Hi All,
i recently passed the scjp and was sending resume's out. Because of the recent situation in the market, it seems as though - if you dont have 5+ years of experience.. you simply cant be hired.
I went to consulting firm/school today and they offered me a class for (Java, C/C++, Perl, Oracle, Sybase, Unix combo). They mentioned that I need to get my feet wet with these other languages before I can break into Java. Do you think I should take such a course or do you think I should keep sending out my resume's to uninterested companies. I dont really want to do these other languages but at the same time I need experience! I just feel really discouraged and need some guidance.
Thanks in Advance

Hi All,
I recently passed the Java Cert Exam and I'm studying cover to cover from (Beginning Java 2 from Ivor Horton). I'm trying to gear up for a real job by doing practical examples from this book. Can you please tell me what I should do to gear up for a programming job. I don't want to get hired and feel like I dont know how to do anything!
Thanks in Advance

Can someone please help me. If its a classpath problem can you please let me know how to solve such a problem.

When you subclass a vector can you put primitives in it? (I know vectors only hold objects)Can you even subclass a Vector?
public class Subvector extends Vector
int i=5; //does error occur here?
public static void main(String args[ ])
Subvector sv = new Subvector( ) //does error occur here?
System.out.println(sv.i) //does error occur here?
Thanks in Advance

Yeah Definitely!!
Thanks Lam that really helped me clear up my concept about that topic. I was 90% sure that that was the answer but thanks for confirming it.

Hi Fellas,
The question goes as such:
What will be the result of compiling and running the following code be?
public class TestClass
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
int k = 1;
int i = ++k + k++ + + k;
System.out.println(i+""K);
}
}
The answer: The program compiles and prints 7 and 3
JQ+ comments that we must look at it like ((2)+(2)+(3)) = 7
End value of k is 3
Please help me with this concept!!
Thanks in Advance

How do you convert a decimal to hexidecimal or octal?
How do you convert a hexidecimal or octal back to decimal?
Example: how do you convert decimal 100?

1)When you declare a long variable without the (L or l) does it default to int?
long l = 255L; //OK!
long l = 255; //does it default to int?
2)When a constructor is private in class1 can you still subclass class1 with class 2 and use the constructor in class2 to access members in class1 or will there be an error?

Thanks in Advance!
Edmund
Thanks for the prompt reply
I appreciate it!!
=)
On page 155 the code goes as follows:
1)String str = new String(Size =" + x);
2)System.out.println(str);
3)str = null; //string object eligible for garbage collection after line 3 is executed

Middle of page:
"Normally all objects created for local variables in a method becomes eligible for garbage collection when method exits"
So I'm left with 2 conflicting statements:
1) objects are eligible for garbage collection after its declared null
2) objects are eligible for garbage collection when the method returns
So am I misreading this chapter?
Can someone please shed some light?
Thanks in Advance!
Edmund
