Hi, all:
Is there a compiler that generates genuine executables native to the operating system (e.g. win32 exe files that do not require a JRE)? Is there a free one? I found some compilers but they actually require a JRE, that, to me, really defeats the purpose. I want to create some applications that will run without the installation of the JRE so I can distribute them to any user.
Thanks,
Howie

I did a search on Amazon, there are two versions of the book, one is by Ben Forta himself, "ColdFusion MX Web Application Construction Kit", the other one is by Ben Forta et. al. "ColdFusion 5 Web Application Construction Kit (4th Edition)", I suppose you are referring to the former?
Charlie:
I think I will start with the "definitive guide".
Thank you both for the timely replies.
Howie
Hi, all:
Could you please recommend some Javascript and Coldfusion books?
Thanks,
Howie
Simon:
If you could email it to me that would be great. My email address is howiewu@yahoo.com. I don't think Sun would mind, because this stuff is already available to the public, just not separately from the whole SDK bundle.
Thanks a lot!!!

Simon:
That's pretty sad, isn't it? Especially for somebody who only has Windows 98
If you (or anyone on this site) has a copy of the API documentation only zip, could you upload it to the web so I could download it? I know this is a lot to ask for, but I'd really appreciate it!
Howard
Thanks, Craig.
I knew that I could view the API documentation on line, what I wanted was a copy that I can view off line.
Thanks anyway.
Howard
Hi, all:
I have a problem here. I only have Windows 98 at home (Arrgh!), and I couldn't install the J2EE SDK. What I really need is the J2EE API documentation. But I spent hours searching on Sun's website, they don't seem to have a bundled J2EE API doc set (such as a zip or jar file). The only way to get the API documentation set seems to be from the SDK full installation.
So, can somebody please kindly point me to a place where I can download the API doc set (either 1.3 or 1.3.1 is fine).
Thanks a lot in advance!
Howie
No I still haven't got any emails from them. But I was checking their website everyday.

I believe I uploaded on 4/7 and took part III on 4/11 and go my results on 4/29. But I know that different people have different experiences
Thanks again for all the responses. Here's my experience:
I kept my class diagram and component diagrams simple. I only had about 15 classes in my class diagram. I submitted multiple component diagrams, each containing about 4 or 5 components. I am not sure why I got such low score on the sequence diagrams, because I actually spent more time on the sequence diagrams more than anything else. However, as I was examining the sequence diagrams, I was able to spot some flaws in my class and component diagrams (or the whole design for that matter). So all is not lost. I only wish I explicitly addressed some of the issues that were asked in Part III, that way I would not have to worry . My "assumptions" section did not cover a great deal of details (I did address some of the design issues), specifically, I did not mention anything about the use cases (maybe that's why I got low score on the sequence diagrams).
Overall, my suggestion is: keep things simple. But I understand different testers may have different scorers, so your mileage may vary (no pun intended).
Howie
OK, it looks like I worried about nothing. To be sure, I was confident about my diagrams, it's just that I didn't explicitly address some of the issues asked in part III. Anyway, now I can take a vacation :-)
Thanks to all who helped me.
Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 42
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 39 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 7
Thank you very much, Bagwan!
You brought up a good point: they may have done it intentionally to verify the authenticity. I hope your congrats in advance brings me good luck!

I, for one, took Part III seriously. I thought it was an integral part of the whole exam, and even more tightly coupled with part II. I am not so much upset as what questions were asked, I am upset with the way the questions were asked. That is, by asking these questions the way they did, they kinda took away the flexibility we might have had in our design.
If they just asked "why do you think your design is strong in xxx area", or "how do you think your design would perform in xxx area", that is fine. But when they ask "what specific mechanism did you use in your design", they really left you with no choice.
Howie
I just took part III less than an hour ago. I am very upset with the questions asked. I feel that I was not given a fair chance. Without giving away the questions, let me explain: there were 4 questions. One was: which mechanism did you use for xxx? another was why did you use such mechanism for xxx (refering to the previous question). And another one was: what did you do to achieve yyy? I am upset because xxx and yyy are not explicitly mentioned in the assignment. The assignment only required us to draw a class diagram, a component diagram and sequence or collaboration diagrams for the use cases, plus a list of assumptions. So in my upload, I did not address xxx and yyy. So how am I supposed to answer "why did you use such mechanism for xxx"? I did not even say I used xxx for God's sake! It would be more appropriate for them to ask me: why do you think your architecture will be able to achieve zzz goals (in fact the other question is of this type, which I am OK with). So in the end, I had to put some "disclaimers" in my answers such as "I didn't address this problem in my assignment, but I would ... ". This is very silly. I feel like Sun is not taking these questions seriously. I know these questions basically are to test our understanding and how we would justify our design decisions, but at least they should word these questions better.
Howie
Since I already cleared part I (and am working on part II), I was wondering if it's worth getting the book just for part II. My local bookstore doesn't have it in stock yet.
Mark: since you have this book, can you tell me if it covers part II well enough to be worth getting it?
Thanks,
Howie
