    I am new to JAVA development. I would like to know some details regarding JAVA as an initial step.

    Can anyone suggest some names of websites or web application that is developed using JAVA? Why JAVA is so popular? What is the difference between PHP and JAVA referncxe to website creation?

    Hi
    Usually Java is used for enterprise app and is not used for create simple website as so PHP
    I know some bug tracking tools, which was written on Java. They is very populate.
    For example TrackStudio | Hierarchical Issue Tracking and Bug Tracking Software, Documentation management system, JIRA replacement

    IMXO I think Java is so popular so it has many useful things and more easy for learn then C\C++

    You probably should focus on learning to program in general not just learning the language. The basics of java are all fairly simple to learn. It's dependent on how much effort you put into it. I would suggest you read htdp, available for free at htdp.org, it's not java but it's a great book. I would also highly suggest head first java.

    imxo I don't like .NET. There are all tools, which it use it is paid and new versions it not compatible between them.
    I can't say that the more easy for learning. I think each program language has some difficult things.
    This is depend from you.

    If you want to know some of the more challenging parts of programming try looking at concurrency, generics, and networking(this is my personal opinion and others may have different ideas about what is easy and difficult)

    It's probably not a bad idea to learn multiple languages(if you are confident) I am fairly new I am starting to approach more advanced topics in java. I am also starting c++ and c#.

    I can't give you a lot of projects with sql backends, but you can try doing an address book, a calculator or notepad.

    A better list is available here:
