Hey Everyone,
Firstly, it was a real shame that some of the people have cricticised my site. I have worked very hard to get this material compiled and get in one place. I think if you go thorugh all the questions on the site then i can bet you'll pass the paper.
I admit that I've taken material from other sites but not all. I have my original work too. I should have also written down the authors name which was left out for which I'm really sorry to everyone and I promise that this will be rectified soon. As for Marcus Green no modification has made to its original form as Mr. Green had pointed out. I am updating my site very soon so please keep visiting the site for latest changes.
Thank You to everyone for appreciating the work.
Rahim.

If you feel that you have done hard work compiling the resources on your site.. then think about the hard work those people have put it to create it. I am glad that you have finally decided to give credit to the concerned person(s).

Hey,
I think your site is EXTREMELY helpful. It lists the mock exams and relevant materials in a very easy-to-navigate fashion.
However, I do agree with some people wanting credit for their own work.
Nonetheless, I applaud your efforts and even though I'd like to say I want to see justice by giving credit to the rightful owners, I personally just want to download the stuff no matter who it's from
Side question: what's the difference between the mock exams and the sample tests?

Rahim, you are doing the good job, don't worry about the critics from underachievers. Every java cert. website had copied material from others, if you don't believe me go ahead and compare.

Is there a problem with this site right now? All I get is a banner ad and a little Applet header for the page -- and nothing else except a blue background.

Speaking for myself, if you copied anything from my site without permission I would send some boys to your house to give you a serious talking to. First off it's against the law to copy copyrighted material without permission. Second, it's a real scummy thing to do. This type of behavior is normally limited to sewer rats and other low forms of life. If you want to make a collection of mock exams then the best thing to do is to supply a link to other people's hard work. How is Marcus supposed to maintain his mock exam and update it if it's on your site?! If Marcus needs to correct an error and corrects his own page, he's then going to get stuck naswering complaints from people viewing his obsolete site on your pages.
Even worse, you are running banner ads over other people's work. So you are trying to make money off the hard work of others! Talk about low-life!

Till now I was simply watching the discussion and was refraining myself from participating.For a long time I tried to be a saint, but now I cannot get over the urge for writing.
This behaviour may be acceptable in the part of the world you come from but is considered as theft in the country from which I come and I have been taught by my parents to condemn such things and I am proud to teach the same values to my kids.
I can almost be certain that all the people from whom you stole must have spent more time than you would even care to think of trying to put stuff together. I host my own website and I can
feel exactly what it would be to have some guy who has some knowledge of internet and html and lots of knowledge of dubious value, getting up one fine morning and publishing my work with his name stamped on it.
You have gone too far in the pursuit of overnight fame and if you call yourself professional then try to behave like one and earn your own credits. Just because your fellow brethren call it a good work does not mean anything.
I just want to keep it short since I have better things to do in life.
Moderators, If some body makes me angry, i tend to go overboard in replying to them. I apologize if that has happened here.

Hey Paul,
I am totally agree with your vivid insults to a mentality like Abdul holds. Although I do not agree with your comments about lower animals - beacuse lower animals like rats are very very honest in dealing with worldly affairs - don't agree, read Evelutionary Biology!!!
Anyway, Mr. Rahim's mentally should be stopped in whatever ways! This kind of ideas are the contaminats of the worlds and should be avoided even if it's a very helping materials. I request all the Java (is'a great language) minded people to uphold their ideals; it will certainly pay you in the end - trust me.

Ok guys, play nice .. we all make mistakes
Abdul has recognized the error of his ways and has promised to update his pages to credit those he borrowed from. Which, in my book, indicates he is not a 'low-life' but just another human being who unwittingly put his foot in his mouth
