Hello All- Currently studying for Java 2 Programmer's Exam. Reading Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide, Second Edition. Chapters 11, 12, and 13 cover Components, Painting, and IO respectivly. These chapters all start by saying that the information in each one "does not directly address topics that are explicitly mentioned in the Java Certification Exam objectives, but is essential to a full understanding of the subjects you need to know for the exam." Some questions on practice exams have questions about IO and components and painting. Will these topics be on the Certification Exam? Am I being misled by the book? Should I know these topics by heart just like I should know casting, overriding, etc?
hi Ramesh I/O will definately be in the in fact going on the posts around here you can expect around 1/2 dozen questions on the topic I am doing the Sun practice exam and here are the objectives in their to give some idea The java.awt PACKAGE - Objective 8.1 Write code using component, container, and LayoutManager classes of the java.awt package to present a GUI with specified appearance and resize behavior, and distinguish the responsibilities of layout managers from those of containers. The java.awt PACKAGE - Objective 8.2 Write code to implement listener classes and methods, and in listener methods, extract information from the event to determine the affected component, mouse position, nature, and time of the event. State the event classname for any specified event listener interface in the java.awt.event package. The java.io PACKAGE - Objective 11.1 Write code that uses objects of the file class to navigate a file system. The java.io PACKAGE - Objective 11.2 Write code that uses objects of the classes InputStreamReader and OutputStreamWriter to translate between Unicode and either platform default or ISO 8859-1 character encoding and distinguish between conditions under which platform default encoding conversion should be used and conditions under which a specific conversion should be used. The java.io PACKAGE - Objective 11.3 Select valid constructor arguments for FilterInputStream and FilterOutputStream subclasses from a list of classes in the java.io.package. The java.io PACKAGE - Objective 11.4 Write appropriate code to read, write and update files using FileInputStream, FileOutputStream, and RandomAccessFile objects. The java.io PACKAGE - Objective 11.5 Describe the permanent effects on the file system of constructing and using FileInputStream, FileOutputStream, and RandomAccessFile objects. You can check the SunEd site for further clarification All the best Jim
