This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Wow, your FAQ is great! I think it is what I always missed on this site. How about appends? Famous "What may cause a thread to stop", MediaTracker, GC... FAQ is such a good idea, I also want to participate...
Thanks guys! I worked hard on the FAQ page and more will be coming soon!! I want to make some more FAQ pages for other forums before making any additions to this one ... but all of your ideas are being noted! I've had some really lovely e-mails too saying how great it is, thank everyone ... you've all managed to pick me up on a rather horrible day (I have a terrible cold and have been suffering rather badly all day .. but feel a little better now )
Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
Angela & Ajith, Excellent job with the FAQ. Thanks for thinking this through & implementing it. This is going to be the single most important source to start preparing for SCJP. My 2 cents: I think we should put the following questions on the top - What are the SCJP objectives? What is the best way to prepare for SCJP? What books should I refer to when studying for SCJP? Has the SJCP-2 syllabus changed? If so, what is the new syllabus?

Thanks guys! unfortunatly I havn't been bale to get things going as quickly as I would have liked since I have been quite ill over the past few days! I'm still not on top form but getting there slowly! Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know I havn't forgotton that I said there would be FAQs for other forums very soon ... just maybe not as soon as I had hoped!
