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.
