A few Thank yous follow
I would like to thank everyone who has posted on this forum, without which the SCJD certification would have been so much harder.

Thanks to Robert Perillo for his posting showing his test cases for deadlocking. I adapted this for B&S and it really helped me get a max score in this area.

Thanks to Andrew and Terry for their excellent SCJD book which really helped me to get started.

Many thanks to Kathy and Bert and their co-authors for the fantastic Heads First books which have helped me digest some of the more perplexing
areas of Java and also for making me laugh while studying (a rare gift indeeed ).

Last and not least thanks to Ken Krebs whose article concerning the SCJD assignment was an inspiration to me and his posts with regards to
networking when I was completely stuck on the project helped me to move forward.

I will post some details of what I did on the forum tomorrow, tonight I will celebrate.

Thanks Kevin.
