Hi Guys
i wonder if one you senior guys could help me out. initially when i was trying to run a web application it was showing me an HTTP 404 error, after i google the solution i changed the server from "use workspace metadata" to "use tomcat installation" now it is showing me a new error " publishing to tomcat v7.0 server at localhost has encounter a problem" i had tried to google this new error and i am not getting any clear answers. can someone kindly give me step by step the solutions for this error.
Thanks in advance

well jasper i was clueless on these 3 questions and i had to guess but this was my rezoning, again as a Jr developer i understand that i still have room to go and learn

question # 1 answer 9 because i was just following the math
question # 2 answer b (performance) because the sentence "When you test a program and ensure that every line of code has been accessed, this basic testing is?:" what i am understanding from this question is "when you test a program is every line of code is working" and if that is the question then the code is performing
question # 3 answer b it just made sence

i am applying for entry level java positions and some of these companies make you do assessment exams once the test is done you only get the the result of the test and not a breakdown of the questions telling you what was right or what was wrong. 3 questions that got my attention (maybe because i felt that i have to guess) are below can someone kindly confirm if i am right and if not what would it be.

Int a=3; int b=0;
Switch (a) {
Case 1:
B = a + 2;
Case 2:
B = a + 3;
Case 3:
B = a + 4;
Case 4:
B = a + 5;
Case 5:
B = a + 6;
B = a * 2;
// line A

When you execute the sample code above, what is the value of b when line A is reached?
o 0
o 5
o 6
o 8
o 9

my answer is 9

At a minimum basic Java testing includes:

Functional – have all methods been called?
Procedural have all lines of code been called?
Decisional has every control point been evaluated?
Conditional has every Boolean expression been evaluated?
Performance does the code perform efficiently?

When you test a program and ensure that every line of code has been accessed, this basic testing is:

my answer is performance

a friend passes along an applet from that has been signed using a private key, explaining that since the applet is from and has been signed, it would acceptable to allow the applet full access to your hard drive. The email with the applet also contain a public key for you to verify. You verify the signature using the provided public key, and the verification passes.
o Is as trustworthy as
o Was signed using the private key that matched the provide public key
o Is corrupt and cannot be trusted
o Was not released by
o Cannot access your hard drive, since you have not registered your public key with

my answer is b

any help will be appreciated

I was wondering if someone could give me a hand and show me how can I use the util.scanner and hashmaps to assign values to keys get the user type 2 keys and get the return sum of the value of these two keys. for example
A = 1
B = 2
C = 3
D = 4
the user will use util.scanner to type any letter from A to D and the compiled will give him the sum of these letters
your help will be gladlyyyy appreciated.

good morning
how would I enter quotetations in the system.out.print for example I am trying to type - please enter "A" - if I type the regular System.out.println("please enter "A"") I will get an error and ideas

I was thinking about creating a hashmap or a hashtable where the the price of the items will be link to the a,b,c,d etc... and import util.scanner so people could enter the items and have the system add them up. what do you think?

i am not sure how to answer the question I have until Monday to reply

I was given the below code as an interview question can you kindly give me an idea on what would be the best approach to tackle this question.

Consider a store where items have prices per unit but also volume
prices. For example, apples may be $1.00 each or 4 for $3.00.

Implement a point-of-sale scanning API that accepts an arbitrary
ordering of products (similar to what would happen at a checkout line)
and then returns the correct total price for an entire shopping cart
based on the per unit prices or the volume prices as applicable.

Here are the products listed by code and the prices to use (there is
no sales tax):
Product Code | Price
A | $2.00 each or 4 for $7.00
B | $12.00
C | $1.25 or $6 for a six pack
D | $0.15

There should be a top level point of sale terminal service object that
looks something like the pseudo-code below. You are free to design and
implement the rest of the code however you wish, including how you
specify the prices in the system:

... etc.
result =

Here are the minimal inputs you should use for your test cases. These
test cases must be shown to work in your program:

Scan these items in this order: ABCDABAA; Verify the total price is $32.40.
Scan these items in this order: CCCCCCC; Verify the total price is $7.25.
Scan these items in this order: ABCD; Verify t
