I have been teaching myself Java programming for few months now.
Now i am looking for some materials which can help me develop my programming
technics. It will also be useful materials to deepen my understanding to the java programming.

I would appreciate to get some advise.

if you are looking for some tasks to work though that improve problem solving skill and test your abilty to program try http://projecteuler.net/

start from the beginning and work your way through there are over 300 now and they start to get hard quickly.

ajst:

thanks for the suggestion. i will follow the link you indicated.

What sorts of things have you done already?

using the Sun tutorial and some of the exercises there. Also some part of a free online book. that was all. I felt i need to do more exercises to improve on my skills.

Are you talking really basic ?
GUI applications ?
JDBC connectivity ?

On the Netbeans platform, i copied codes i can get free from the internet and tried to understand, ofcourse along with reading the Tutorial on Java (Sun) and some online books. I tried to do several of the problems.

I would say, i am ok with the basics and need to work more
