This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
and kesava, The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at "JavaRanch Naming Policy" . We require names to have at least two words (not just letters), separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. We want to get to know you as a Professional. Please choose a new name which meets the requirements and re-register. Cindy
