Paul,
Any plans to start a BEA developer certification forum in Javaranch?. Weblogic is widely used and I know few Javaranch participants have expressed interest in it. I am trying to findout more information on this certificate test.
Thanks
Raj

I think it is a possibility.
Is the forum type stuff at BEA kinda lame? Or do they even have any forum type stuff?
You would be the moderator?

As the sheriff suggests, you could always try the BEA newsgroups.
It's probably better to read them directly from BEA rather than another site such as deja.com: try the news server newsgroups.beasys.com
I don't think the BEA forums are lame at all. Sometimes quite mind-boggling, but then I suppose you have to expect that from BEA :P

I posted to the BEA newsgroups. Because of firewall issues, it took me about two hours to ask one question. (deja said it existed, but when I sent my post it claimed it did not exist)
I'm happy to create a forum here if somebody is willing to moderate it so it can get a healthy start.

Oh.
I haven't had any problems with direct posts to their newsgroups.
It's just that lots of the BEA support people and engineers are said to lurk in those newsgroups so it can be fruitful...
Does the moderator need to be a guru in the newsgroup subject? or can mere mortals do it?

Paul,
I wanted to respond to your first posting earlier. But I was waiting for response from BEA. Just today they responded to couple of my mails.
I am just a beginner in Weblogic. So I don't think I can help others much. I think a moderator should have good experience and knowledge in the subject. I am a beginner in Weblogic arena. So I will be a participant for a while.
The BEA professional developer exam fee is $200.00. One can download the Weblogic server with the update package and very easily install and run. You get a document that clearly says which files and which part to change. policy, property and sh files to be changed. Also, one can use Ed Roman's EJB book to play around. Couple of books will be published in October/November time frame. Goto Amazon.com and search for Web Logic and you will get the books name. At BEA site you get information about the certification. No sample questions or mock exam. So you are on your own. Hope this helps.
Thanks
Raj

A moderator does not need to be an expert. But for a new forum, a moderator does need to build traffic in the first week. This means that if nobody posts to the forum, you need to post a question or two a day for a week to help the forum get started.

If you're looking for a moderator, I'm happy to volunteer. I have some experience of WLE and WLS, although I am by no means an expert. I'd like to give it my best shot though.

Joshua,
You might want to repost your question to the weblogic servers forum.
You might also want to check out this link cuz on the ranch, a single letter for a last name just doesn't cut it.

hi! well U will have to adjust the classpath in the startweblogic.cmd file that should help. more over you will have to adjust the weblogic jsp properties in the weblogic.properties file..
well in the .cmd file adjust the java_classpath and the weblogic_classpath entries to point to your classes,
to run the jsp files adjust the weblogic.properties file so that the working directory is set to that where you desire it to be.
it works i ve tried the same.
all the best

"gkasinath", check out www.javaranch.com/name.html
Out of curiosity - when you registered, you did see the rule about names, right?
The reason I ask is that we still get lots of people not following the name rule and I'm having a hard time understanding why.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
