Hello,

I have been on several interviews already and what I noticed is that each one is very different from the next one, although the positions I'm interviewing for are similar.
Sometimes it's really technical on language basics which I totally understand when dealing with juniors and mediors even.
And sometimes they just ask some relevent info on previous jobs and what you think about some specific problem you mention.
And then there are the google-level interviews..

But how can you properly prepare for any of these.
The technical stuff should be there but some things are not as easy to prepare for.

Thanks for any input on this.

Eric,

from what I can deduct from the logs you do not have an actual memory leak.
The problem is that a webapplication (kPuser2) created a thread which looks to serve for async communicating with the flex application.
When the web application is stopped, the created thread is not destroyed properly.
The tomcat server hence does it for you to prevent memory leaks.

And the messsages you see are warnings.
The proper action is to check which thread(s) are created and implement a clean up action on destroying the web application.

Then the message should no longer appear.

I hope this helps.

Why your application stops is a different issue I think.

John,

this has been my experience as well.
But I noticed people posting about typing faster as a soft skill, so that got me wondering.

Thank you for the response.
And of course also everyone else who answered.

Hello,

I've been a developer for 10 years now and I'm only starting to realise the importance of soft skills.

But I'm still not clear on what soft skills cover.

Is it a number of techniques you can learn to work faster, or does this also mean the ability to read people in negociations for example?
Or how to properly handle difficult customers and so on?

Kind regards,

Hello Paul and Joseph,

welcome here.

And thank you for sharing your time en thoughts.

My question is a simple one: What is hte best way to 'attack' the certification (guide )?
What is the best way to prepare?

Kind regards,

Tim

Matthew,

thank you for the link.

I started suspecting as much about 3 years ago but couldn't identify what was going wrong in my career, starting to lag on others of my age.
Now after searching en reading a lot I stumbled on the concepts of soft skills and could relate to their importance because they are a large part of what I'm missing.

To all reading this, do not underestimate the importance of these skills. ;)

Kind regards,

Tim

Matthew,

I've been working for 9 years in IT now and would like to say I am an experienced IT professional.
But to be honest, I don't think/feel I am and I notice people also expecting more from me on the workfloor.
I have done a number of jobs but no one job was what I thought it was, resulting in a superficial experience level unlike the one you would expect.

I think this is because I was to afraid to speak up to get what I want, both for me as for the content of my job.

So how important is it to devellop this and other soft skills that help you grow?
And how can you develop them?

Any suggestions to raise my level are also welcome because I'm a bit overwhelmed at the moment on where to go from here.

Kind regards,

Tim

Any time, I'm preparing for the SpringSource certification myself at the moment so I should know these things ;)

Kind regards,

What you can do is the following:

load the properties file in a PropertyPlaceHolderConfigurer in your XML:

<bean id="yourProperties" class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer">
<property name="location">
<value>database.properties</value>
</property>
</bean>


You can also use the context-namespace for a more simple configuration.

When this is done, just use the @Value annotation.

e.g.: @Value("#{yourProperties.propertyKeyValue}")

I hope this helps, otherwise, the SpringSource reference guide offers more examples.

Regards,

Tim
