Hi there,
I've recently qualified as a SCWCD in which I got a 93%. I've been programming in various languages for applications and the internet in Java(2 months) VB and ASP(1 year), Coldfusion and XSL. These have all been resonably small projects. I've just moved to Barcelona in Spain and there is actaully quite a lot of movement in the market, especially for J2ee, Jsps, servlets etc. Of cource the problem is that there are a lot of cadidates with a hell of a lot more experience than my good self, so after about 6 interviews where they told me if I had some more experience in J2ee I would be in, I thought that I might get a part time job and develop something myself at home, is this wise.
If so can anyone advise me on the following.
1)An application server that is free for developing purpose apart from tomcat,
2)which is the best or preferred, ie weblogic vs websphere
3)A lot of companies are asking for Visual Age, should I use this
4)Whats the best UML editor that is free.
5)Is there any other technology that I should use the would help me sell myself.
6)Any other advise is welcome

Cheers in advance
Williery

1)An application server that is free for developing purpose apart from tomcat,
JBoss, also BEA now will let you use the Weblogic suite for
development free.
2)which is the best or preferred, ie weblogic vs websphere
It's getting closer but I still think weblogic is better.
3)A lot of companies are asking for Visual Age, should I use this
No, WSAD (Websphere studio for app. dev.) is replacing Visual Age.
4)Whats the best UML editor that is free.
I don't know if there is anything free that is good. You can get
by with Visio if you can get ahold of that one.
5)Is there any other technology that I should use the would help me sell myself.
I'm not sure about Spain but web services are growing here in the U.S.
6)Any other advise is welcome
Joining open source projects yourself can be a good idea if you have the
time. sourceforge.net has a ton of them.

ArgoUML (tigris.org) is free. There's a commercial adaptation called Poseidon (gentleware.de) which has a Community Edition. For full round-trip development, it's somewhere around $600, depending on special offers and which flavor you pick, which is still a LOT cheaper than something like Rational.
However everyplace I know of that's made UML a cornerstone of the development effort has also been severly afflicted by PHB syndrome. To me, UML is just another tool. To them, it's a complete showstopper if you have 7 years of Java without 3 years of Rational.
However, they're a LOT further behind on their project schedules than I am :roll:

What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
