Which of the voodoo exams are for Java 1.5?
I agree with Buhi, the statements appear to be contradictory. I am confused as well.

Hi Marc,

I am curious why you advised against installing the JDK with the NetBeans bundle.

The reason that I am asking is that yesterday installed SKD 1.5 update 6 with the NetBeans bundle. At the end of the day I did a virus scan and now I am finding a virus that I can not figure out how to clean. It's called Java.Shinwow.BA.

Thanks,
Tony

Hi Jessica,

I am reading the Java 5 K&B and I am learning that there a lot of differences between the two exams...for instance, bit shifting is no longer on the exam. Plus there a lot of the new features of Java 5 are featured on the exam. In the 1.4 book you will not find the coverage for enums, enhanced for loops, etc. I recommend you get the study guide which corresponds to the exam you want to write. I had bought the 1.4 book, but I promptly sold it when I saw that the Java 5 book would be released, I ended up waiting two months for the Java 5 study guide but it should be easy to get now.

Are you in India ??? Is the Kathy's Java5 Cert Indian Edition available in Computer Book Shops ???




Hi Jibin,

I am not India, I am in Canada. I ordered the book through the Canadian version of Amazon, www.amazon.ca. I ordered it since November, and it only became availabe one week ago.
Hi Andrew,

Thank you for the thoughtful reply. I felt like maybe I was reading into it way too literally, but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks for letting me know.

Hi,

After months of waiting for this book, I finally received last week, and have been digging into it. It really does live up to all it's praises that I've seen, but I have run into a part that seems to contradict itself.

Page 41 talks about Final Arguments. The example is:


Then on page 46 in the section titled Methods with Variable Arguement Lists (var-args), it defines how the terms "argument" and "parameter" will be used throughout the book.

  • argumentsThe things you specify between the parentheses when you're invokinga method
  • parameters The things in the method's signature that indicate what the method must receive when it's invoked



  • If that is the case, shouldn't the secion on page 41 be called "Final parameters"? Based on the examples in the book this is what it appears like to me. Can someone please clarify?

    Thanks,
    Tony
    Hi,

    Have you tried just going to http://java.sun.com/ (with out the www)? When I click your link that is what I am redirected to.

    Good luck,

    Hi,

    I found a book that explains it to me. Please ignore this thread.

    Thanks,

    Hi Sorry for such a basic question, not sure if I should have asked in the beginner forum, but I'll try my luck here. I've been researching this all afternoon, and stil can't figure out. I need to use fileinputstream to read a file into an array, actually I just need a substring of each line. Once in the array I will sort it, and then use fileoutputstream to write it back to another file. I'm not sure how to this. How would I know how big to make the array?

    Thank you,

    So - perhaps you just need to change what Opera is identifying itself as.

    The original game works no matter what Opera is identifying itself as.

    Regards, Andrew



    Sorry I don't see where to change what Opera is identifying itself as, but your right the original game works fine for me.

    I tried a couple of pages to see if other applets worked and they did.
    These are pages I tried:
    http://www.bodo.com/javame.htm
    http://www.student.oulu.fi/~sairwas/object-test/java/

    Sorry, I don't know how to check the console.

    Ryan and Ulf,

    Thank you both for your replies. I have implemented both suggestions and the program now compiles and runs.

    I apologise for not mentioning earlier that I am using jdk 1.3.

    Thanks,
