An am using Eclipse ( latest ) and when I create a project targeting 4.2 Jelly Bean I created a default "Android" project with a "Blank" Activity.

The exercise is to create a Dialog without an activity.

My book says to click open Main.Xml and add edits.

I can't find Main.xml, can anyone tell me where to actually find this file? Was Main changed to another name in 4.2 and the book maybe targeting an older version?

Hey, since ouYa just came out and it's in Java can we get a OuYa stable(forum). I know it's game development, but it has it's own emulator, SDK, and the rest so it's much more than a subset of Android.

You'll need to supplement the old book to learn about the new features in Java 5 and 7. (There were a number of syntax additions in those too versions, which is why I didn't mention Java 6.) If you want a book, you could read O'Reilly's Java Developers Notebook for 1.5 and Packt's New Features in Java 7. Or read about the features online - you'll at least get the most frequently used ones this way.



Thanks!

I have 2 books for 2006 when I programmed java. I have been doing c# since and I'm preparing to take a java cert and I need to brush up on just learning the language a little. I have Katherine's cert book. Can I use an a
Old book from 2006 and not much has changed or get a new one.

I don't need to learn design patterns just the language and it seems most book teach to program and not just the language.

Thanks,

Ignore this question. I called Oracle.
Is the Katherine book good for passing the new Oracle SE 6 exam? I know it was good for the old Sun exam, but what about the new exam from oracle?
I work an an IOS developer, and I had a java certification 10 years ago.

I would like to get certified in Java as it relates to Android phones as I will be making native apps soon. Can someone help tewll me which path I should take to get certification related to Mobile? Oh, excited about ouYa....
The problem is that I am developing for BlackBerry and stupid me didn't think it was a compact framework like .net

I just have to find a way for the blackberry to query the database from the phone and since the rim package only allows an SD card, i guess I have to use web services.

Thanks for the help all,
Nick
well it finds oracle.jdbc.*

but not java.sql.*

Is there another link I have to supply to find that library in eclipse ?

if this helps my code is this
package com.rim.manager.approval;

import java.sql.*;
import java.io.*;
import oracle.jdbc.driver.*;

Everything validates except for java.sql
yeah im using eclipse and I found the lib I added "ojdbc5.jar" to my project. I guess i'm not referencing correctly.

Thanks,
Nick
I can't find where to download the actual jar to use my java.sql method calls.

Can someone give me a link to download the actual jar? Or is this someone in my java 2 sdk and I just need to find it? I haven't written java in 5 years, so i'm really rusty.

Thanks,
Nick
I have a system in which every work order is contained within an operation. I have set them up so that an estimate and work order is linked by an order detail.
My question is an estimate can exists by itself and so can a work order exist by itself.
multiple estimates can have details within one work order and vice versa
I have defined it where an estimate is contained inside an operation and a work order is also?
My question is this right or should the work order contain estimates.
