Hi All,
I have recently cleared SJCP and intend to take up developer certification. I was searching this discussion forum for tips to begin. After reading some of the posts I am now confused. I request the developers to clarify some of my doubts.
1. I have a standalone PC (P3) with windows 98 and JDK1.3.What other software/hardware is reqd to begin the project ?
2. Should the project be tested in a network?
3. What is the level of knowledge required in EJB and servlets ?
Thanks in advance
Ganesh Raj

Hi Ganesh,
Some quick answers to your questions
1: No other sw/hw are required, although i would recommend using a good text editor with syntax highlighting.
2: A test in a real network would be nice, but you can probably simulate the conditions by running one jvm for the client and one for the server on the same computer.
3: No knowledge of this are required, save it for the SCJA .)

Regards,
Aron

You will want to write a couple of good test drivers that can pound on your server in an attempt to validate that it is thread safe. I'm using Win95 and just opened several MS-DOS prompt windows to run my server application, GUI client, and several test drivers.
If you have access to a networked environment then it would be worthwhile to test it there, but you can get by with just one machine if necessary.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
