    Default Which Is Easier To Learn...Struts, Hibernate, Spring, EJB, JSP

    Which of these flavors of Java is easier to learn to the point where I can get a job as a Java programmer?

    Struts, Hibernate, Spring, EJB, or JSP (those are the only five options that I'm interested in)

    I don't even know what those are. I've never programmed in Java. Below is my programming experience rated on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being extreme expert and 1 being extreme beginner.

    COBOL = 2
    BASIC = 3
    VBA (Excel) = 4
    Java = 0

    VBA for Excel is object oriented programming.

    My hope is that I can get good enough in 12 months (or less) of self training to write an app that will impress the employer enough to hire me.
    I have an MBA with MIS focus. I'm definitely capable of self training if I can find the right books and resources. I have the natural raw skills of a programmer mind but I have insufficient training nor experience.

    kind thanks,
    Eddie

    If you've never programmed in Java, then your best bet is to start at the basic tutorials.

    If your Java = 0, then even you cannot start with the 5 technologies you mentioned. Starting with basic Java is a must. And there are lot of tutorials out there.

    Thank you for your response...and it certainly sounds like great advice. So please allow me to rephrase my question;

    After I take the first step of learning basic Java, which of the following five is easiest to learn:

    Struts, Hibernate, Spring, EJB, JSP

    In otherwords, my sole goal is to learn one of those five and I'm willing to take the necessary pre-requisite steps to get there but I only want to take the steps that are absolutely necessary to get to my sole goal. But I can't establish a goal until I start contemplating which of those five should be my final goal. So which of those five do you think is easiest to learn (regarless of whether or not it's a 2 step process or a 47 step process to get there).

    kind thanks,
    Eddie

    None of them are really "easier" than the others: there are dependencies between them, hierarchies, and relationships. You can't take one by itself and ignore the others. Why limit yourself to just one technology anyway? Plus, what *you* find easier might be completely different from what other people find easier. It's really going to depend on how you learn and what you're interested in. So we can't really answer your question any more specifically than we already have.
