Only a guess, not sure what is the correct answer, (just started to learn EJB3. )

How about you make the parent bean detached from the EM, (is there any method in em to do this job? clear() will detach all the managed entities), and then do em.remove(akid)? then if you want to use the parent, em.find(parent.class, xxx)...

Just got mine! It's exciting, but the time is too short for me. I am a totally beginner for the JWS. Hope I can pass it, don't want to waste the free voucher. :roll:
Dear all,
I had a voucher for ibm 141 xml exam which will be expired on this coming June. But it seems that I can't take it. So can I return it to ibm cert or can I sell it to somebody else? Thanks a lot!
Best,
Joe
Hi Matt,
Thanks a lot! It is very nice to see the suggestions you give to me!

If you business experience is the way to go. I think applying for the retail sale job. It will be your booting camp training you to communicate interface more effectively and think on your feet. You do not need MBA to succeed in business. Your MS is fine. Business people are shrewd thinkers. Their thinking are not outthere in space. Their thinking are very practical. Their competitive edges is outthink others in practicality and in the right time.
Ask around those established retail companies specially private ones. I think best is walk-in. No matter what, you have an edge over other competitors because you know Chinese language. Currently, labor market favor multilingo candidates with knowledge in Russian, Chinese, Japanese, or German.


You ring the bell to me. Yeah, that is definately another way to go. But originally, my though is combine my programming and business degree/knowledge togerther, to get a position of system analyst or something like that in a software/consulting company. (doing analysis, part of design and then implementation).
However, your suggestion is another possible way to go. I heard one of my former roomate's firend is a very successful sales man. He sells the machines/products that purify the water (for both living/drinking and industry) to china. And he earned a lot.
Anyway, I need to think about it and make a plan. Thanks a lot for listening my problem and giving me the valuable suggestions!
Best regards,

Hi Matt,
Thanks again for the reply.

All you need is open yourself up.


Yeah, that is what I am trying to do. And won't stop because of any difficulty.

There are two sides of any coin. Not all Texans are bad, you must have experience with Red-Neck attitude. Not all the professors are like that. Everything starts from you and ends from you. Try to figure why you have been treating like that. Why the Chinese gal made it? What is her secret?
Is Chinese any better?


I am sorry for I didn't say it clearly and I am very sorry for the offending to all texans by my words (I keep a good relationship with my former colleague and boss, I enjoy the time when I was student assistant in their lab. And they are texans too).
My current boss is chinese. But I did meet a lot of persons and unhappy things in this university which I never met before. Well, I am not trying to say that it is all the others' fault. But somehow, what my boss did can be called humiliated. And although the salary is low, he promised me to sponsor me GC application before I take this offer. That is why I didn't spend all the rest of my opt to seek some other jobs. But now he never wants me to talk about it and even worse, he will let me go after the current porject finished although I did a good job. So things are kind of different here from yours. You know, if I can see any hopes I won't let it go, since I am a realistic person, and I know how hard it is in the current job market. But I can't endure the humiliated behavior without seeing any hopes.
What I need is just another job, another environment. Maybe I need to go back china. Although it is hard to go back for our chinese, but at least I can get a real software engineer job there. And I never need to worry about the visa status.
Well let's see, I will keep struggling and struggling. The US industry working experience is still a dream of mine. And it is very valuable.
Thanks,
Joe

