Hello all,

I am in houston now. I am thinking of moving to Boston early next yr. I dont have much of financial experience and have roughly 5 yrs of java/j2ee experience. If anyone knows a good contracting company that has a good client base in Boston area who'll also do H1B transfer, could you please PM me? How much billing rate can I expect?

thanks

Dont think ThoughtWorks is the only company where you can learn. As someone pointed out, join a startup company. nothing can match that.

Getting into thought works is not that difficult. I had an experience with those people. I applied for a job in US from germany. i was a student then. after a month i received a mail asking me to solve three problems with java/C. I did. And I received a call from HR in UK for an appointment for telephonic interview. I did attend the telephone interview. Just a plain tech interview. During that they relealized I am still a student and will be finishing masters in 4 months. I have clearly mentioned that in the covering letter and CV. Then they turned down the offer.

This just shows how "efficient" the people there are. I was really pissed off at them for wasting my time like this. ThoughtWorks gained this much popularity just becos Martin Fowler works there i guess!

My suggestion would be Dont go for it!

I forgot to add this: I was interviewed for a position in b'lore. I have also mentioned clearly that I am looking for a position anywhere in US in the covering letter.

Non-compete agreement talks mainly abt trade secrets and stuff. I got this from monster:

Is non-complete is the only part of the contract that could dictate terms on my termination by will?

Hello all,

Is bonded labor strictly legal in US? There was this small clause in the contract that forbids me ditching the employer for a year and not to be employed by a client. How far is this legal??

thanks

Yes its not gauranteed. A simple solution would be changing the timestamp of the parent JSP.

Hello all,

I have an offer from the UK..I have arnd 2 years experience in J2EE...The offer is 26K pounds+bonus. The place is somewhere in west sussex. I am not even sure whether its a good deal or not as I dont know the cost of living there. I'm from Germany.

With some tax calculator I found out that take home is arnd 1600Pounds. Is this a normal salary in the UK for a Masters graduate with 2 years experience? I did not deduct the Health insurance from the take home. I dont know how much it would be. Could anyone throw some light on that?(% of health insurance from the gross, employer contribution to the health insurance,etc)

thanks

There was one resume that I liked, but the candidate was gone in no time.We interviewed 7 candidates, over 2 months to finally get one decent recruit.



you forgot to post the position in the "Jobs offered" section of this forum

This might be a dumb questiuon but I am a bit confused at this our regarding transactions in general...

Considering the code:
...
Context initContext = new InitialContext();

DataSource ds1 = (DataSource)initContext.lookup("java:comp/env/db1");
Connection con1 = ds1.getConnection();
DataSource ds2 = (DataSource)initContext.lookup("java:comp/env/db2");
Connection con2 = ds2.getConnection();

UserTransaction tx = ejbContext.getUserTransaction();
tx.begin();
//use the connection to update database 1.
//use the connection to update database 2.
tx.commit();
con1.close();
con2.close();
...


I was wondering, when the user starts a transaction ( tx.begin() , both databases are locked? So the transaction is associated with two databases? What if one is oracle the other is sqlserver? Basically both databses must successfully commit, which I think is just no way to control that...

Miki



database as a whole is never locked. If 2 resources are invloved, it's not needed to be in 2PC protocol. It can be in 2 phase commit when you have distributed-transaction-enabled transaction manager. In non-2PC situation, i think each operation would involve in normal transaction. rollback of one would cause rollback of other too. If I am wrong, correct me.

Prashant,

You are very right this seems to be an inconsistency in the spec. The spec says:

So since afterCompletion() does have client security context, accessing resource managers and enterprise beans should be allowed, but is not. I'm afraid you will just need to remember it for the exam :-).

See also the debate about the same issue.

Miki



Its a stateful session bean. So the client's identity will be accessible in all the methods spanning from ejbCreate until the end of ejbRemove. Though afterCompletion() runs in unspecified transaction, it runs for the same client.

Hi Manish,

I think yours primary key class is not seems to be ok. You have to implement serializable. Because the container might be maintains the primary key objects in the secondary storage, when the corresponding EJBObjects take rest( I mean the corresponding Entity Bean instance goes to the pooled state from read state).That is my guess, iam not sure about why primary key class should implements Serializable.

Regards
Kasimurugan R.



In the pooled state, bean instances looses its state, ie its not associated with any data. So I dont think the container would store the primary keys. It needs to be serialized because we have getPrimaryKey() method in the component interface, which means the PrimaryKey instance should be wired to the client. Hence should be serialized.
anything thats possible in plain java class is possible in EJB..only that EJB spec says somethings are not advisable like for instance, multi-threading.
comp/env/ejb is private environment for AdminEJB...the actual JNDI location should be java:/ejb/CacheHomeEJB
