jsp, oracle, xml and things like that. It seems like every job ad I see posted has a requirement of either several years of exp. or at bunch of other things besides java. Do you have any idea what the most common(if there is such a thing)jobs juniors like me usually have the most chances of getting?

Just got the certification, but these posts are bursting my bubble. I am new to this field, and do not have 12-15 skills to add to JAVA on my resume. Is anyone outhere willing to share some wisdom on what's the best way to get a entry level job and what kind of job to look for.

My understanding is that >>> is division by two whith changing sign to positive. When I type System.pritnln(-30>>>1);
I get 2147483633. How in the world is that possible. Please help!!!

thanks...I have been studying form Sybex and I am not very happy with it.

The JQ+ exams are $20 and, in my opinion, worth 10x that. I never saw the Sun mock exam (other than the free one), but I can't see how it could be any better than JQ+.
Just my opinion.



Pardon my ignorance, but what is JQ+ exams?

Question: I have been studying now for abt 6mos from Java Programming Joyce Farrell and Complete Java 2 Certf. Roberts, Heller, Ernest. I also practiced with their testing software. I also bougth and did Sun exam questions and I did good so I registered for the test. However, the more I am browsing through these forums, the more I am seeing things I have never seen before (I do not have any programing expc.) I am begining to wonder if I am ready for this test.


I guess you are right. Thank you - little self-confidence and few programs can't never hurt.

Hi guys...I'm getting ready to take the SCJP exam and I am freaking out. I bought the Sybex training and virtual test center and keep getting a lot of conflicting answers. For instance:
public class Calc{
int a = 3;
int b = 4;
int c = 6;
int d = 8;
public String calc() {
return a + b
+ c + d;
}
public static void main(String[] args)
{
Calc c = new Calc();
System.out.println(c.calc());
}
}
correct answer by Sybex is it will compile and print 21. When I try to compile this code on my Java Compiler I get: incompatible types found int; required java.lang.String at line "return" Who's right? PLEASE HELP!!! aharper@houston.rr.com


Hi guys...thanks for all the responses.(by the way, it's a she)...and I do see that it does not make any sense, but I do not get how can somebody like Sybex have a bunch of wrong answers out there in their material? And if that's wrong, how do I know what else is wrong (unless I can compile it). Anybody out there worked with their stuff and any feedback?
