Calling validate() should cause the frame to lay out all of it's components again.

Does anyone here have experience using custom fonts with FOP? I've got a java program that uses FOP to create a pdf file via an xsl transformation. There is a specific font that I have to use. I've created the font metric files and a userconfig file just like the documentation states. I've also loaded the config file in my code using the org.apache.fop.apps.Options object. When I reference the new font in my xsl and try to run it the java console (Eclipse) states that it is an unknown font and will use the default instead. I'm on a tight deadline; any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm receiving the exception [Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC]Unexpected end of escape, line 0 offset 0.

I'm using a CallableStatement to call a Stored Procedure with four parameters; Integer, String, String, Integer. I've checked what is being passed to the Statement to fill the parameters and the data looks fine. I've looked high and low and I can't find any information on what the cause of this exception may be. Does anyone have any experience with it? Thanks.
I've got a panel (we'll call him "George") that contains relationships to several child panels (we'll call each of them "Junior"). Each of these child panels contain components ranging from JTextFields to JLists to JRadioButtons to Custom Components. Is there a way to wire up a Listener of some type on each "Junior" so that it will capture a change to any of its sub components? The listener would set a Dirty flag so that "George" knows he should enable the save button when control returns to him.

I know I could pop a listener on each of the Field level components on each of the panels, but I would like to set the listener up at the panel level if possible. That way I could reuse the same code on each panel and any new panels that are added without having to worry about what types of components that panel contains.

Thanks for any insight you can provide.

doesn't seem to be working for our Mac users (works beautifully in Windows). Does anyone know of a bug or work around? I have a process that may take several minutes and must show the user that processing is being performed. Thanks.

I'm beginning to get involved with JUnit Testing. It looks like a very powerful and useful tool. I was wondering, what would be a good JUnit reference book to add to my library? Website suggestions are also welcome. Thanks.

I hear you. Right now, being in day 3 of discovering Java, I am finding the breath and expanse of my ignorance truely appalling. Hmmm, not even sure I'm spelling anything right either. This beginning of my Java Journey has my head spinning a bit.

I'll be glad when the 2 Java books I've ordered are delivered and I can sit down and do some serious reading.



The good news is that you're in the right place. I think this is probably the most helpful community of Java Nuts in the world. If someone here doesn't have an answer to your question then you probably didn't have a question about anything programming related. ha ha Seriously, study your books; don't worry too much about version numbers; and above all ask the questions. Like Jeff said, no one is an expert, we're all still learning. Enjoy!

First off, congratulations Jonny! 73% is an awesome score.

I have a question along the same lines as the one you posed. For anyone who would like to chime in, does it really matter which version of the SCJP test we took? I know the most current cert is for 5.0; I'm certified on 1.4. Does this make me look somehow less desirable to a potential employer? At what point should I retest on a newer version? Sorry, just had a bunch of random neural firings.
Works for me. Thanks again. It's always good to get your advise from an author. ha ha
Sorry for the delay in my response. Thank you both.

Eric, I tried what you said and it seems to be working now. There are three images that are used to submit the form and one of them was named 'submit'. Upon changing the name of this image everything works fine again.

Now let me see if I am correct in my thinking. The javascript submit() method looked for a submit element in the form. It found the image named submit and tried to treat it like a submit button; however, since it was just an image with the exact same javascript behind it the call failed stating that the object didn't support that method. So the only element that should be named submit in a form is the submit button itself?
Go to Thomson Prometric. You want to look for an IT Certification with Sun Microsystems. When you get to the Client/Program selection screen choose the Sun Microsystems (310, 311) option in the list. After that you should see a list of all the possible certs you can receive with Sun. Just choose the Sun certified Programmer option. I know it's a little lengthy, but that's how I scheduled mine. Hope that helps.
I've got a web page with three images on it. All three images call the form.submit() javascript method in the onClick event. They all submit the same form. Here's the problem; none of them work. If I replace them all with input submit button objects everything works fine. Is there some sort of conflict that I'm missing here. Thanks for any help you can provide.
No problem. BTW I'd take Joannes advice from the Beginners forum as well. And you probably shouldn't double post. That way all of the responses are in one place.
