Thanks Johnston for your revert.

Statistics: Advanced QC involves interesting correlations and Monte Carlo-style sampling, so people who do enjoy the world of hard-core statistics will have years of fascinating material to explore. :]

If any Analyst/Programmer in the field of financial analytics is reading this, you surely have received double icing on your cake.

It would be helpful if the authors would let us know whether mathematics, statistics is necessary in understanding quantum computing?
If yes, would like them to help us know the topics that need good understanding before we all deep dive into the world of qubits.

Tools like Pandas (used in Python), are really used on "small data" because they require 5-10 times the RAM:  

Modifying the URL link : Apache Arrow and the "10 Things I Hate About pandas"  since the URL  above does not work when period is included in the URL after last forward slash.

Anyways, thanks Noah for your reply.
What is the use of frameworks like Apache Spark and Kafka in AI? Can machine learning be learnt without the knowledge of Apache Spark and Kafka?
What are the advantages that anyone shall be having if he/she knows these frameworks in addition to libraries like NumPy, Pandas etc.?
Can this book help me in learning the introductory lessons in artificial intelligence with respect to fraud detection, algorithmic trading, underwriting etc. in finance industry ? If yes, does it explain the same using real-life scenarios?

Found the link :
This one is written by Mr. Tom Tolman.

One of the best and interesting articles for understanding layout managers.

Anyways, thanks folks for your support and suggestions.

Hi folks,

There was a wonderful small tutorial on the coderanch site about Java Swings that explained how simple elements like JPanel, GridBagLayout, TextBoxes can be created. Unfortunately, I tried searching over google, on the coderanch site but no luck. Can anybody help me with the link...Note that the tutorial was an old one but gave a good conceptual knowledge about Java Swings for beginners. Thanks.

Hi Vinay,

Welcome to Ranch!!

There is nowhere mentioned in Java docs how much size a reference variable shall consume. It is implementation dependent. Reference variables, if referring to objects contains a bit-pattern that represents a way to get to the object on the heap. In case of primitives, it simply contains bits representing that value.

Local variables are not assigned any values by default unlike instance variables. So, there is no way they can return any value.

1) Can I use myapp.mytags instead of 'mytags' in the following code? If yes, do you need to make any changes?

--> Yes. You simply need to make a directory with name as 'myapp' where the properties files shall be placed.

2) How does Java runtime find the .properties files? Is it related to importing it or the system PATH?

--> You don't need to import anything. The Java runtime searches for the directory 'myapp' from where the application was started.
Hi Mala,

Here's the reply to your above question:

And yes, this is getting interesting!!
Thanks Mala. The animated explanations along with colour highlights are something new that help remember concepts with ease.
Hi Mala,

Does OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification Guide help the programmer to know about design patterns which are part of syllabus for OCP 7 certification? Is it providing explanation with examples about regular expressions that any programmer should be knowing who intends to be OCP 7 ?

If anything that is new in OCP 7 that I may have missed out & the same is being covered by your guide, please feel free to inform us regarding the same.

I'm a Java developer with almost 4 years of experience. I'm currently working in the capital markets side of finance domain and wish to continue my journey in the same field.

While going through the job advertisements (for Algorithmic Trading) from companies with the above mentioned background, I saw many wanted Java developers with strong knowledge in "Data Structures and Algorithms".
Now do these companies expect the desired candidate to know how to work with Tree/Graph/Heap or do they mean that the developer should know how to make correct use of Collections from java.util.* package?

As per my understanding, a Java developer does not need to code at the very basic level, all thanks to vast library provided by the language developers and therefore, can concentrate on the business logic. He only needs to understand how to use the library features.

Ranchers, feel free to share your experience if the interviewer has asked you to write code for HashMap, Binary Tree, 2-3-4 Trees, Graph etc. during any of your interviews.
