Hi Zach,

I remember, I could not get 80% in all. In fact, I failed my first enthuware test. But then I studied the concept I was weak at and as you said then keep on improving in next tests, noting down, studying, coding more on my weak points.

Then after a gap of 2 weeks, I took tests again. Then I got average 80%, I think. May be 75%. I don't remember. Its a long time now. As you already know, the key is the improvement you can have after each test. In real test I got 82%. And yes I also did K & B mock tests too. Those were great!

As K. Tsang said, practice is the answer.

But I can sense the stress and tension in your question. Its just a humble advice. Please don't mind. I feel, while studying/coding/practicing, if you can try to forget about passing/graduating and just concentrate calmly on the code, you will feel the change. The physical exhaustion is more due to the stress of passing/graduating. In the real exam, many feel the stress. The only way to not be overwhelmed is to be passionate about coding. Then you will enjoy. And what one enjoy becomes a play!!! I know it can be difficult in your situation. But there is no other way than to concentrate.

I hope you did not mind my advice. This one came from my personal experience.
Thanks Bert. Having the awareness of dynamic nature of exam is very important to the people taking exam. There should be no last minute surprises.
All I can remember is Enthuware was more or less equal in difficulty to exam(Real exam around 90% difficult to Enthuware). But I know Devaka's mock were really tougher than exams. I liked both. If you get 80% in enthware and 65% in Devaka, you are quite prepared. Thats my point of view only.
I just want to add my view here. What I felt after my certs( SCJP6 and SCWCD5), that I got interview calls. In any good interview no one cares for the degrees or cert. All that matters is how you perform.

My performance also improved because I studied diligently for the exam. This goes true about the performance in job. About clients and hence employers, I think you may be right. I am not sure if that matters. May matter to some.

But for me the real value a cert adds is the knowledge I get while preparing for it. True, that one may get knowledge without appearing for the cert, but for me having a goal to pass the exam with good score, made me study things, which otherwise I would have overlooked.
A very big thanks to you guys. I owe my success in passing SCJP6/SCWCD to you. More than passing the exams, its the beautiful way to explain things which motivated me to do better in coding. I am thinking about upgrading to Java7 cert. Even if I don't win, I will buy this book.


Thanks for the motivation.

Hi Krystian,

Yes, I can see in the chapter list given in amazon-link has "Chapter 14 - Securing applications using Spring Security" about Spring Security.

I started studying "Spring in Action for Spring 3.0" recently. Just building up a mvc spring application for learning and practice today. I need to know how different is Spring 4.0 is from Spring 3.0?


Thanks.

One friend of mine with 5 and half year experience in Java, gets 13 lpa. And I know people with 3 year experience in Java getting 9 lpa.
So, you can get around 10 lpa.
But, there is no appropriate answer for that.Depends on many things.

Hi all,
In my present company I was hired for a Java profile.Previous to that I had 9 months experience on contract basis in another company in Java (JSP/Servlets).I have SCJP and SCWCD certs which I got by hard labor as I had not much practical experience in those.
Its more than 3 months in my present job.At the time of interview I asked about the job nature and I was told that I would have to work in EJB,Struts and hibernate etc.And initially I was asked to study EJB.
But now I have been completely assigned work in Cold fusion and Flex etc.At first I thought that may be these are a few things which everybody here must work in to lesser or greater extent.But now I am just projected as coldfusion developer. And to my surprise in the excel sheet which maintains the skill set of Employee I am shown as having nil skill in JSP/Servlets and basic skill in Java.

I was very happy to get a regular job.But now I feel as if my hard labor is going to drain.I wanted to have some expertise level in JavaEE after 3 years experience.But Now I fear I would become Jack of all trades.
My colleagues here are telling me that forget Java and become expert in Coldfusion and Flex.Some are saying CODE and forget about technlogy.
I have no hopes of getting any Java Work here at this company.
Now its around 4 months I have been out of touch of Java.
If I want to search for a new job I need to practice Java at home and also learn the things which I thought I would be given a chance to work here.
At my job, both coldfusion and flex are new to me.So If I want to perform good at job, I would need to concentrate on those.But if I do that I would definitely forget Java.

I know one should not depend on technologies.But I am almost starting my career and i want to have some expertise in one technology at least and i chose Java almost 2 years back.

I also want to know future scope of coldfusion and/or coldfusion+Java.

Thanks for any guidance.
I am really confused.

Hi all,
I am new to portal development.I am using liferay portal 6.0.5 version using Eclipse helios IDE (with liferay plugin).
Can anyone suggest some tutorial for developing portlets using liferay 6.0.5 ( with liferay-ide-eclipse 1.0.1)

I saw the demo video at Developing portalets in liferay IDE. But when I tried to add portlet in step at 2:12 ,by clicking on "more" Only "Loading.." message keeps on displaying.
Any idea?
