Thanks a lot for interesting information
The only issue I have is that Jbuilder is not free . All other features are simply too cool.
Please help me with a detailed description of a FACTORY CLASS? I have been looking around but could not come up with details. Any links are much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks a lot Bob. java.util.regex it is , got it from the page you referred. And it was silly on my part to use the term function instead of method on my previous post.
Thanks,

Hello all,
Where do I look for, for pattern handling functions which have been introduced in 1.4? Is it part of core APIs? Please explain as to how it is handled.
Thanks in advance,

I dont know about US but in India the discount is on till March 31st. I mean one should buy the voucher and register with Prometric center before 31st. Exam date can be at a later date depending on the availability at Prometric center. But as far as I know one has to take it within a year of registering with Prometric. Please clarify.
Thanks,
Keerthi.
Yes the information is correct. Check out any Sun Authorized Education Center. The offer expires on March 31st.
Good luck,
Keerthi
Thank you Valentin, Ajith, Rob, Sarkar, Ashik, Aymen, Andez.

Mark,
Thanks for sharing your score. That really is an inspiring performance by you. I was in a dilemma as to which one to take first WCD or Developer. Your message helped me decide.
WCD here I come .

Product certifications? hmm. They dont seem to be as hot as certifications related to a Language or Operating System or a Database. A recent survey on certcities.com does not list any product certification in Top 10.
But I am curious to know the benefits of getting certified in Websphere.
Thanks,
Keerthi
Well atleast I no longer feel intimidated by Java guys . Now that Java has begun to fascinate me I guess I gotta polish my skills further by working on medium sized projects.
Preparation Tools: RHE, Exam Cram, Java 2 Complete reference. If I had made serious use of these my % would have soared. When properly used
I reckon one can ace the exam with these.
Study guides: The list of Traps by Maha Anna, Ajith, and so many others really helped.
About Mocks I took: Now folks dont laugh.
First time I tried them got a teeny weeny 30% . One day before the exam got 56% . The day I took the exam scored 83%. All on JQplus. I practiced on Jtest and Jexam too. Though not much.
I found this simple solution to score well in mocks. Take the same exam again and again till you score high. That is a sure confidence booster.
Important Exam tips:
1) Dont lose your sleep previous night. I was watching Robinhood movie and Christina Aguilera's songs and afterwards could not sleep. Some exam questions have lengthy sentences which require quick comprehension.
2) Though IO, Threads, AWT are a must, there were a lot of code snippets. Its imperative that one needs to practice a lot with them.
3) In spite of covering all the study materials, if you still think you are not ready. Read "The power of positive thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale. It surely helps.
Thank you notes:
1) A big thank you for all who share their experience and knowledge here to help beginners.
Valentin Crettaz, Marcus Green thank you guys for some great mocks.
2) My parents, brothers for tolerating my tantrums and to my friend who lent me a copy of Java 2 complete reference.

Shane,
Today I tried installing 1.4 on Solaris 8.
The version used was Solaris SPARC 32 bit.
Earlier version was 1.2.2 and I did not want that to be erased.
Before installation:
java -version gave
Solaris VM (build Solaris_JDK_1.2.2_07, native threads, sunwjit)
java was installed in a directory /usr/java1.2
Here is the procedure which worked for me.
1)unzip, untar into a directory.
gunzip j2sdk----.gz
tar -xvf j2sdk----.tar1
2)It creates some subdirectories like SUNWjrt, SUNWdmo, SUNWdev, SUNWman etc.
3)pkgadd -d . SUNWj3rt SUNWj3dev SUNWj3man SUNWj3dmo
4) This shall install sdk in /usr/j2se (It takes /usr as the Base directory) since no base directory is specified.
5) Earlier versions too was installed in the same directory but they had names like java1.1, java 1.2 etc. They were intact after the installation of 1.4.
After installation
/usr/j2se/bin/java -version displayed
------------------
java version "1.4.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-b92)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-b92, mixed mode)
and
java -version displayed
java version "1.2.2"
Solaris VM (build Solaris_JDK_1.2.2_07, native threads, sunwjit)

So the directory in which previous version is installed should be different from "/usr/j2se" (And relevant changes should be made to Classpath etc. if required)
Copying all relevant packages in a subdirectory usr of a base directory like for example (/foo/bar/usr) did not work. As it still came up with warning messages.


Micael,
Whoa
:roll: :roll: I cant believe the author of the book I am reading is correcting me . Thanks for correcting me, and letting me know that some other flavours of unix too use pkgxxx utility.
Though file name extensions are not important they are used as an indication to the source. For example ucd,mit,cit,narc etc. Some of GNU packages have .pkg.
Thanks,

Joseph,
There are some Unix/Linux message groups out there. Try certcities.com, I vaguely remember coming across some links there. For Solaris there is one yahoo group. Also try Sasasite.com.
