Hi everyone
I am new to javaranch...however i have been reading many posts and i would like to thank all of u for the good posts that come up...

I am currently preparing for SCJP 1.4 exam. I would like to know whether only Khalid Mughal's book is enough for the preparation or do i need to refer to other books as well.

Also i would like to know which are the good books for JSF.

Thanks

"darshan engineer",

We're not the most rigid bunch in the world here at the JavaRanch, but we really prefer that people use their real names or something like that. Please check out our Naming Policy.

I recommend the JSF In Action book from Manning Publications, btw. Also fo a good quick intro, google for IBM's "JSF for Nonbelievers" DeveloperWorks series.

This is not SCJP Forum. Anyways, in addition to Khalid Mughal you can go for
Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide
.

Books on JSF:
JSF In Action is your best bet.
Core Java Server Faces a good one.
In addition you should refer to http://www.jsftutorial.com/

Quite true, and I almost moved it over there for that reason.

The fastest way to get a question answered is to post it in the forum most closely related to the question. We don't charge by the post, so it's OK to ask 2 questions in 2 separate forums.

Asking the same question in 2 different forums (cross-posting), however, is guaranteed to annoy us.

And you always get answers faster when you don't use a fake name!

Tim,
I dont know why Darshan has not responded to the above post. But incidentally "Darshan" as well as "Engineer" are both valid (and to an extent common amoungst Parsis) first and last names, respectively, in India. And there are lots of such lastnames that are derived from the profession a person used to do, generations generations ago.

Though I cannt still vouch that its his real name.

Really? Adopting surnames from professions (Smith, Miller, Farrier, etc. ) was not uncommon in Europe, but the practice pretty well died out before engineering became a profession. And, of course a German would be "Schmidt" instead of Smith, reflecting the local language.

If this were an accounting forum and someone used the name "Montreal Ledger", we'd be just as incredulous. It happens, but it's a statistical stretch.

We're just trying to maintain the illusion that we're a bunch of highly competent and respectable professionals here. It's all the more challenging since in an international forum, you get all sorts of names even before people start making them up.

Not I have to leave town to find puzzlement. Locally, a popular name is "Thigpen". What are Thigs, why do they need to be confined, and what exactly does a pen for Thigs look like?

Hi everyone

Actually my name is perfectly according to the rules.
Darshan means vision in sanskrit
and Engineer is a surname of many Indians. In fact we have surnames like contracter,etc as well. Unfortunately u didnt understand that.

Also i did not feel that i should waste my time on such silly issues.

Regarding the question. yes that was a mistake. it was supposed to be placed in the appropriate forum. but got placed here wrongly.
