    ha ha ha LMAO (pardon me here), Lately I have started to notice I am building plans for everything, including my son's after meal walk (stuff like where i am going to take him, how am i going to get there, how far are we going to walk instead of just go somewhere and take a freaking walk). So, I am not the only one to say "too much of software for me now".

Most things can be done with several technologies anyway.
      I would absolutely agree. You'll get a series of a few months where everyones writing a few X framework. Web, Testing, ORM, Docking, it's IoC now........

      I would agree again. I actually find the abstract stuff more interesting than the implementation anyway.

        Theory is nice. After reading for a while you have a clear picture of how you will design your next application but as they say, "No battle plan ever survives first contact with the enemy"

                  From what I recently read, I'd recommend "Java concurrency in practice". It's very likely that sooner or later you'll have to cope with threading issues, and this books gives a good grasp of the topic.

                  Other then that, Agile Database techniques is cool and enjoyable read.

                    Design Pattern good book

                    You can also read 'Head First Design Patterns'. I have read it and its very good book.

                      I confirm; Headfirst Design Patterns is not your regular technical book. Very readable and written in unusual style.

                      My recent reads from the Martin Fowler Signature series:

                      Beyond Software Architecture - covers important aspects of software architecture from the point of view of both technical and marketing person.

                      Enterprise Integration Patterns - if you want to do any systems integration by means of messaging, this is the book. Contains a catalogue of messaging patterns, from easiest to most complex. Examples include JMS.

                          Thats a quite old thread you have digged out there - I personally find "Domain Driven Design" (E. Evans) very good.

                            Some personal new recommendations:
                            Working Effectly with legacy code
                            Agile software development - princibles, patterns and practices
