to make a grade"

    Major reason is in most of the high-school projects only few doing it by heart. Others are copied, since projects are teamwork. Most of pupils not gain valued experience.

    None. I'm completely new to it and I don't intend on learning just yet, but perhaps in a year or two it'd be a good skill to learn.

    Default Good ol' Java

    well I started my java experience in the year 2003 or something, that makes it 7 years. Pretty good. Java turned in Java 6 pretty good though some libraries like calendar or date should be removed ;)

    More than 5 years. And I can say that I'm tired of it. It is not interesting for me to write tons of code to done even small feature. Its time to chose another language or extend Java (using closures, for example).

    Welcome, your experience really helpful to all of us, specially newbies to Java.

    Actually touch and go with more than one programming language is much much better. At the time I'm working on with C/C++, C#.Net, ASP.Net, Java and JS. It make a real value to me in the industry.

    All these technologies are very similar. I've used C#, ASP.NET, JS, Python, PHP, ActionScript in different projects. Even all these languages are very similar.

    It will be interesting for me to learn something like Erlang, OCaml, Schema, Haskell and etc.

    Yes, quite similar. But C/C++ and others are totally different. Memory management is the most attractive thing I've seen. Unfortunately I don't know anything about PHP.

    I've taken in mind language paradigm. C/C++ and Java are imperative languages. Closures are functional-language feature.

    Me also, really PHP doesn't attract my attention even if the market requires PHP programmers, I am happy with Java and my job :p

    By heart, JS also not make sense to me. But I've to use it in ASP developments. I really hate about the variable declaration in JS. ;)

    I hated JS, but when I needed to work with ,really not it seems not be so awful, anyway you can use GWT if you hate JS ;-), but if you work with ASP ,I have no alternative

    I agreed with you, once we have to work on something we must take into better way. Actually with ASP there is no any alternative, like what JS do in the application.
