Hi,

I have a FileOutputStream and I need to get the location (or just the name of the file) from it.

I see that there are functions:

FileChannel getChannel()
FileDescriptor getFD()

But they don't seem to have the filename either. I would have thought that this is an easy task, but it doesn't seem so.

I need something like myFileOutputStream.getFilename();

Thanks,
Mike

I will answer my own question now. You need to use the second URL, however, the registration ID you enter to make a user name is not your candidate ID, it's your unique registration number for the individual exam.
Hi,

I am able to login to:

https://www.certmanager.net/~sun_s/assignment.html

Will my grades eventually appear there? It's been about 4 weeks (I assume it will take them longer to mark due to Christmas and New Years).

Or will they appear hear:

https://i7lp.integral7.com/durango/do/login?ownername=sun&channel=sun&basechannel=prometric

Which I cannot seem to access.

Thanks,
Mike
I'm sure someone has a solution. Please share your knowledge.

Hi,

I understand how to programatically have mutiple log files using Java logging (by assigning handlers to the logger in the code), but how can you do this in the properties file.

For instance if I have two loggers:

com.wombat1
com.wombat2

I would like to do something like

com.wombat1.pattern=myFile1.log
com.wombat2.pattern=myFile2.log

But this doesn't seem to work, unliss you assign a handler in the code and change the pattern on the handler.

You can certainly change the level on the logger, like:

com.wombat1.level=SEVERE
com.wombat2.level=ALL

But how do I do this on the file name?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

I think most job offerings say CS because they aren't aware of CIS, or will accept CIS as equivalent (unless it's real hardcode low level programming or design required, and you can't list all acronyms). CIS does give you a broader understanding of technology and how it can be leveraged by an organization (but still requires study of OO and algorithms). If you want to move into management it may be your choice. I don't think anyone looks down on it, except for those with insecurities of their own degree (or lack of degree). I am currently finishing my MSc. in CIS. I plan on coupling it with an MBA, eventually. CIS is still definitely academic, otherwise it wouldn't require writing a thesis and would be more of a "learned" degree, like an MBA (which requires no thesis).

Billy,

At least in Canada, only about 10% of the IT workers have a post-graduate degree. http://www.shrc.ca/

It's a good thing to have to stand out in the job market.

A good number of people have only taken 6-8 month courses and are programmers, so I don't think it's fair to say that everyone has a Masters these days.

Thanks,

Thanks for your replies. Now I fully understand.

I was actually able to figure out how to add an inferface to a component diagram in Rational Rose. I created an interface on a "dummy" class diagram, opened my component digram, then dragged the interface from the left pane into my diagram.

Thanks again,
Mike
Hi,

I have a question about the component diagram on page 173 of Mark Cade's Book. Should the CustomerDAO depend on a subsystem like the two diagrams on the previous pages? Or are the subsystems only shown if they are part of other systems? For example if the Customer is in an Oracle DB the subsystem is not required, but if it was legacy system it would be shown.

Also, how do you draw the interface circles between the component and the subsystem in rational Rose?

any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike
Vlad,

I am currently finishing my Masters of Science in Computing and Information Systems. This degree is more practical than acedemic (compared to Computer Science), but still acedemic nonetheless. But anyways, I think it really matters what direction you want your career to go. If you are interested in research or pursuing a PHD the more acedemic degree is what you should choose (although you can pursue a PHD with either). I chose Computing and Information Systems because it was not purely algorithms, but how IT relates to the enterprise as a whole and how to leverage and manage it (plus all the cool algorithms as well). I felt it would be easier to move into management one day with this degree.

Mind you, I have never heard of just "Master in Computer Science". Are you sure this is correct?

Thanks for all your input guys! I will read the blueprints and follow what they recomments.

Thanks again,

Hi,

I have a question about the component diagrams and the Controllers. I believe that I fully understand how JSP's work with relation to the front Controller, but how should a Java Application connect to the system, through the same controller? Or should they have their own controller? I don't believe that a Java Application should connect directly to the EJB. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I were to follow the example 8-7 on page 171 of Cade's book, would I simply have a component called Application connected to the Controller?

Thanks,
Mike
Hi,
Does anyone know how to create a File object from a URL or to create a file object from a BufferedInputStream. Without writing the file to the machine and then reading it back again.
e.g.
URL url = new URL("http://www.mysite.com");
File f = new File(url); //but this doesn't work
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Hi,
Does anyone have a function that will replace stings within a string with new values.
e.g. public String(String theString, String replace, String replaceWith)
This function would replace all occurances of "replace" with "replaceWith" in the original "theString". it would then return this new string
Thanks
