don't get me wrong, i've gotten more outta these forums than any book or class i've taken as far as advancing my understanding of java. but i don't find the google search to be useful. i entered my member number as the search parameter, with and without the quotes and with and without the + prefix, and the engine only returned 6 hits. i'm not a monster poster, but i have more than 6 posts. i'm tryin to do my part testing the jive forum software, but i'm not having much luck with that search engine either. again, even without a search option these forums would remain an invaluable tool for the java neophyte, and for the guru as well i imagine. so please take this critisism in the constructive context that it is intended.

hmm, i liked the old search better. you could search individual forums for what you were looking for. imho this new way is not as efficient.

i'm using java 1.4.0. i downloaded servlet-2_3-fcs-classfiles.zip from the sun site. what do i do with it? unzipped it contains a javax folder, which in turn contains a servlet folder. i'm figuring this is what i need to put somewhere in my j2sdk1.4.0 folder. i put it in javax in the src.zip folder in j2sdk1.4.0, but no joy. i get import errors trying to compile servlets. i was using java 1.3 some time ago, and it was a breeze configuring servlets, at least that's the way i remember it. but i had to put java down for awhile. no i am learning and relearning. seems that it was easy to add new apis before, but i'll be durned if i can figure this out. can't find any install instructions on the sun site, i guess they assume you know what you're doing. sadly, it seems that i don't. please help!

gotta vent. it would make life so much easier if i could use a string to determine which case to call. i'm sure there is a good reason why ya can't (which is probably beyond me), but what is that reason?

if i use
public static void main(int[] args)
the program will compile but give an error message
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: main
if an array of int arguments is not alowed, why does the compiler not get all uppity about it?
gotta use
public static void main(String[] args)
and make a new Integer object from the and call it's intValue() method to pass integer values from the command line? is this because the int is a primitive type, and only objects can be passed as arguments to main? why does the compiler allow int[] then?
just tried Integer[] as the argument to main and it gave the same error message. is String all that is allowed as an argument? seems that, as particular as the compiler is, is would flag anything else.

if you're going to give JSP a go, I suggest considering Marty Hall's "Core Servlets and Java Server Pages".


sound advice. i am a relative java newbie, but have been able to do alot based on what i learned in the book. i am actually just now starting the jsp section, but if it is as helpful as the servlet section then i will be happy. if you only get one book, get this one.
