I haven't taken any, but if classroom instruction suits your learning style, you should definitely pursue that. There must be plenty of colleges around with "continuing education" programs, or commercial training companies. Have you looked on java.sun.com for links to training? Or even call your local Sun office. > So, if your a JPS programmer, how did you learn? Any insight, and/or > recommendations are greatly appreciated. I just pick stuff up as I go, though I wouldn't claim that's always the best approach. My initial recommendation would be to just install the latest 1.4.2 JDK and Tomcat 5.0.28 and start looking at the included examples. And get on the Tomcat-users mailing list. Moderately busy, and a lot of it won't make any sense at first, but it'll help :-) I haven't run across any JSP/servlet-specific mailing lists, though there are various forums. Oh, and the jakarta-taglibs-users list is good, and taglibs are wonderful for getting usable apps out more quickly. Just try stuff and use Google -- you make a change in a JSP and oops, got an ohCrapWhatNowException? -- copy, paste, click, someone's almost certainly already been there and asked about it online :-) HTH! -- Hassan Schroeder ----------------------------- hassan at webtuitive.com Webtuitive Design === (+1) 408-938-0567 === http://webtuitive.com dream. code.
