I think KANBAN makes planning process visible, adaptable in the way that traditional project planning process can not offer.
看板 = KANBAN, borrowed from Chinese character and meaning too. 看 means watch, look, see, visit. 板 means board, can be blackboard, whiteboard, writing-pad to put, lay on, hold on things. I think the Japanese still uses the original Chinese character. This is only one instance, there are many. Japanese language borrow many other language characters too, e.g. Roman, English, Russian and etc. You can see this culture embrace others' good, and open learning attitude. Good and hard part is that they integrate as their own unique culture eventually and innovate, produce high quality results.

That's why I say a simple yet powerful tool!

I am an Agile Practitioner. And I am very glad to see your book on Kanban. It provides lots of insight into a simple yet powerful and effective software development practice. Born in the East culture, I embrace Kanban naturally. This word 'KANBAN' in Chinese character literally means "Watching on the Board", that tells a lot something (sticky notes) on board needs attention. This KANBAN, accessible/visible to the working team, is a powerful tool for a small workshop to keep tracking WIP (work done in process/progress), reducing any delay in process, bottleneck and such to a smooth, efficient delivery of high quality finished product. In an age of rapid change, software development process cope with challenges as business and technologies evolves, this approach can be a excellent tool to keep entire team well informed, best assuring value deliveries to customers/clients.
Congratulations!

I completed SCWCD and feel this forum has helped me, starting from SCJP all the way. I believe most of you would agree that there is no such a wonderful website like this for learning and exchange of expertise. You come here as an expert, new learner... all benefit...

Hi Shalu/Chao-long:
As one of our Java educator pointed out, 1.4 has lower passing score 52% than 1.2 (61%), fewer questions, but by no means easier than 1.2. For most people, it's much harder for the reason to lower the passing score. Again, all depends on what direction you are heading towards, SCJD or SCWCD both require SCJP2 (no matter 1.2 or 1.4). Lots of people have prepared for 1.2 and have passed 1.4. If you have the level of depth, AND familiarize yourself with new objectives (make sure you do understand thoroughly) for 1.4, you can choose to take 1.4. But again, it's harder than 1.2 for most people (especially when you are not coding heavily).
Hope it helps,

Congratulations on you, John!
Certainly worth your effort. The Prometric lady told me very few passed the SCJP test. You can see the challenge.

Hello, sheriffs, ranchers, greenhorns...
Thanks for providing this wonderful site for Java learners. It is more than just for the certification! I did not know Kathy till recently. She did such a wonderful job for everyone who are interested in Java. Dan, my humble way of expressing my sincer thanks for your mocks and others. You guys are there, always welcoming new learners. Like Kathy said, those who come to this site are lucky to experience the handy, most patient, and even "world-class Java experts".
Blessings to you all for helping disseminating knowledge!
I came to this site more than one year ago after I took Sun's online course. I was recommended by a friend.
As a C++ teacher, I, like VB or any other programmers, often forget that Java works very differently. I failed this test one year ago. I purchased the voucher one year ago, and posponded again and again... for work, family obligations, babies...
I used "A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification"
by Khalid Azim Mughal, Rolf Rasmussen and Exam Cram as my Java Bible, this site as my best teacher whenever I need and selected mocks to practice.

What if we change the statement when i is 7 and 8 just as
continue rather than continue outer and
break instead of break outer?
would the result be the same or what will make this different?

Thanks, Ron!
Is there any actual tutorial about hashcode? More code examples of overriding hashcode().