Hi Matt,
Thank you very much for the advice. Yeah, some friends also remind me that the network is the most important thing. A chinese lady got a offer to write codes in C even before she get familiar with C. Just because she know the right person. But perhaps you know that it is kind of hard to establish network here for a foreigner (I assume that you are from china too, according to your last name). Network is very important but it can't be established within short time. And for getting close to some professors, I tried that once. But it didn't work well. I am working in a kind of biology lab full-time. And I tried to work for a computer science faculty. I worried a lot about how to not let my boss know that (even I worked in my spare time, if my boss know it, I will be fired right away). And even worse, although the cs faculty was satisfied with my speed to complete the project, but it seems he doesn't care about me.(i.e. although you are good but we don't need you.) Maybe he thought I am cheap, I worked for him free. I know this campus is famous for her arrogant. And a lot professors treat their student assistants just like slaves, especially for the international students. Maybe it is the core spirit of texas(I met many mexican workers, they said they don't like this university and this small town). My boss is the same too. Since I can finish my work quickly, he is always thinking about how to fully occupy my time. He let me to watering the plants (the work should be done by the student workers), he let me take care of all kinds of the machines (the Vacuum machine, the vacuum pump, change oil, ...), he even let me to clean his yard last thanks giving. Maybe he thought it is him who offer me a chance to make a living in us, to keep a legal status in us. And I really need to thank him a lot.
Ok, stop, that is enough. I don't want to be so Annoying. But I think that explain why I am eager to get another job, feel hard to establish network with some faculties, and wants to go to a business school in somewhere else.
Your said the certification can't help me to get a job. Perhaps that is true. But it really hurts. It kills some hope, and somehow, let me lose the strength to go further with the certification.
But anyway, forget about the job, I can still learn something from the certification, and from my experience, it is better than just read some books and do some coding by myself, although it is expensive.
Again, thanks a lot for the reply and advice.
Best regards,
Joe

Hi guys,
Thank you for the replies, I appreciate that.
For the time and money, I think no one can easily say he has a lot of them to spend. But I am really tired with my current job and eagerly to be software engineer in the industry. If I can get a assistantship in the school, I don't think I lose much since my current salary is low. And most important, if the business degree can really help me a lot on landing a job related to system/business analyst or developer, or even land a job just by the business degree, I wouldn't be more happier to go to the business school.
However, if it is more possible for me to get a offer just by getting some other certification or learning other techs (e.g. .NET, Oracle) with 1 year, I would not spend another 2 years in school. So do you guys think that get both of Java and .Net certification will give one stronger boost to get a job? Or maybe I need to stay with Java, learn more on some vender tools (weblogic, webspheer, ...)?
For the opensource project, it is also hard to find a good one to work on. And I am not sure how much it can help for landing a job.
Need your advice!
Thanks,
Joe

Dear friends,
Please help me with what I should do next. I am kind of confused. I would appreciate any words, comments or suggestions. Thanks!
I got a master degree in computer science last year(since I am a foreigner, already got a B.S. in my home country, a US master seems to be a popular way to go before land a job), and I got a job working in a lab(manage a database, coding some web app and data analysis program, maintain their small LAN). Although it is hard I am still thinking of get a job in the industry. I go with java, passed SCJP, SCJD, SCWCD, SCEA I( not the whole SCEA, just part I to show that I am familiar with the J2EE background). But it seems without any industry experience, I still can't get any job. So what do you guys think what I need to do next? to spend several months to get a MCSD.net? or some other Certification(bea, ibm, oracle)? Or maybe I need to go and get a business degree(finance, accounting, mis, ...) to be stronger for a system analyst position?
What do you guys think about it? I know it is really hard to say, which way will promise me a job. But some suggestions from experienced guys always are much better than thinking about it just by myself.
Thanks a lot!

Dear all,
I need to thank you all (Andrew, Phil, Jim, Deep, Vlad, Mark, Bharat, Dushy......) very much for all the kindly help and detail&clear discussion in every detail. Without this forum, I can't make it.
The following is the my score. It is not good, but I really don't have time to make it better.
The maximum possible score is 400; the minimum to pass is 320. General Considerations (maximum = 100): 92 Documentation (maximum = 70): 69 O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30 GUI (maximum = 40): 28 Locking (maximum = 80): 44 Data store (maximum = 40): 40 Network server (maximum = 40): 40
Hi Andrew, Phil, and all the others who paid attention to the 2/3 tier design issue, now I believe that SUN does like the 2-tier/thin client design for the URLyBird assignment. I am wondering is there any way to find out why they think there is a problem with the locking at server side?
Again, thanks you all!
Good luck,
Joe

Hi there,
I am planning to take the exam and I have a question about the real exam.
Does the real exam specify the number of how many answers I need to select for a question?
Thanks a lot!
