Well, apparently I started off with all the bad ideas, isn't that something special, and now I know all the bad ideas to start learning Java with! LOL D

Tony, I had read a little in Sun's tutorial and it felt real good, even better than book I have, a Deitel's How to program in Java. But I thought since I bought this book, and what the heck. I'm not really good at reading a few books at the same time, so would you recommend learning only from Sun's tutorial?

Thanks a lot for yall's help!!!

Later!

Hi all,

Currently I'm pursuing a Master's degree in computer information system, which lies in between the business and technology, and my job involves data processing, networking and programming in non-OO languages like VB. In the long run I'm aiming at software product development or project manager and the alikes. I really enjoy dealing both with people and code.

The reason I'm considering a Sun's certificate is because I think Java definitely has the future, and I want to have a solid understanding of it. Of course at the same time, it would be nice if I could show with hard evidence to the prospect employers that I do have this understanding.

So here is the question, should I go with the programmer->developer, or just go with the architect, if at all? SCJP is recommended by Sun for architect but not a prerequisite, so I'm wondering how heavily it weighs in studying for architect.

And do I need to go through a few solid years of hands-on coding to qualify for like, a position in project management? Is it a more practical plan if I do that?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi all,

I'm having a very annoying problem. Everytime when I try to run an application from DOS prompt using java blahblah.class, it gives me this error, "Exception in thread "main"".

I can compile the source code using javac or NetBean just fine. And the application runs in NetBean.

I already set the path to "C:\C:\j2sdk1.4.2_04\bin" (Without quotes in environment settings).

Anyway, spent almost an afternoon trying figure it out but it just got very frustrating.

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Keith,
I have to say I really admire your spirit. I've had chances to do things I love for my life, but didn't have enough courage to go with them. So I'm blowing the horn for you, way to go.
There is no reality with a clear line seperating black and white. They are all mixed up. So don't be upset with negativity, for it's not on the side against you, but part of you, just like possitivity.
How many times have you been tripped by the obstacles you had already seen? Probably not many. We get tripped by the things we don't see. So if you are having a hard time advancing, there must be something you don't see that's playing tricks with you.
If I were you, I'd study three things.
1) Me. What are my advantages and disadvantages. What people say in forum are true? Since they've said it, there must be some reason to it. What is it? How am I going to balance it?
2) Employers. What do they need? How am I going to fulfill their needs? Email them, call them, fax them, pound them with questions and talk to them. If I couldn't get a job, at least I could get an answer that leads to one.
3) Competitors. Study them, thoroughly.
Do what you believe, since you get critisized anyway ^_^.
Keep up the good fight and things will work out for you.
Phil,
PS, do you have to be an employee? Why not an employer?
