I'm not sure if I got you right... do you think this is correct or not?



French joke, with irony and society critics
My opinion is that it's not because we are certified Master that we are Genius. The other idea is that some says there was the nice Sun and now the bad Oracle. Because we are now "guys from Oracle", it allows us to emphasis the fact that we are "Master" instead of people who just have taken some (precious) time to make a good job.

I have no problem to sell myself in an interview, and the Master title helped me. But sure, some don't like that and may prefer a more relative title.
And I'm pretty mixed about the bad Oracle.

I started the exam on October 2009, and 364 days, 23 hours and 57 minutes later, I sent the deliveries with :

- Bodgitt and Scarper 2.3.1
- Locking using ReEntrantLock
- RMI
- a clear MVC pattern for Swing

I didn't have time to write every single line of javadoc, and 3 hours before sending it, RMI was not working

But I the end, it was OK.

Since october, I made a few interviews for new jobs and missions, and the "Oracle Master" factor in a world where everybody is an Expert is a huge plus - as long as you.... you know, say some commercial stuff, sell your soul to Oracle or cheat chat like that.

Thank you all for your responses !!!

Despite what I've done, I really prefer some docs on getters/setters when I use an API

Oups, mine was not even 2ko. Let's see what will happen.
Unfortunately, not at all for about 20% of them. I made this exam the year of a new job, new house and first baby. Not the right moment !
I would keep String[] because there is enough stuff in String api. Using a SearchCriteria class is, in my opinion, overengeneering.
In a real case, if you need some complex upgrade, you would prefer to start your upgrade from String class rather than from SearchCriteria class.
Hi,
I submitted my work at 23h58 and didn't have time to put complete javadoc on getters/setters in about 30% of the project.
Do you think it will have an impact ? I think it's the main problem of the project and it makes a kind of stupid stress.
Vectors are "Synchronized" and can be used for this reason instead of ArrayList in some special case that nobody remember nor use. I think SCJD will help you to use correctly conccurent problem without falling in bad use of "synchronized" classes.

Try a child, and I can assure you you will NOT become a certified architect.
What I don't understand is that this test is 238€ to take. This test with 4 questions is really the Step 2 ?

It seems at least to be the correct way. I just hope that the delay is still good
