Hi, This is Minhaj Mehmood from Pakistan.

* Ehizeme in the building. I love java. * Good site for learning all about java. * keep up the good work guys.

June-09-2009 - I'm Sergio Campos from Venezuela This a great site to answer all Java related doubts. I've got help and continue learning. Since I feel welcome here, I say "Welcome" to everyone coming here. Just ask your your question...

Just starting to connect to this site. I'm Kelly from Sun Microsystems and I'd like to help out with any basic low level JDK questions and encourage people to go to I have two blog sites at and Of course I'm sure I'll learn something too, but I'd like to be a resource to this site too. ---

Good site for Java ppl ! Keep up the good work ! - Sara

I just came across an incredibly helpful and simple solution to a vexing problem: Tomcat wasn't re-compiling my JSP's. It was using the old versions instead. Turns out, my dev server's clock was two minutes and some change ahead of my workstation, time-wise. I installed an NTP app and this solved the problem. I've bookmarked your site. So long, Pilgrim. (tippimg my Stetson)

Thanks for creating and posting the explanation of the InvokerServlet entry in web.xml and reviewing the alternatives. This is the best explanation I found in a weekend worth of searching.

Hello everybody, this is khasim Basha.

Swathi just got here. Phew!

Hi ! Its Nagendra Gupta an upcoming S/W Engg from India. Java Ranch provides a very special platform to discuss & obtain all latest info on java & related topics. Hope & pray the good work continues............ Nagendra.

Thought I'd say thanks for the info on the evils of invoke wrt servlets. It took me a bit to get my mind around it, but your explanations made it all clear and, well, I have my first test servlet working. Thanks - Adrian, 13Jun04

Hi Everyone, This is Vishnu. After going through Javaranch site I got the confidence that I can pass exams, they clear all of our doubts. Thanks once again.

A Great Site for all JAVA Dudes.... Thanks Kartik 
Thanks for that long sordid history of the invoker servlet. It helped me a lot. And now I'm learning about Java Ranch (JR). I didn't know Hatfield Seed & Feed was here at the JR. JR is great (looks even better than the head first java book). Yes that fly was disgusting but after a while you see it kind of fits in with the general atmosphere. After all, coffee is an acquired taste, why not flies? -- 2004_11_04

********** Perfect place for programers -- Lavanya **********

What happens when two people edit at the same time? Do they get merged?

[Answer: I'm pretty sure that that last edit submitted simply overwrites the previous submission. So I guess it's good manners to refresh your view of a page (in a separate window) just before submitting changes, to see if any other changes occurred while you were editing.]

Matt was here.

The Weitz Master was here.
