Just confused why there is no test center open on weekend in Singapore
I plan to take SCEA in next 3 months
Here I want to ask some questions
1. Will the SCEA change your life dramatically? that is, will you become an architect after you become a SCEA?
2. I will work for a company that uses eXtreme Programming. Is a SCEA still useful? for XP
3. Is there some SCEA still working as a coder or developer?

Good Day !
I'm looking for some opinions. What is the most commonly used way to initialize and configure log4j under Tomcat ? The three means I have read about are :
a) a text properties file
b) an xml properties file
c) doing the aboe with a intialization servlet.
I'll be using log4j in some custom tags being accessed from JSP pages running on Tomcat.
I'm ordering some books on this topic, however, it would be great if I can get a jump start in this area while I'm waiting !
Thanks !

I believe Mike meant that you should download the source code for Struts and take a look at how the Struts team has solved the problem.

Yes, you got me

Just an outsider question. It seems that there are lots of open projects, each of them has its own FileUpload, or even other similar modules, like logging, etc.
In fact, why they do so? They cannot just use the same module, or share their modules to each other? I feel it is too difficult to manage so much technologies that ususally share the same functions.

Thy maven , actually Jakarta libary is the offical lib of our comany. When we need a new function, we will consult whether Jakarta has already solved it.

I am searching for a open source enterprise search engine and no luck. Do you know any (preferably in java). Thank you.

Jakarta lucene is an index engine , you can build your own search engine based on it
You may aslo pay some attention to Lucene Sandbox
SearchBlox is an commercial search engine based on lucene. Though it is not open source or free, but it give you an idea on how to use lucene to build your own search engine.
Nutch is a nascent effort to implement an open-source web search engine.
Also, our company has a commercial search engine based on lucene, with our own automatic taxonomy support.

I have only used fileupload. One of the problem i faced is when the
enctype="multipart/form-data" ,all other input fields values except file can not be processed. Is there any workaround for that.

You may consult how struts handle this.
When you are using the SandBox component of commons project. You must be very careful in testing. Actually we have used some sandbox component in our production release. The fact is that
1. we need that component urgently
2. we dont have enough time to write our own component.
Keep an eye on the sandbox component you are using, changed quickly as they improved.

Im trying to send emails from my J2EE application, I was coding it all by hand now I was reading the forum, checked Jakarta commons web page and saw this email component. Is it useful ?
