Would it be effective to identify the top 3 risks based on the non functional requirements in the assignment?
Also, do we need to do much documentation on these risks?


less than 150 words per risk shall be enough or even less than 100

whatever risk it can be but not too trivial!!
it's an easy exam indeed .....

I took part III on March 27, received email notice today. Exactly one month.
it's something like

int a, b;

b = (a+b)/2;
a = (b-a)/2;

above doesn't work, but it's something like that

seems like an entry level position ,the interview questions want to be funny, to make the company look smart and energetic

so ,the crap.

of coz it's ok for you. but they may not issue Java2 scea cert any more.

I think you need get them to reply to you, now we only submit Part II by email, if you simply send it to them, it may get failed.
is there still SCEA exam/cert for Java 2?

if no, even you can submit, they won't certify you as a Java EE 5 SCEA.

if yes, you might still be certified as Java 2 SCEA.

of coz it depends on your experience and other benefit

if you are foreigner, company is not necessary to pay you some extra money, call CPF, besides your salary.

anyway, 5400, is nearly twice of average singapore income. if they even take care of your housing, it's indeed a good deal.

Singapore working culture is quite ok, IT in bank may sometimes work up to 9-10 hours if schedule is tight, but im sure usually 8 hours is most common. it's quite dependent.

anyway, don't worry about working like crazy, there's definitely no such thing

living cost is not high, a lunch costs 3-5 S$

house rental may be as low as 500 for a single room, or as high as 2000++ for an apartment

I guess we all can't know whether they received or not.

I politely requested a reply when submitting. it's no use.

And it cant show in online exam database, only Part III can show...

let's hear what people subjectively say beyond objective numbers.

well, it's a Java forum, can't hear much of a opposite voice.

now its JavaFx. I donno if anything new has fallen in the market.
If yes, please update me folks!
And yeah... Java is seen across the globe.
It has survived with success and it will!
6 years now in the world of Java...
I am still a kid in this journey of learning Java & its technologies!


Nice cheering up.
I am early with my Journey as well, although having worked for 6 years, only 2-3 is with Java. And only in embedded device, not a good start for me.

arulk pillai wrote:I was a mechanical engineer till 1999. Changed my career to Java in 1999. Started contracting since 2002. To date never had trouble finding contracts. Java is used in various sectors like finance, insurance, telecom, retail, government, etc. It is predominantly used for

-- Building SOA based services.
-- Building Web applications
-- Integration via MQSeries, Webmethods, etc.

Newer systems are built with databases like Oracle, DB2, SQLServer, Sybase, etc. Older mainframe systems can be Web enabled using Java and message oriented middle-ware like MQSeries, WebMethods, TIBCO, etc. I have worked on a number of large enterprise projects.

Moving from being a mechanical engineer to a Java developer is the best decision I have ever made in my career. Engineering skills have certainly helped me a lot. I guess, I got into it at the right time.

Many companies have invested lots of money in Java, and I agree with Jesper.

Good experience and good decision !
From you and Jesper, it seems not hard/common to find freelance and outsourcing jobs with Java, and with large companies. Good luck!

don't worry that much, at least it's mutual, we need be careful with what a stranger share with us.

Jesper Young wrote:The success of Java is mainly in server-side software, running on big enterprise servers of a lot of companies all over the world.

I've been working as a Java software developer for the past 10+ years and I've worked for a number of different companies in different sectors, for example in the telecom, energy and transport industries. All those projects were for enterprise software running on big servers, and the software varied from web applications to mission-critical, high-performance middleware systems (i.e. systems without a GUI, processing data using databases and messaging) and also a large desktop application (using a Swing GUI).

I've been working as a freelancer since the beginning of 2009 and I haven't been out of work since I started for myself, despite the economic crisis. I did notice that the rates that companies are willing to pay have dropped in the past year, however. Still, I make a nice amount of money as an experienced Java developer.

I don't see the popularity of Java going down, Java developers are still in demand and I expect it to be that way for the forseeable future.

About your last question: Obviously I work at companies that have chosen to use Java. The Java world and for example the Microsoft .NET world seem to be quite separated. I see Java being used everywhere and don't encounter many .NET users, but I recently met a few .NET developers and they were asking me the opposite thing (why they only see .NET jobs and only few Java jobs).

Thanks, Jesper, your Java experience much richer than mine. thanks for sharing it.
Both .net and Java have spacious market, on individual developer level, one may easily neglect the other. And I hope profit-driven Oracle will not cut funding on Java evolvement.

I started working with Java in set top box development environment and maintaining one JSR. But recent years, not using Java at all.

So my experience with Java is all in embedded system. CE device.

Hope guys, we can share on these realistic questions:

Can we all share something about our Java work experience?

Where do you use Java/JEE? Do you work at a bank? Do you use Java to develop big enterprise system for big enterprise?

Is Java bringing you great wealth?

Do you find Java is expanding or shrinking around you?

What's your enterprise's attitude towards Java solution compared with other options?

another diagram:

so understand it in this way: in Humphrey Sheil's diagram, controller is a servlet, it's not using service locator (like in this, don't know from where diagram) but dependency inject to talk to manager classes

if there is any pattern here, it's DI only
