Hi Tom,

as the Sybase EAServer is no java server you cannot use the java command line options Mark mentioned. You have to start your server using the debug option instead:

The options like port etc. can be configured on the "Java Debug" tab of the server properties using EAServer Manager.

You can find more detailed information in chapter 11 of the EAServer Programmer's Guide. There is a whole section on "Debug Java Components".

Best regards,

Jan
FYI: The link above also contains a sample chapter (#3: Advanced Exception Handling Concepts).

Hi Dennis,

any object in Java has a toString() method. If you do something like

this is converted to

If you need a color class with a different string representation than the provided one, you have to create your own MyColor class and implement your own to string method.

In general a class should only throw "meaningful" exceptions, so a CustomerDAO class could throw a SQLException, while a Customer class should not. In this example the Customer class could catch the SQLException and throw a more meaningful business exception (maybe as a wrapper of the original exception).

Just my 2 cents,

We used Jakarta POI to import an uploaded file into the database, and it was very simple! And - by the way - I like the meaning (Poor Obfuscation Implementation).

According to amazon.com the book is written by Stephen Stelting and Stephen A. Stelting. Who of the two is online?

After nearly six looong weeks of waiting I just received my results:


General Con: 100 92
Documentation: 70 61
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 28
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 30
Network Server: 40 40
Total: 400 361


I have no idea, why I lost 10 points on the data store, but ... who cares

Hi,

I am really sorry that you failed, but I don't think, that you failed as a matter of rounding down. You need 68% to pass, you got 67.6% so you failed (not by 1% but by 0.4%).

Still, really sorry

Hi Mark,

personally I would not mention any certification "in progress" on my CV. Instead I would mention your current "project" during an interview. Why?
1. What does "in progress" mean? Did you buy the voucher? Did you download the assignment? Did you start your implementation? Anybody can do this...
2. I am german and I work in Germany, and my feeling is, that most employers don't know very much about the different certifications, so your SCJP says you are certified on Java, and a SCJD "in progress" needs some explanations, to be an useful information (again: interview).
But of course it is your decision, so if you want to put it on your CV, you can write something like this:

Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform 1.x
Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform (in Arbeit)

Maybe there are better wordings, but thats the first thing that comes into my mind.

Hope that helps,

Jan

P.S.: If you need a good online dictionary try LEO English-German Dictionary.

If you have a look at the cover, it says "Exams 310-XXX & 310-XXX", the publisher (Osborne) does not even mention this book (yet)...
Maybe there will be a new developer exam in the near future, but I don't think that Amazon will know first

Hi Stef,

In Sun's Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language I don't find anything on the declaration of arrays. In my opinion you should always have a Style Guide and for the certification assignment I would adhere to Sun's Style Guide. As far as your declaration question is concerned: The most important thing is, that your array declarations are consistent (I personally prefer to ).

Just my $0.02,

Jan
Hi Rob,

how long did it take you to fullfill your assignment? I saw your postings in this forum, and I have the feeling you were really quick! Did you work full-time or part-time on the assignment?

Anyway, best luck for the essay. I am very curious to see your results

Jan
Hi Alex,

many congratulations

Your score is terrific! What's next (after )?
