Hi everybody,
I'm in the process of putting together an FAQ for this forum, collating the answers supplied by everybody to the more commonly asked questions.
The type of topics that I'm currently looking to cover are:
  • J2EE (high level, overview, products, etc)
  • Enterprise JavaBeans (session, entity, message-driven, etc)
  • JavaServer Pages
  • Java Servlets
  • Java Message Service
  • Architecture and Design (including patterns, etc)
  • Deployment


  • Since Servlets and JSP are part of the overall J2EE picture, it is (IMHO) worth including them in the FAQ, although I'm probably going to concentrate more on the J2EE, EJB and architecture/design topics.
    I'm going to scan over the threads in the forum for the last few months to pick out some of the questions, but if anybody has any specific questions/topics that they think should included in the FAQ, please just let me know by dropping a post into this thread.
    Thanks in advance.
    Simon

    Just bringing this thread back up to the top again ... anybody think that an FAQ is a worthwhile idea?
    Cheers

    FAQ is a nice idea.
    J2EE is a big area. Will FAQ have levels (novice, experienced and so on)?

    Good question - I was thinking of having several questions per topic - ranging from "what is" to "how do I"? Do you think this is sufficient, or would you rather see something else?
    Thanks for the feedback...

    from "what is" to "how do I"? ...
    How about Why questions? e.g. Why do we passivate session beans? Why questions raise design and architecture issues.
    I am hoping that it will be a seperate FAQ page and not one of the posts (posts become old very soon and then no one visits them).
    Can't wait to actively participate..

    An idea would be to compile a list of the different app servers for users. Mainly links to where they can be downloaded. Possibly little blurbs on how to set them up and run them?

    You may give the option to the user to get the FAQ ordered by topic, or by 'question type'.
    Also a level ordering(basics, advanced..) option would be nice.
    Anyway the FAQ is a worthwhile idea, for sure.
     
    It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
