Hi Tom,
I'm not creating a package here, I'm using a FileSet as input to an xdoclet template. The ordering of the FileSet seems random and nothing in the docs (I have rtfm already ) seems to talk about ordering of FileSets.
Any other ideas?

I'm using any along with xdoclet to generate an XML file I need from my classes. I would like the fileset to iterated over the files in the same hierarchy as they are on the disk for example:
com
-package1
*file1
*file2
-package2
*file1
*file2
So for this I would like them to be iterated over like:
com/package1/file1
com/package1/file2
com/package2/file1
com/package2/file1
The fileset is currently iterating in what looks like a Random way, I don't see any order about it at all. Is there anyway to have a file set order based on the directory/filename?
thanks!

Well I got priorities to work by using the:
send(Message message, int deliveryMode, int priority, long timeToLive)
rather then just the:
send(Message message) method... strange that it isn't taking the values from the message header.

I'm trying to send messages with different priorities, however its not working.
I set the priority of the message on the producers side using setJMSPriority(int), and I then print it out before sending. The priority is set correctly it seems. However once the consumer (a message driven bean) receives it the priority is set to the DEFAULT value of 4 (this value is set int the weblogic console for the JMS session, and if I change it to something like 5 all messages coming in get set to that priority).
The server is weblogic81, any ideas about what is going on??

Congrats to all!
Well now it looks like I will have two copies of Kathy and Bert's book. Anyone looking for a copy email me, I have one for sale (I've only had it 1 week).
thanks,

Hi Kathy and Bert,
I got your book yesterday and while I've only gone through the first chapter so far I've noticed a couple typo's in some of your examples.
They are pretty minor, but so far in chapter 1 this is what I found:
Page 13, example on octal line reads:
int five = 06; // Equal to decimal 6
This should probably be:
int six = 06; // Equal to decimal 6
The other one I found was page 29. Under "Arrays of Object References". The paragraph talks about Dog is a subclass as animal as follows, but then the stuff that follows is about Cars (Subaru, Honda, Ferrari extend Car).
I was just wondering if you'd like me to keep track of these as I find them while reading your book?

Here is one for helping you remember the differences between the different collection classes in java.util
"Look inside magic, know something new"
Using the first letter again from each word
L-I
Lists use Indexes
M-K
Maps use Keys
S-N
Sets have No dulplicate elements

Well this one is for remembering how the compiler converts primatives when doing arithmetic operations:
"Don't Forget Little Issac"
Basically it is just the first letter of each word for to help remember these rules:
D (double) - If either type is double, then the other is converted to double
F (float) - Else, if either type is float, then the other is converted to float
L (long) - Else, if either type is long, then the other is converted to long
I (int) - Else, both types are converted to int

One more question, do you know when this book will be available for purchase for those of us who do not get a free copy? Amazon still shows it as not yet published.
thanks,
lance
Hi Kathy,
You say that:


We assume that your goal in getting this book is to pass the exam. Period. We take no prisoners when it comes to being an exam prep book. There *are* some exam prep books with the main goal of making you an overall better Java developer, with certification prep as a kind of natural side-effect. Ours is the opposite. It's an exam prep book, with being a better Java developer a natural side-effect.


How would you compare this book to say Bill Brogden's Exam Cram for Java 2?

Thanks for all the comments people. I've trimmed down my resume and added a project work section. I know it still needs some work but here it is

Thanks for the comments Mark. One problem I have is that many of the things under skills are things I've done/used in academic projects and haven't used them when I was working at IT. For things like that should I leave them in the skill's section?
Many of the classes I've been taking for my MSc have a practicum section where you use what you have been studying in class. eg, last semester I took a class on agile processes. The in class part was all seminars that required us to do research on specific agile processes and then give a 3 hour presentation. The practical part was we developed a system (a timetracking/billing) system in a small team using XP.
anyways thanks for the help.

Just wondering if anyone wants to give me some comments on my resume. The career services at my university is having a resume 'checkup' in a couple weeks and I want to get my resume all ready for that.
Anyways my resume can be found online at (edit) new version is at http://www.pongomail.com/resume/lkstitch-resume2.pdf

Good question, do Canadian's need to list visa status even? For us we just need a TN-1 NAFTA visa which from what I understand is extremely easy to get (you just need an offer letter from the company and pay a $50 fee).
Is this correct?
