Thanks Guys...that made it clear.
Can someone please help me out with this peice of code from Dan Chisholms mock test.

class JMM110 {
public static void main (String[] args) {
int j = 0;
do for (int i = 0; i++ < 2; )
while (j++ < 2);

The result of compiling and running the code is


How are we supposed to interpret the do-while and for loops?
Are both the for loop and print statement nested inside the do-while loop or the do-while applies only to the for statement?
nice score.

running the code gives an output of


since only the statement

s += "here"; has been assigned to a reference variable, the string 'hellohere' is printed while the result of all the other
operations are lost(not reffered to by any variable).

Can someone please help me out with this peice of code..

class Red {
public int a;
public static int b;

public static void main (String[] in)
Red r1 = new Red(), r2 = new Red(); //line 1
r1.a++; r1.b++; //line 2
System.out.print(r1.a+", "+r1.b+", "+r2.a+", "+r2.b); //line 3

compiling this program and running it gives a result of
1 1 0 1.
my question is, in the line marked as line 2, how can we access the instance variable 'a' from a static context?
'b' should be fine since it is declared as static.

thanks in advance.

Hi Sameer,

1. Sun needs more certified professional as they are targetting future market.
2. The exam is made easy as never before.
3. Exam objective + Good guidelines from any certification books + few mocks and trying basic codes gives you enough expossure to attempt the level of questions asked.
4. You don't need to be very hardworking or great programmer to be sun certified thought it makes the process easy.

Does this mean that the standard of the exam has come down lately?will the certification carry the same weightage on our resume as it used to?

1 final int a=1;
2 final int b;
