My name is Scott and am currently studying to take the OCAJ 5/6 with aspirations of taking the OCAJ 7. What part of the programming process do you find the most gratifying, brainstorming in psuedo code, coding and compiling, or the successful implementation of the final product? Being a lightweight programmer I found the following article online to be quite interesting and above my current knowledge of OOP, "Strategic Directions in Object-Oriented Programming" by RACHID GUERRAOUI. What do you believe is the next evolutionary step of Java and its OOP capabilities? At least I kept the first question simple! Thanks for the time and Go Johnny Football!
