This year (2007) i intend to continue with learning of EJB 3.0 and JSF 1.2 to begin with. I have also started a project BaseApp (a kick-starter application for development using Java EE 5.0). I also have intentions to learn a bit about JBoss Seam framework (since its on standards track and is a framework built around EJB 3 and JSF). I also think that EJB 3 and JSF 1.2 together with up coming Web beans (or current JBoss seam) will be a strong (and standard) contender to Spring framework. So i will be focusing a lot on Java EE this year too.
Also the goal will be complete BaseApp. For now, baseapp happens to be open ended enterprise but we will soon be defining the requirements for the first release formally.
A few things i missed to complete last year are the reading of,
- H F Design patterns
- JUnit in Action
- J2EE Design and Development
- H F HTML with CSS & XHTML
- Get SCEA certification
- BPEL and WSDM/WS-Man
