B&S GUI doubt!

Hi all!!

I've just received my instructions and it will be the Bodgitt and Scarper system.
I'm really uncertain if my GUI is good, and respecting the instructions, and I'd like you guys help me, checking if it's all right!

My main GUI will have:

Search options:
-> "Name" text field
-> Two radio buttons, for "and" or "or" (search options) linking "name" and "location"
-> "Location" text field
-> A select box, with the options "All","Booked", "Free" to restrict what will be searched.

The JTable, where the columns will be sortable and you can select just one row.

Two buttons, "Book" and "Liberate" for the seleted row. When you click in book, a popup will show so you can digit the customer ID. When you click in liberate, you the contractor will not be booked anymore.

Is everything ok? And since english is not my first language, are "free" and "liberate" the best words to use in these fields??

Thanks!!

Your GUI contains more than requested, but has all the required parts.

I would use "All", "Booked" and "Available". For the buttons I would keep it really simple and use "Book" and "Unbook".

Good luck!

And if I may ask, which course have you followed (or will you follow) to meet the mandatory course requirement?


SCJA, SCJP (1.4 | 5.0 | 6.0), SCJD

Thanks for the suggestions Roel De Nijs!
Well, I'm deciding between "Java SE 7 New Features" and "Java SE Performance Tuning", but it will probably be the Java 7 new features, once the other one is almost three times more expensive...
do you have any suggestions?

Thanks again!!

Hi Lucas!
It depends on your plans.
If you decide to stop at achieving only OCMJD than you can choose between mentioned cources. I would prefer Java SE Performance Tuning.
But what if you decide to continue your studies and to achieve OCMJA? In this case I would recommend
to consider cources that are on the cross of cources required for OCMJD and cources required for OCMJA.
For example, Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML (OO-226). I took that one myself recently.

Good luck!

Yes good idea! I am indeed interested in achieving the OCMJA. And I agree that "Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML" is a good option, but unfortunately there's no virtual class for it and I don't think they have any classes here in Brazil. I'll find out.

Thank you!

Yeah, try to find it out, because I do really believe that LVC is a contry-independent way to reach mandatory requirement!

Hi,

VLC is country independent. But keep in mind, that you can't just take any class. Prerequisite for Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML (OO-226) is Java Programming Language, Java SE 6 (SL-275-SE6), wich is realy basic stuff. Classes are like certifications, you have to start at the bottom.

Ragards,
Martin

Hi Martin!
Decision of taking LVC or not depends on your Java background. If you already have basic notion of Java, why should you start from the bottom?
Recommended doesn't mean mandated. And also pay your attention on the class's price!
Albeit, if you have a sponsor the price is not so important
You may look briefly on the LVC content to decide whether you take it or not.

Best regards,
Dmitry

Hi Dmitry,

that's the catch, Java programming Language is a required prerequisite for UML course. Check the page link I posted and look for Required Prerequisites section. Personally I don't mind (too much) taking a class, but taking an entry class seems unecessary =/

Well,Well,Well!
Each day brings something new
You're right! It became the mandatory requirement now.
But the 2 months ago it was not so!
So with that said, you have to take it now!

US$ 2,250 for a course with contents that I obviously know, since I have the OCMJD, and more US$ 2,250 ?
Yeah, I think I'll choose a cheaper option! haha
thanks!
