relax, you do have the printout of the exam, haven't you? So its all good. Did you check your record in Prometric's site?
You should try 6.0.0-Final. In case this is a bug in 5.1, 6.* has bigger chances of being supported.
Needless to say, jboss "open source-like" community, i hate to say. I have been living with Postgresql and jboss for over 10 years, and the gap between the one "open source" and the other is just huge.

I had several thoughts/issues/etc with jboss, my posts over the forums got 1000s views but zero answers. On the postgresql camp, things are totally different, luckily!

i think they told me to wait till end of June. But they were very helpful and replied very fast.

Ok so, for each of the 3 Dog objects you save manually each one's value for the static var, right? But when deserialized at the same time only one Class dog is loaded whose static var needs a value. which of the 3 (one per object)?

Milto, γιά σου και καλή τύχη με τις εξετάσεις

To your question, the static var apparently will take the value of the last object deserialized.

Guys, in addition to what my friend Ikpefua wrote, something that the book does not explicitly say:


Varargs works as a last "catchall" resort.

Compiler CANNOT widen then box

Compiler CAN box/unbox then widen


I have written notes on each one of the 9 chapters + one additional of mine + over 140 programs. If you are interested i can send it all over.

Ikpefua Jacob-Obinyan wrote:@Achilleas...Thanks man that was the idea I had all along and thats what I did:

Now I got confused when @Hama said;

but it should be either rectOne or rectTwo

So I was wondering if there was a way 'rectOne' or 'rectTwo' could display as output.

rectone is the name of the variable. There is no way in java for an Object to know the name of the variable which points to (refers to) it!!!

MAN!!! You just gave a GREAT idea!!! An Object to know the name and type of the variable it is pointed to. Or to be more specific a list of all variables which point to it!!
Ikpefua, Rectangle has only height, width and point. You have to use ONLY those in your toString() method.
Why would you want to employ more than 1 Rectangle instances?
IMOH here:

- the cast Rectangle otherRect = (Rectangle)other; is not needed.
- public Object findLargest(Object object1, Object object2) could very well be static
- public Object findLargest(Object object1, Object object2) could very well have a signature of findLargest(Rectangle object1, Rectangle object2) , no point in having arguments of type Object.

By the way, are the practice questions/exams from K&B book more difficult, equally or less difficult than the real exam?
Thanks man!

No need to worry!
The key point is to write many programs, (i wrote 145 of them), but not just write them and run them. NO!, you must document every conclusion that your programs lead you to do, on paper! (or file!) You must do it in a systematic way. Don't get fooled that the book has it all. No. The book is brilliant, its style is awesome, i like it very much, but yet you need to keep your own notes.

Are you from Russia/Bulgaria?
