Hey Tony,
That was a SCJP question, and its not getting enough attention there in the beginner Thread, so would you mind using some discretion .
Thanks

Why would it get more attention here? In a couple of days it will scroll off of here. By then, some guy with an excellent answer might see your message in the other forum.
Tony, Jim and I discussed the high traffic here and came to the conclusion that if we don't move some threads to other forums, a lot of good stuff is going to get scrolled to the back woods really fast. Plus, if someone is studying for, say, the AWT portion of the exam, they can find lots of AWT questions all in one place without having to sift through a bunch of stuff they have already learned.

Dear Tony and Paul,
First of all I am very sorry for being rude or coy with Tony, Tony I am very very sorry, and please do accept my apoligies.
Paul, your quite right and the reason for which it was shifted to totally valid. I did not realize this was the reason why the message was shifted.
Paul, if I may suggest, what do you think about the idea of creating sub Threads withing this SCJP Thread for different topics according to the SCJP objectives and one Misc one.
That way people can submit question about Threads, io, util pack, lang pack, modifiers and casting to different Sub Threads.
And hence the questions wont go to the woods in a couple of days. Its just a suggestion.

"Tony I have been to your Home page, its quite cool my Amigo"
Ah yes!! I forget I have one! (Web page)
It started as an experiment in HTML in the Spring of 1995... It has grown a lot since then!
Thank you!
And no offense was taken!

I need to pay closer attention. I didn't see the rude and coy stuff.
Sub threads? Why not carry on in the other forums?
Right now about 60% of the people coming here are preparing for the SCJP exam. 20% are learning Java in general and the rest are coming to exahnge information about Java.
If you force everything into the SCJP forum, the people that could answer your question might not see it cuz they care about AWT/Swing stuff, not SCJP exams.
Would you agree with that?

Your right in your own way Paul,
May be creating sub threads according to the SCJP Objectives might help organise this forum more., but maybe its just fine as it is at the moment, depends on what other users think.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
