Hello,
I am currently starting on this project. I am wondering if there is any good literature with worked examples of different scenarios which are encountered in the project. Can anybody suggest one? I used the Sierra book for the Programmer Exam but I still feel I need some more fuller examples to get me thinking in the right direction.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Fintan.

You won't find a book providing a step by step walkthrough for any specific assignment. Such a book would be a blatant violation of the SCJD assignment contract as well as being well below the level of the person the assignment is meant for.

Andrew's book (published by APress) is the most used reference.

It all depends on what you define as "different scenarios which are encountered in the project".

As Jeroen rightly notes, there is a limit on how close any author can get to the real assignment.

However if you are after books that will work through example projects, giving you information and examples that you can then apply to your own project, then that is certainly possible.

You can download a copy of our table of contents and a sample chapter from the Apress page for SCJD Exam with J2SE 5

Regards, Andrew

But then...

Is there any book which we can find step-by-step example projects, so we can use as reference when we are stuck in our own projects?

Any suggestion?

Hi Diego,

Welcome to JavaRanch and this forum.

There is my book of course . See the links above (or below) to see the table of contents and descriptions.

Or you can take a look in the reading materials faq (listed at the top of the SCJD forum) to see some other books. As far as I know the other books dont cover JDK 5 which is mandatory for current assignments though.

Regards, Andrew
