Hi,

I studied collection of objects for the first time...i'm confused. Could you please help with some resources and some good examples to study.

Thanks..

What exactly do you find confusing?

I am assuming you mean 'collections in java'. I found the tutorial on collections on sun's site to be reasonably good.

"sabrina kr",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

"Sabrina Kr"

Capitalizing your name doesn't really change the problem with it. Please do as Bear directed and correct it to match our naming policy.

My apologies... I clearly understood the naming policy for the website. Maybe I am not able to understand whats wrong with my display name or I am not making the changes in the right place. What I see as my display name is "Sabrina Kr" which is exactly who I am. I am sure I dont understand what could be wrong with this. Please guide...

Thanks

If your last name is indeed "Kr", then it's OK. It's just so rare to see a name that doesn't contain any vowels.

The naming policy requires that you use your complete last name and not an abbreviation. It also requires that it not be obviously ficticious. And since that are very few last names that do not have vowels, of which "kr" is not one of them, you are being challenged.

Please either provide materials to validate your last name, or change it.

Also, please consider this as your third warning.


[EDIT: Just did a quick last name search. Never mind my warning. Although, I can't say that you won't be warned by another moderator.]

Got it!!!

I was actually confused by Bear's remarks:
----------
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character,

I hope I got it corrected now...
