Really, you should have given up several posts ago and redesigned your system to conform to reality. It's clear what you want; it's just too bad that the tools you chose to implement it don't support your requirements. So this is the time to declare defeat and redesign.

Paul Clapham wrote:How would you tell if it's a folder? And what would you do if you could find out? The URL specification doesn't include "folder" or "directory" as one of its technical terms, and the Java URL class doesn't provide any way to get a list of URLs based on the theory that a URL represents a folder.
Paul Clapham wrote:You can't. It doesn't make sense for a directory to be a resource, and it doesn't make sense to open an InputStream to read a directory either.
If you have a design where you don't know the names of all your resources, then the usual way to deal with that is to include a "table of contents" resource which contains a list of the names.

Maybe you should read a bit more carefully. Beneath the overview of the certification paths with the approved trainings, you can read the following:
Only instructor-led in-Class or instructor-led online courses (includes Live Web Classes – LWC and Live Virtual classes – LVC) from the above approved list of Oracle University courses count toward the training requirement. Self Study CD-Rom and Knowledge Center (including Recorded Web Courses – RWC) courses are excellent study and reference tools but DO NOT meet the Hands-on Course Requirement for certification.

The new OCP Java SE 6 Programmer Practice Exams book is hardcore. I am not a fan of retaking exams, but I guess that is what you have to do with this book. The trick questions are brutal unless you have a laser like eye.
Has anyone else used this book? What has been your experience?
