Great discussion and a great example by Eugene.
The concept of MVC seemed ever-elusive for me to grasp....but with this discusson things are very clear to me. When i get to design UI the next time, i will try to capitalize on the knowledge i gained today.
I think Poseiden UML is pretty cool for modelling and its easy to use also. I just happened to downlown this tool after reading this post, and iam glad to say that i was able to create a class diagram quite comfortably. The interface is very intuitive and i would say that its a very good tool , atleast for UML beginners like me.
Thanks for bring this tool to my notice.
I have had no luck with my job search since Sept 2001. Ever since i lost my IT job as java developer , I worked for a while in an Electronic store ...quit that and now i work as A Customer service person in a Bank. Iam looking for a IT job but nothing so far has brought me ne luck. Iam here in the silicon valley and i think its the most difficult place to find a new gig.
Looking forward for bright days to come back to the valley....

Everybody is clueless in this present job market buddy. As for entry-level jobs, atleast here in US i think its a remote possibility now.
I was wondering how is the job market in India. I heard a lot many companies are hiring now, as much of development work is being out-sourced to India on account of lower cost.
Doing a MS is definetly a good option....if not now in another 2 yrs when the market stabilizes u stand a real good chance.

Hey man,
There is no change in job scene at all for java ppl here in silicon valley. What ppl need now is specific skills ( like specific DB, specific Application server ) with years of experience in a particular domain. There is no demand at all for general web technologies- if u are a web developer like me , only luck and may be some strong contacts can get u a job or a project!

Hi John,
You are frustrated just after a month of job search.....what do say about me then?
I have been looking for a java job since the last 5 months. My company engaged in B2B development shut its doors after Sept 11. I have applied for jobs all over US since then, but i have had no reponse worth mentioning . Infact for java jobs that i have applied , i have none i can say.
Truly the market sucks and it sucks the hope out of you.....wonder when times will change!!

Hey John,
I must say that you have a real cool attitude. Nice to know that inspite of this adversity you are thinking of fishing. Thats the way your spirits should be.
Its good that the company is giving you a severance package. In my company where i was laid off last time, we were given one day notice with no severance pay.
Good luck for your job hunt.

In my opinion , that what the HR person meant was for the H1-B consultancy market for java. Yes, the market for java consultancy is down. Its not only java , but even for other skill sets.
Its a low time in US now,but things should look bright in a few months. The consumer confidence is up this month. So ,that should bring some glitter to the worn down market here in US.

Hi Jeff :
I was in a similar situation like you until last week. I am also in a junior level position and i was laid off 2 weeks back. But then luckily for me ,my previous client took me back on a new contract (but not sure how long it will last). So be positive, as life always springs up pleasant surprises and oppurtunities.
