Noob question: Is it possible to learn Java and Java EE at the same time
Firstly modirators: If this post is in the wrong forums please feel free to move or redirect it to a more appropiate forums.
I am a bit of a noob to real application development. I have made a few silly games for my kids over the years (sometimes using Java) but thats it really.
I want to make a bit of a real application for my wife (rental Property Managment Application). I was discussing which language to use via a different thread (click here).
One of the suggestions was to use Java EE due to it framework. Another suggestion related to the importance of a good frame work base dlanguage over a specific language. I did some reasearch and I feel this is great advice that I should follow. I am leaning towards Java EE.
My question though is:
Do experienced developer feel it is possible for a noob to learn both Java and Java EE at the same time as part of a application delevopment project?
My project in short would involve (read here for greater details)
Security (most important as personal data is being stored, and regulatory compliance)
Web server (advertisment and interaction)
business transcations (finacial transcations)
cross platform (tablets for people to do work on then sync with main DB later)
And probably a heap more that I havent thought of!
Commerical speed of devolpment is not the major thing here. My learning along the journey to completing the app for my wife is more the thing. The app is still the major outcome to be achieved though

Sure. It shouldn't take too long to get tomcat up and running, then you can start playing around with Java and JSP to build a webapp, using whatever frontend you want.
