NX: Finally getting started on the exam.... where to get started

Hello All,
I have been signed up for the SCJD test for about 6 months now and am finally going to start on it. :-) I have been reading over the materials and I have the URLyBird discount hotel room project.
I have not started many projects from scratch, so I am trying to figure out where I should first start. My first thought is to take care of implementing the DB interface and setup my database access class so that I can easily get to my records.
What do you guys think?

Hi Mark,
Welcome to JavaRanch and this forum !
I have been signed up for the SCJD test for about 6 months now and am finally going to start on it. :-) I have been reading over the materials and I have the URLyBird discount hotel room project.

URLyBird assignment is same as mine. But there are a few sub-versions of it (I got 1.2.1).
My first thought is to take care of implementing the DB interface and setup my database access class so that I can easily get to my records.

That's what most of people here do AFAIK, and as you, I think it's the logical start. You can design, write and test your db access without any network stuff and no GUI. For testing purposes, a simple multithreaded console app will do the job.
This SCJD search link may be helpful, but don't hesitate to post questions though !
In this thread (post dated January 01, 2004 03:18 PM), Andrew (moderator of this forum) just posted interesting explanations and tricks about how to use UBB codes to help you format your posts.
Good luck !
Regards,
Phil.

that's where I started (and stalled).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
