I hope that I post in the right forum.
I took SCJP 1.4 examination in 2006 and I lost the certificate a couple of months ago. I need this certificate to apply for a job.

I tried to contact oracle university in my country a couple of days ago and I haven't gotten any reply yet from them.

Do any of you have similar experience ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know if I post on the right forum. I've heard about server side java scripting called rhino ....
I try to assign a button in a html/jsp page that will execute rhino java script (because I want to access java code)
How can I do this ?? Is it the usual way of handling onClick button event to our js code embedded in the html/jsp page ?
Thanks in advance
Hi, I installed jdk 1.4 and 1.5 on windows. I set JAVA_HOME to refer to jdk 1.5 installation folder. When I type java -version, it refers to jdk 1.5 installation.
and then, I downloaded and installed jdk 1.6. When the installation was finished, I type java -version in command prompt, and it refers to jdk 1.6 version. But strangetly, I looked at path environment variables, and I couldn't find path that leads to jdk 1.6 installation folder. The path is to jdk 1.5 installation folder.
So, how can i set the java version to use in windows ??
Thanks in advance

I develop simple web application. I have a problem with the login/logout page.

Here's my logout.jsp page:

This logout page includes navigation file (navigation.jsp) that contains menus that a user can acess. Here's the navigation.jsp file:

The problem is, I wanted to show the login link once a user has logged out. I used this logic in my navigation.jsp file:

I invalidate session in my logout.jsp file, so the session should be null. This meets the condition required in the "if logic" above (session == null), so the login link should be displayed. But somehow, it is not displayed..

Any help would be appreciated..

Can you connect to the DB using the exact same code from a desktop application?

I haven't tried this...

have you enabled TCP/IP support on your server instance

I have read the manuals about How to manually enable TCP/IP on Windows XP sp 2 for SQL Server 2000
I added an open TCP port 1433 and name it SQL Server. I also added an open UDP port 1434 and name it SQL Server UDP.. However, the problem remains..
When I open command prompt and type netstat -an, both ports are not on the listening list. I also open the browser and go to the throws the same error..

Have you configured your server to allow SQL Server authentication?

How can i do this ??
I have a problem with using SQL Server 2000 with my application.
Here's the data access code:

and here's the error messages:

I have dropped jdbc driver (msbase.jar, mssqlserver.jar, msutil.jar) to the webapp lib folder
Are there any issues regarding connection to SQLServer 2000 through java application ??

Thanks Prasad for a quick response...
I did manage to pass the request to the controller, and this controller passes the job to another method to do some processing (querying the database to select all students).
I then tried to forward the request object which contains studentColl attribute. This attribute contains the collection of student objects queried from the database.

I found no error until I tried to access this attribute from jsp page, student-list.jsp.
It throws these error:

here's the student-list.jsp code:

It seems that, when I tried to access the studentColl, it throws NullPointerException

Is the way I pass object/bean from controller to the jsp correct ??
If it isn't , how can I pass the beans from controller to a jsp page ??

I develop a dummy mvc2 web application for school administration. I created a jsp welcome page (index.jsp)that contains a link to list all student.
From this link, we will be directed to the controller servlet, namely SisdikController.
How can i create this link so the controller servlet gets called ??

Here's my controller servlet:

and here's my web.xml:

In the controller, the request will be routed according to the request parameter given. In this case, i want the request param value to be 1 (VIEW_ALL_STUDENTS). How can I pass this value in my anchor tag ??

Is this form of anchor tag a correct one ??

Here's my file:

log4j.logger.solmit=ALL, A, A

log4j.appender.R.layout.ConversionPattern=%p %t %c - %m%n

The problem is already solved, Ben...
Actually, I followed the instruction on log4j docs..
I created initialization servlet, Log4jInit.class, that initializes log4j and loaded on startup...
This initialization class looks like this:

public class Log4jInit extends HttpServlet {

void init() {
String prefix = getServletContext().getRealPath("/");
String file = getInitParameter("log4j-init-file");
// if the log4j-init-file is not set, then no point in trying
if(file != null) {

void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res) {

and adding this entry to web.xml file:




In the class above, the static method configure(java.util.Properties properties) of PropertyConfigurator class is called to initialize log4j

When the tomcat starts, the logs are printed to stderr_20080522.log
I put it in <my-web-app>/WEB-INF/classes on my web application
Hi Ben,
Thanks for the reply. After I changed as what you said, I managed to display the output from the servlet. But, the error log4j configuration still remains..and no debug messages appear on my log file.
Error from stderr_20080522.log:

log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.catalina.startup.Embedded).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

How do we actually setup log4j in our web apps ??
Does anyone have the same experience ??
Hi all, I'm a beginner to web application
I tried to create a simple web application, namely WebTest. It only contains one servlet, like this:

package solmit;


import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

import org.apache.log4j.Logger;;

public class WebTest extends HttpServlet {
private static Logger log = Logger.getLogger(WebTest.class);

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException, ServletException
log.debug("anas: about to enter doGet");
PrintWriter writer = response.getWriter();

writer.println("<html><head><title>Simple Web Application</title></head>");
writer.println("<body><h1>A Simple Web Application</h1>");
writer.println("Here's some text...<br>...and a bit more text");
log.debug("anas: about to leave doGet");

My web.xml file looks like this:

I also created file in <web-app>/WEB-INF/classes directory. It contains the following code:

I packaged this application into WebTest.war.
When I dropped this package into my Tomcat (Tomcat 5.5), and tried to access web app using this url :http://localhost:8080/WebTest/start-web-test
I got error messages on my stderr_20080522 log:

Oh, I've also dropped log4j-1.2.13.jar and commons-logging-1.0.4.jar on Tomcat/common/lib
I've read tomcat documentation on logging.. but it seems that it doesn't give me some clue to use log4j logging in my application ("http://localhost:8080/tomcat-docs/logging.html")
I've also already read the documentation about log4j on ""
Could someone give an insight on this ??
Any help would be appreciated
