I just started learning Java, besides learning from books and participate in Cattle Drive, I'd like to volunteer my time (about 5 hr/week) to a real-world project to enhance my understanding and gain group development experience.

Please PM me if you need someone to code or have any recommendations.

Thank you.

Would you be willing to purchase SQL Server 2005, Developer Edition? It is about $50 USD.

Would you please describe your project? I don't mind spending $50 (SQL is a good skill set on my resume anyways), but I'd like to know more before I commit time and money. Thank you.

PS. Can SQL 2005 Express do the job?

Thank you. Transact-SQL is the SQL dialect of SQL Server. Our application uses Hibernate for saving data to the database. We use Transact-SQL stored procedures and straight JDBC for displaying data from the database.

In regards to SQL Server Express, we use services not available with this edition. Moreover, all developers need to use SQL Server 2005, Developer Edition.

Please send a text copy of your resume in the body of an email to:

potomacmarket@gmail.com

Please do not send any file attachments with the email. We will send more details about our project upon receipt of your resume.

We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Did you have a chance to look at my resume?

Thank you. We have reviewed your resume.

We are currently analyzing how we can work with you. This is a challenge. Our project will eventually produce a software product. The source code is proprietary and copyrighted. Due to these factors, we are not able to distribute the EAR files for the application and services. We also would not be able to distribute the DDL file for the database.

We may be able to send you requirements and design specifications. This would provide you with some experience of which you are seeking. We are still working on this.

Thanks again for following up and your interest.

I don't know if this will help, but I can sign a NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement) to protect your product. In my University, all graduate students sign this to protect the intellectual properties and other proprietary information of the research sponsors. Because of this practice in school, I fully understand and exercise fully the ethics and responsibility of a project participant.

I just want to follow-up with this volunteer opportunity. If there is anything that I can help, please let me know. Thank you.

I think this conversation has reached the stage where it should be considered private; I suggest it would be better continued by e-mail rather than where everybody on the Internet can read it.
