Hi Mrutyunjay!
What kind of file are you downloading onto the mac? If the servlet is on a windows machine and you're trying to download a file onto the mac it may not work because windows and mac have different file formats. Or maybe the reason why you can't open the file on the mac is that you have to tell mac os which application to open the file with. If the file's icon on the mac looks like a plain white sheet of paper then that is the problem.

hiya everybody!
I want to get certified in xml but I don't know squat about xml. Is the IBM 141 cert the only cert out there for xml? It seems like that or that is the best cert to take for xml.
I'm thinking about buying either Professional or Beginning xml from wrox- any recommendations? I'm leaning toward Beginning xml and then learning soap, xslt, etc. using other resources because I don't believe a single book can cover all the topics well (i.e. Professional xml). On top of that- can a single chapter from Professional really be enough to truly learn a subject like soap or xslt and is it enough for the cert?

hiya everybody!
Thanks again to JavaRanch! Terence... I have done enough Java certs, and I'm interested in the IBM XML cert. Faiza... I used examples from books to help me out with the tags and dtds. Coding definetly helped- I didn't really understand tags until I made some of my own. I used Miftah and Ken's notes to study design patterns. Good luck!

Hi everybody!
Just passed the SCJWCD today with 83%. It took me a month to prepare- I read Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages to get back into servlets and jsp. I hardly worked with it at all at my last job and their training sucked big time. I read that book in about a week because most of it was review. Then I was at the book store and liked Inside Servlets, so i read that one- that took another week. Then I read the APIs and skimmed More Servlets and JavaServer Pages because the Inside Servlets book was a bit outdated. Finally I took all the mock exams on JavaRanch. I used Ken's notes as a last-minute review. During this whole time, I was skimming JavaRanch posts (really good stuff). The mock exams here are really good- I don't think I would have passed without those mock exams. I thought it was going to be really hard, but I finished it in a little over an hour. You have to know your DTDs, tags, jsp (there were more jsp than servlet questions), and design pattern questions (but the ones I got were fairly straightforward and easy). Thanks JavaRanch and good luck to all of you!!!

howdy mahendra,
i hope it looks good on a resume, cuz after i pass scwcd, i'm gonna start 2 look for a job.
it can't hurt having the scwcd on the resume, and it's a good way of learning j2ee. but from what i've seen, the multiple choice exams like scjp don't count for much, while the scjd is much more impressive because you actually are tested on your coding skills. i'm just taking this as a stepping stone to scja and something to put on the resume.

I want to install j2ee onto Mac OS X 10.1.2 but on Sun's website, the closest thing I can find is the Linux Redhat version of j2ee. I know that common Unix programs can be run on Mac OS X, so can anybody tell me... can the Linux j2ee be run on Mac OS X? If so, how do I do that?
