I'm currently working on my B.Sc in computer science from a school that offers distance/independant learning. They are fully accredited. My rationale for this school rather than a traditional classroom setting was not cost (this school is not cheap!) but rather my need to keep a full time and support my family while I do this. I'm a little concerned that when I begin looking for a job, recruiters will look at my B.Sc as being inferior to one earned at a traditional school. Does anyone have a similar experience they can share, so that I can either be reassured, or otherwise at least know what I'm up against when I graduate? Any and comments are greatly appreciated.

I passed the SCJP this summer and would like to move to the next level. I'm looking for advice on which level that should be. 3 out of 5 job postings I see want some Oracle skills/experience. Does anyone suggest that the Oracle developer cert is the way to go? I don't read much about it here. Any advice on the merits of this cert versus SCJD would be greatly appreciated, along with any comments on how to begin to acquire Oracle skills and what employers are really looking for when they say "knowledge of Oracle". Thanks, everyone.
I'm a SCJP with some JSP, Servlet experience looking for full time Java related work. Every second job posting I see mentions Oracle to one degree or another. I would appreciate any suggestions that are out there about getting started. I would like to achieve a certification, but which one? I know a little about the JCert / Oracle cert but I'm not certain where to begin? Should I brace myself for the task of become an Oracle DBA, or is knowledge of JDeveloper sufficient?
Any books, courses or general information that someone can suggest will be grealy appreciated. I'm not afraid of alot of hard work, alot of reading and spending money where it's needed. Thanks.

I think I can help you (I'm pretty good with Javascript) but I don't understand the question very well. Can you elaborate, and then I will try to be of some assistance?

I had to read that about 4 times to understand whay you meant, but once I did I thought it was terrific! What a great idea, thanks so much!
I think I understand URI from the context, but what does it mean? Did you rather mean URL?

I have a peculiar problem I'm hoping someone can help with. First, let me explain how it works now and then I'll explain what the client wants to do differently.
I have a servlet which in it's init() method opens a single connection to a database. Each service() method uses this connection to run a query. The destroy() method closes the connection when the web server (JWS on Win2000) shuts down.
The client would like to run maintenance on the datbase every night and this requires exclusive use of the database. The only way to release the servlet's connection is to shut down the web server. Obviously, this is not ideal. Also, the client does not want the hassle of running a duplicate database for several reasons, not the least of which is the shear size of the files.
The client has asked for a GUI application that they can click on that closes the connection and causes web site users to see "Database down - please come back in 5 minutes" or a similar message. After maintenance, they can click on a button and resume normal operation.
Can this be done? Can I launch a GUI from a servlet's init() and have that GUI control the connection? If not, any other ideas? (I have a sneaky suspicion I'm missing something VERY obvious)
Your help is greatly appreciated!
