I think you're on the right track!

Concentrate on the objectives, go over topics you struggle with. Compile a bit of code and run it - just some simple examples, but you need to know the basics with regards to syntax, so make sure you have your looping structures and conditional statements down.

If you have any questions before going in, post them, and I'll try to respond quickly!

Best of luck!

Hi Mckenzie, thanks for response actually i was little bit confused with -classpath, -version, -d, -D, -d is used with javac where as -D is used with java right, -classpath & -version are used with both javac and java right.

Yup, I think you've got it.

Best thing to do is just open up a DOS prompt and compile and run a little HelloWorld.java program, and use those various options at the command line. Prove to yourself how each one works, and you won't forget it! I betcha that little exersice wouldn't take more than twenty minutes.

Good luck!

Before answering any of these I have to ask: where did you get these questions? Since you just took the exam I want to make sure you aren't posting questions from the exam, which is against JavaRanch policy.

In the mean time, a quick Google search should reveal the answer to #2, and I believe interfaces are convered in Cameron's books, so if you look in there for interface method declaration you should be able to figure out your question about methods in interfaces.

Indeed, JavaScript and HTML are not compiled.

Always quote your question sources! And don't be afraid to start a new thread. You'll get answers much faster that way.

As for the code questions, just write some code! See what compiles and what does not. That's the best way to learn. Then, if something doesn't make sense, we'll help you out with the 'why'.

Good luck!
