Hi Friends,
i would like to know how to check if a particular table name exists in a database (in the java program). When i give a create statement , if the table already exists it throws an exception.
I tried dropping the table first and then creating a new..that too gives a problem in cases where the table doesnt exist..can someone help me out
thanks

Hi friends,
Please do send me some suggestions to solve this problem.
The inputfile i'm trying to read has 4 fields and looks like this
Tg5_Tg0 Genename1 I 3.5
Tg5_Tg2 Genename2 I 2.5
I have used a stream tokenizer to read each field for me. I read the first token as a string.However the nexttoken() method has recognised the Tg5 and has considered the underscore as a separate token. I do not want my program to consider the underscore character as a delimiter .
Is there a way to read my first field Tg5_Tg0 as a whole string. Please do let me know
thanks

hi Mr.Coxey,
I shall definitely write about my job search , once i begin. Before sending my resume out , i would like to finish the (java) project that im currently working on. Now that im actually designing, programming and trouble shooting independantly for my project i realise the full potential of java applications. I'm having a great time with it.
thanks

hi to all,
Thank u very much. I'm really happy to have all your valuable opinions and suggestions. I do understand that SCJP is just the begining for me. I have now decided to take some courses at the univ.of colorado, denver (thanks Mr.Coxey for ur suggestions on the courses) . XML and EJB would definitely be very useful for future. These courses should help me to strengthen my knowledge.
I'm doing my research in biotechnology with full interest. As Mr.Rahul mentioned it is going to be a very difficult decision for me to move on to a different field. But i love java and the project im doing would help me out to do the microarray-chip analysis (on which im currently working )much faster.. very soon i should be able to put it on the web for all people to use my tool. I would be thankful to all who have given me the encouragement to keep going.. thanks oliver, archana, rahul, Coxey..
May be u were right william..but im waiting for the day when i can disprove u and show that IT is one field which has accepted people from any other field as long as they have the talent to reach out to it... and surely it would reward me if i work for it
thanks

Hi,
Having graduated with a double masters in Biochemistry and biotechnology , my interest turned towards Java. I did a certificate course in Java for about 3 months.As my interest in it grew i worked to get my SCJP. Thanks to the discussion forums i passed in my first attempt.
I work as a research assistant and I have started on a small project in JAVA , which would help me in saving time in some of the analysis i do routinely. With no experience in the IT industry , i'm not sure what my chances are for an entry-level position as a java programmer.
Will IT accept me ?

hi,
Thanks to discussion forums of javaranch and many other sites I passed SCJP last week. Working in a field nowhere close to IT i suddenly became interested in Java.Learnt the basics in 2 months and worked hard for a month to get my certification. Now that its over i have started on a project in java which would help in my field too...
But a question is always there in my mind..would i be give a chance in the IT field with just my SCJP and neither school or work experience in IT???
I would be happy to know the experiece of people trying to look for a job with just the SCJP..does that help???

Hi Archana,
I just passed my SCJP last week. Its about 5 years since i did a couple of courses in computers. I had switched field to biotech (im currenly a research assistant). Oflate i suddenly developed an interest in java and had been working on it on my own for about 3 months. Now that i have passed my certification i have started on a small project which would be useful also in my field. I was wondering if just the SCJP would help me in getting a job with no prior experience.. Since u have been in that position u might know better..Also i welcome anyone to give me suggestions.I love java but is there a future for me in it???
