and change books/courses: if it has J2EE in the title, chances are high it is outdated, since J2EE became out of date early 2006, when it was replaced by Java EE 5 (and has been called Java EE x every since)
Another good thing to realize: don't go for "shortest time possible". don't learn it "quickly", learn it "decently"

and please go through the companies hiring skils and tell me what i have to study for that.. i started study jsp and servlets, is that worth reading now to get job in my area???
please help


you want to become an "evil coder"? and what is that supposed to mean? planning on writing virusses?

anyway, look at the repeated demands:
Hibernate (a persistence framework) seems asked a lot, so is Struts (a front-end framework).
Swing is pretty easy to learn, it's a front-end gui that allows you to create.
Spring and JPA seem popular too, so you can have your pick.

web services are services you run on a (remote?) webserver, and that you can contact using your own code.
this might make that a bit more clear.
frameworks are (a VERY rough description) some abstract principles combined with certain built-in behaviour, that is supposed to deal with regulary re-occuring tasks to make it simpler.
what database you should study? imho: none. your code should be written in such way that you have to change the very least amount of code (preferrably only one line in a config file) when migrating to another server or database.
but, for instance, in the first add you posted, knowing something about "Microsoft SQL Server (2005 / 2008)" wouldn't hurt.

it'll never hurt you to try. a lot of companies are willing to invest in their (future) employees: if they don't have all the knowledge yet, the company will give them some tutoring, being it with a personal mentor or a group course you'll take.
