Hi Tom,

i know i have to go to setting and to control panel to set up something related to the driver,i do not remember how to do it.


You remember correctly. You will have to go the control panel -> 32 bit ODBC drivers and then create a System DSN called moh this will register the ODBC data source and your program then should give the expected output.

They already have a database set up all I got to do is
connect to it. So I think I might get away with using
just asp or jsp and forgetting the jdbc. Maybe just
pass the data as parameters to the java programs.
But just to be sure I am going to spend the next couple of day
studying jdbc just to fugure out what the point of it and
what can be done with or with out it. As far as using jsp or asp
well since there are both more or less the same thing if my client insists on using asp then I'll just use it. What difference could it make. Specialy if I only end up setting
cookies and connecting to the database.


YOU WOULD NEED JDBC AT SOME POINT IN THE PROJECT OR OTHER.. So start learning that. I don't know any way to connect to a database in java without using jdbc.


But I think I'll be o.k. Just as soon as I figure out
what I'll use for what the rest is just details
and learning the basic syntax and learning to work with
new objects.
Who know maybe mohit is right, may be I can get away with
lots of copy and paste.


You bet you are going to be OK. We are doing a JSP/JDBC/Java project at office right now. I may not be able offer yo uany code, but I sure can give any pointers available to me. if you need some help, mail me at spatkar@techie.com, and I will see how I can help.
All The best,
Shubhangi.

Eric,
I was given two laminated sheets of A4 size and a whiteboard marker. I could use both the sides, and though I did not require it, I suppose, I could have wiped the sheets clean and started over again.
Do you have a specific center where you want to write you exam? Maybe you could go there and check up, because I have a feeling that the laminated part of my story might vary from center to center.

Hi Kourosh,
This is my take on your problem:
You would need to study jdbc for anything where you use Java and a Database. You can check out the tutorials available on Java Developer Connection site or Try searching Gamelan. If the money permits, get a good book on JDBC. O'Reilly has some good stuff, so does the AW-Sun Books. You would need to be very clear on what type of legacy data is available, and what is the new database you are going to use, How are you going to transfer this old data to the new database. A lot of constraints would come for your new database design. So before any thing else, get this part cleared up. If it is running on dos they might be using either foxpro or dBase, which should be OK. Flat files might give you a little trouble when transferring data to an RDBMS.
Second: You would need to break up the whole functionality in various modules and then design the JSP pages and the backend logic for these. If you know ASP, you are atleast somewhat knowledgeable in this area. There are lot of JSP books out there, I found the Professional Java server Programming and Proffesional JSP (both By Wrox) to be good books. Take any one that you like First is an all-in-one for Java server technologies, second concentrates more on JSP.
I don't think you need RMI.
For JSP Try using Tomcat and Apache combination for the web server side, freely available, widely supported, and proven. Go to www.apache.org for any further details.
Search net, I am sure you would get code meant for Login, Calenders, News and stock tickers, Probabably You may have to write the code meant for club membership mgmt, but any decent piece of code that shows you how to get the data from a database and display is in a proper format on a web page can be tailored to do the job. You don't specifically need Java expericence for this kind of CPCC (Cut-Paste-Copy Code)job Whatever you have learnt as scjp, should let you manipulate the basic code.
I hope I have been able to help without sounding a know-all ,
Shubhangi.

AFAIK, It Does, both dimensions. Pls refer to Khalid Mughal / API Docs for Further details (I did not study CardLayout that well )

Hi Ritu, and Pavan,
I cleared My SCJP with 77%.(refer to my earlier post in the same thread). I had studied reasonably seriously for nearly 6 weeks and played around with java for 2 months. I have an programming background, but I was running against a deadline.
My advice to u both:
If the percentage are really important, make sure you get more than 95% in mocks, but probably by now you would have gone through atleast 7-8 ones(an approximation). What happens later on is that you start scoring not because the concepts are clear but because you know the questions. At least that is what I saw happening to me towards the end
Make very sure that your fundas are crystal clear. I would include following objectives in it:
1. Declarations and Access Control
2.Flow Control and Exception Handling
3.Operators and Assignments
4.Overloading, Overriding, Runtime Type and Object Orientation
5.Language Fundamentals(except event Listeners)
What I have found is that the difficulty level for real exam questions is much higher for these than that found in mocks. For rest of the topics, the difficulty level is nearly same. Lots of coding should help. Esp. If you take a working code and then twist it around to see which variations work and which don't. and why they don't. That will help like nothing else.
The questions that I encountered were not tricky or extra long, but they were worded in such a way that only if you had your concepts very clear, then you could answer them.
The exhibit button/window is not that distracting. In fact you can use the "Tile" button in the exhibit widow to tile both the windows horizontally on the screen, Question window goes on top, and code below. so you can scroll and read both at the same time.
Time should not be a problem. If you keep an eye on time and mark the questions where you are taking more than a minute, you will be able to solve most of the questions in time enough to go back and preview the marked questions. Remember, all the questions have same weightage, so if you find yourself spending more than a minute on any question, mark it and come back later. The next question might be easier and ensure your passing
Thanx for going through this extra long post...
HTH and all the very Best
Shubhangi
Hi Maha,
Though this is not exactly a list of mocks , I came accross this link where there are some
practice questions available :
http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Orchard/9362/java/javacert/

This site contains links to many mocks and the various questions submitted to this site.
Also following links might be useful:
1. http://www.4tests.com: Select the "computer exams" on the Top Right Box to find the JAVA Mock
2. http://www.examcram.com/studyresource/qod/ : Subscribe to this service to get a question
in the mailbox daily. The site has a facility where u can also have the answer posted to you the next
day.The answers are clear and the explaination thorough.
All of the resources above are free, but The last two links require that you register at their site.
Of course Registration is free , and I have not received any kind of junk mail from either of them
as opposed to one site being advocated actively in this forum.
Glad to be of Help,
Shubhangi.

faisal mahmood,

I have the older Simon Robert book. I would like to know if the newer edition is needed for the revised SCJP2 exam. What are the differences?


If you have the RHE for Java 1.1 then u may need to buy another good book, but the earlier version of the RHE for JAVA 2 is OK.

Also, is the SCJP2 exam tested on the java specification or some other book?


???

I have read somewhere that Sun's JDK is not 100% compatile with Java specification but jikes is. Is this true?


AFAIK, Jikes is 100% JLS compliant.
Saumil,
Jikes is a Java compiler from IBM. for more info go to: http://www10.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/jikes/project/

Hi all of you,
Thank you very much for sharing my joy....
Yes I am in process of putting togather my notes( ), my favourite URLS and links to the sites that helped me most for all my colleauges in my present company, and this extended family.
Give me a little time and I will put everything up on web for everyone to access, and either post a new thread or if I complete the stuff fast enough, put the link here. In the meanwhile I AM sticking around to lend a hand to anyone who needs it...
ciao,
Shubhangi.
