    Unhappy Career change from HTML developer to Java developer


    I need guidance on switching my career to Java from ASP.NET/HTML development.

    I have 3 years of experience in HTML, Javascript, CSS, 6 months experience in ASP.NET, a very little experience in Ruby on Rails and PHP.

    I always wanted to be a Java developer, I did my undergrad in Computer sciences(graduated in 2007), my final year project was in Java, then I did my Masters in Information Systems(I did a couple of courses - one in Java and other in JSP/Hibernate. I completed my graduation in 2009. Then I searched for Java positions, but due to recession, I couldnt find any Java positions. The only job I got was a HTML developer(mostly HTML, CSS, JS, some Classic ASP/ASP.NET/PHP). I have been in this job for 3 years now and I am looking to shift my career to Java.

    I have never had any professional experience in Java, other than the project that I did in my undergrad. Now I need some guidance on how to gain practical hands-on experience so that I can reach my goal.

    I have come across "9 CD's Sun MicroSystems Java Training" on a website. Can anyone suggest if this is a good way to learn Java?

    I am sure I can pickup Java easily, but I don't know that path to take, the books/resources to read etc. Please help me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Moved from New to Java. Don't post non-technical questions in the technical sections.

    If you're forever cleaning cobwebs, it's time to get rid of the spiders.
