Does this book compare/differentiate or reference websphere server. Will this book help if migrating from websphere server to JBoss servers?

thanks,

Well, you ask someone "Hey, is the SCEA a good exam?" And that person says "Yeah, it's a great exam. I totally vouch for that exam." The person that says good things about the exam is the 'voucher.'

Dictionary.com - Vouch



Actually, to take the exam, you buy a 'Voucher' from Sun. You pay for the voucher, and then, using the id associated with the voucher, you go online and book your exam sitting through the "testing center's" website. You pick the time and location where you want to sit the exam, and when that's finished, the online tool says "what is your voucher id", and you type that in, and then you go and write your exam. The testing center then uses that 'voucher' id to get some $$$ from Sun to cover the cost of the testing, so you don't actually pay the testing center, Sun does, through the money you paid them for the voucher.

Is it a good system? Well, I'd 'vouch' for it.

This is an example of Cameron 'Voucher'

Hey Yang,
In other words you have to pay for the exam to Sun first thru their website and then Sun will send you a code(voucher/code). You can use this voucher to setup a time to take the exam thru the prometric centers or who ever does those exams for you area thru Sun.

And just so you know this is a 3 part exam so you will have to take three tests before you are certified, so three vouchers.

Good luck

Anyone have a SCEA 5(CX-310-052) voucher that can be used in US.
Send me a PM if you have one and wanna get rid of it.

Hi Paul,

Just wanted to drop you a note of appreciation about this chapter extract. I found this extract to be very clearly detailed and explained.

Anybody interestered here is the link http://pragprog.com/titles/pbdp/debug-it

Thanks for your response Paul. By approaches I was thinking in terms of difference when the whole code is on my box vs when application is integrated on glass.

But I looked thru the TOC of your book looks very informative and helpful. Hope to get hold of one sometime.

Good luck with your book.

With so much stress on Continuous Integration and Agile methodologies, shorter development cycles. Do you explain different approaches to debug? During unit testing? Integration testing? Performance testing etc.

DO you touch/talk about how to debug when working on a multiOS? Is this book specific to any vendor/tools? Sorry if you have already stated this before.

Thanks,

We have been pushing this methodology in addition to developer/development team reviews for couple reasons:

1: We spend substantial time at the end of our interations/projects to document lesson learnt and as a result developed a checklist for developers. This is based on experience and mistakes/defects.
2. Time plays a very vital factor in delivery, but for us if you can't stick to the checklist at the minumum then its a No Go, because simple things have brought down big applications(read revenue).
3. Team reviews are helpful if its done with the right intention and teammembers take the effort, at times it was my code is fine yours if fine ....good thanks bye.

My two cents ...external entities are advantages depending on how its implemented.

Steve,

You may have already found the answer. If not here is a little help.

-vmargs -Xmx256M For large-scale development you should modify your VM arguments to make more heap available. This example allows the Java heap to grow to 256 MB. This may not be enough for large projects.

THe above is from ibm developers guide redbook.

Another tip from my personal experience, minimising WSAD 5.x window also releases any unused memory by the tool. I have verified this from the CPU utilization/memory usages.

hope this helps...

Hi guys,

I would recommend a combination of HF EJB and Mark cades book to study. HF EJB is definetly my favourite book and recommendation for learning EJB for anyone . Use Mark cades book, get the topic and read only those topics in HFEBJ(only Exam objectives), do the drills.

I had 1 day on MarkCade and 2 day with HFEJB before I took the exam, i have 3 years experience working with EJB 1.2.

This was an interesting article i had read sometime back....

JNDI Caching

Please see this is in reference to J2EE 1.3... you may wanna check how applicable this is to JEE 5.0.

Thanks,
