I am studying a course on web design. Is Java something for me?

I am a newbie.

Your thoughts are welcome

Even though this isn't really a performance
question I can say that Java is certainly a good
choice for web design.

There are at least as many web design frameworks
as there are programmers ;-)
Certainly many of them are in Java, but even if you later
use a different language I think the object-oriented
concepts from Java will help you in the learning process.

There are so many issues with web design I won't
even attempt to cover them here, but just highlight
a couple of references:
1. The Online Java Tutorial
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/java/
2. The BlueJ Environment for learning Java
(I am not endorsing this product, simply that
I have heard it's good for learning Java)
http://www.bluej.org/about/what.html
3. Using Java servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP's)
for web development:

4. Building JSP's with the free NetBeans IDE
