Good Idea. I am in NYC and jobless (hope not for long . Keep us posted.

It would be pointless if the java src code is available.
There is a document explaining the overall goal of the system, detailed use cases, use case diagram, domain object model etc.
Absolutely no coding is required, only UML diagrams.
Any reasonable format (gif, jpg, png) as long as it can be viewed in a browser.
cheers
To pass the test, you don't need to know the API level details. But if I am working with an architect, I would expect him to know atleast what is what, or he won't have my respect. So it is a personal choice.

Hi Guys,
I tried to get a copy of the book. Craig replied saying they got enough people for the beta (or alpha). So no point giving your email ids here, unless he changes his mind.
cheers
Mark,
Thanks for pointing me to the name issue (I don't necessarily agree with it, but I am sure it has been discussed to death).
I know people glorify their resumes one way or other. But my point is when interviewing for a job, the goal should be to determine if the person is capable of doing his job, rather than seeing if he can cram the whole Java API (or C++ API). I haven't been around long enough to know what your views on Certification are, but the way I look at it is proof that the person knows his basics. You think someone who can't recognize a Java sort routine (if it is written by someone sensible), can pass the SCJP?!
Well it is time to brush up on that swing API for tomorrow's interview

Hi all, I recently realized how much a certification is worth. I have over 5 years with Java, passed SCJP in 1998 and recently got laid off as part of down-sizing. Since then I have passed SCEAJ2EE Part I (mostly to set goals for myself).
I am taken by surprise when people interviewing me want to know what a servlet life cycle is or what a thread is. Mind you, these are not for entry-level positions or junior positions either.
So wondering if it is worth persuing further certifications.

Looking at the assignment, there is this credit card verification service which is drawn out in minute detail. From an architectural perspective is it important to go into this level. Would it be sufficient to present an architecture which can accommodate the service as presented.
Thanks
I would rather spend that dough on a little vacation. There are so many factors to scoring in an assignment like this and many are out of your control. I would be happy with any passing score. The important thing is what you learnt from the experience.
Enjoy your success!
Yes, J2EE uses JTA for transactions and since JTA supports distributed transactions, legacy apps, application servers, etc can involved in a single transaction.
Let me try to answer (I am no expert either)
1. Firewalls are meant to restrict access to networks or parts of networks while SSL is for secure communications (once the parties can communicate). So they have different purposes in life.
2. Yes it should be
3. VPN is not a secured connection between client and server, only the parts that go from the remote machine (client) to the VPN server (or the tunnel that goes over the internet is secure). The traffic from there to the destination (server) may or may not be encrypted. So if you still want to secure the entire communication you need to use SSL.
cheers
I am using MagicDraw now. Has anyone had any problems with MagicDraw. These are the tools I tried ( or tried to try .
1. Together : It is a week since I downloaded the eval version. I haven't recieved a license yet. What a waste of bandwidth!

2. Rational XDE : I tried it because I am very used to VisualAge and Eclipse. Though the interface is nice, it is very slow and I couldn't figure out how to export to XMI or gif (yes I can paste to paintbrush and save as jpeg/png). Also it is a 30 day eval, what happens to my diagrams after that.
3. MagicDraw : Java based, so somewhat slow, but the diagrams look very clean and the generated document is great. The license expires on Jan 1, 2003. I hope to be done with this assignment by then
