I can understand all of you. I just wanted to express my thoughts from my point of view. I like Java very much and i'm know making the project from Sun's "Java Workshop" Course(Includes Networking,Swing and JDBC).
I also agree that Java is better(in my opinion) than C++. But becuase Java is a new Language(5 years) and C++ is 21 years old. C++ is more popular. And i think that C# which is a combination of Java,C++ and VB will soon be popular(It's already popular in beta version).

About Cell-Phones, I really don't know a thing about Java technology in cell-phones(although i heard of it). I think that most java programmers(even Developers and Architects) barely know how to write programs and excecute them on cell-phones. I know i woudn't write programs for cell-phones.
What happend is "Sun" sued "Microsoft" for using Java so Microsoft rewritten java and added some features from C++ and VB. And now C#(In my opinion) is the closest thing to the perfect language.
For Cobol programmers: I have only 3 years experience so i have never used Cobol. So i can't argue with you about it. Cobol is second-level language like C, so it might be a good (or even great) language, but old-fashioned.
When i'll be a little more experienced in C# i will write to you about it.
Hope to see replies...

If you haven't noticed, i'm an SCJP.
So i know better than most of you.
I have already programmed in C# and i can tell you it's better.
I can understand that you're studying for the exam, but i'm sorry, somebody has to tell the truth.

I'm afraid that java will dissappear soon:
1)IE 6 won't include the JVM and more than 90% use IE.
2)Microsoft has created the .Net technology including c# which is kind of a better version of Java.
3)The only use for the portability of java is for programmers who work on unix. Regular users(more than 95%) use windows. And because c# is better now the c++ will immigrate to c# instead of Java.
So i guess the certification is useless...

Here's my advice for those who intend to take the test:
If you have some knowledge in java buy the "Complete Java 2 Certification" by Roberts and his buddies. This book is written by the people who wrote the real exam!
It was the only book i used to study for the test and its really great! Buy it from Amazon.com!
Then, go to Maha Anna's Site(www.javaranch.com/maha) and try to pass all the exams(about 2800 questions). Most of the exams are harder than the real thing!!!
After this you should be ready at least to pass.
If you are new to java, take some tutorials like on this site, on Marcus Green's site and the original Sun tutorial(java.sun.com/tutorial).
After you've learned the basics, take the steps which i mentioned in the begining of the message.
Good Luck Y'all!!!
P.S:
If you have any questions abou the test,don't be afraid to ask, i took only 3 days ago!

Most of the questions on Threads were how to implement Runnable or how to create Threads from Runnables in the right way.
There was also a question on determining the value of a member variable which is changed in the run method and also in the main method.
Two questions about synchronized, one is about deadlocks.
But don't worry, even if you don't answer any question on Threads you can still get 51/59!

Hello!
What great thing is to pass, what even greater is to pass with 91.
70% percent was on the basics.
A lot of questions on Threads(at least 8).
The IO wasn't difficult(RHE book has enough info about IO).
Don't worry about bit-shifting or GridBag. The exam had 1 questions on each, and they were so easy(easier than in most mock exams)!!!
If you have any questions, ask! I'm ready to help.
