Passed the SCWCD with 85% today, 6 years after SCJP! Never got a job in 2001 quit Java and programming all together and came back a couple of months ago. Created this fantasy basketball site (28 people playing - the site that this system/logic is based on shut down) while going through the HEadFirstJSP book.

Fantasy Basketball Site Login: guest, Password: guest

Anyway, everything is pretty much dynamically generated albeit messy and hacked up a little, the most complex calculations is in calcuating players boxscores based on daily NBA stats and the complex scoring system: click schedule, then click a boxscore.

I hope to clean it up now with custom tags, tagfiles, out bad html in css, and struts the whole puppy. The only transction you can do now is set your team lineup. So CBS Sportsline does the transactions, the trades, waivers, etc. I am planning on going through learning EJB/SCBCD and implementing that while I learn

I want to get into Java Development now since the market seems so mature with a lot of jobs but I have ZERO experience. Do you think this site helps a little to show I do know something? I mean everything is pretty dynamically generated and the boxscore logic was a pain to generate. Also, I have a CS degree, SCJP, SCWCD hopefully a SCBCD in a few months.

BTW, thanks to Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates, Frederic Esnault, and the people responsible for this site. Geez, I feel like I won an oscar!

BTW, Kathy Sierra is hot. I wouldn't mind her filling in for some of those models in the next Head First book
