Ok, <BR>heres the question, I am challenged to learn Java. I have bought a book an begin looking into it. Can anyone tell me some more info. How hard will it be for me to pick up. I have done ASP for about 2 years. I realize the differences about Java being multi-platforms and also used to write both web apps(applets) and applications, but can someone give me any more info on Java. Or any good message boards that you may know of????<BR>I hear that Java is getting really hot now and I am wondering if its worth the time for me to learn?<BR>Thanks in advance!
