This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Ok, I've only past the scjp 2 weeks ago. I have not read anything about RMI or JDBC. I was planning to do it after my certification but then I got some general training that took up all my time. I wasn't planning on doing anything in java for month. I still have to study everything not covered in scjp. I don't know ejb, jsp, jdbc, or rmi. I did get a small introduction to ASP recently. Now here is my problem. My company heard about my scjp and sent me an email can you do this. I need some one to just tell me what languages I need to use and for what purpose. I need some kind of outline. Sence I'm short on time I want to know exactly what do I need to study before starting the project. What do I use the different tool and languages to do( for example "go learn jdbc and then connect to internet using script is asp page or you don't need jdbc at all here). Here is the assignement: A membership management system for about 1000 members of a club. I am envisioning sort of a Yahoo type interface for the club members, where members log in once from their computer, and don't need to log in again through a cookie. From there, they can view a personal calendar, club news, local/national news, stocks, etc. They can also view club membership information from a DB that would have how much they have spent at the club, reservations info, etc. The DB would have to be imported from their current system, which is running DOS. I don't know what type of DB they have. Keep in mind I don't have any java experience. I think if I had an outline I can somehow pull it off. If you have any example code that would be helpfull. But a simple outline or plan of attack would be great. Like do I have to use ASP or is jdbc enough and visa versa. I'm pretty sure RMI is unnecessary am I right? I hope this becomes good practice for some of you. And if would help me out a lot. This is my only chance at getting some java experience. Thanks so much Kourosh Keshavarzi
