Hi guys,
I need a solution asap. I want to ensure that 1 & only 1 client can post to my jsp/servlet. Given Servlet A, Servlet B or any other client on the same machine as Servlet A can post to A. In others words, I need to be able to stop users from saving an html client to the desktop and posting to Servlet A. This is really important.

Does anybody know how to find the registration id to access Sun's Db because I hope its not the one we used to access the test because I don't have that id anymore. All I have is the test confirmation email? an ideas
I received my voucher to via email. It said this:

Now what do I do with this voucher? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
I'm lost. I know there is someway to filter. There has to be logically. But I guess I just don't know enough to do it. Thats why I came to the big guns for help. For instance post to Logic distates for me to parse the string of the server veriable (if there is such a variable) to tell me the identity ( ) of the object posting to my response page to see if its a legal client. But does java provide me with a mechanism for doing this?

Help!!! said the kid.

I have some html clients created by some very old cgis posting data to a JSP/servlet. Now this JSP/servlet is open to the entire world, but I want only those certain cgis to be able to post to it. In other words, I don't want users to create their own forms and post my jsp/servlet. The clients can only be the clients that reside on machine. Its very important that this doesn't happen. Does anyone know if there is a way to identity to client in jsp or stop others from posting to your servlet in JSP.

Thanks in advance.

Hello people,

I guess I'm here to do the following :
1)Vent a little anger about the Tiger Exam '
Anybody else thought that it was lame to not even tell the developer how many questions were right/total after 5 hours of testing. I was like 'noooooo'. And while I understand the logic (Sun doesn't what the passing score is, what questions Sun will keep etc), I was very dissappointed. So here's my suggestion for future beta test "Give us a percentage right/total not pass/fail". I guess I'm upset because I still have no idea how I did on a test that I took over 3 weeks ago (Feb 28). I come to the site everyday for hope.
2) Attempt to understand how scoring/reimbursement works.
I was under the impression that we just paid $49 to Prometric versus paying approx. two bucks for the test. Is Sun going to send me a check? :-)

3) Get some java 5.0 ?'s answered by our experts on the java ranch
a) Did any of you think that the exam was 50% really easy versus 50% really hard?
b) I've been building java applications since Java 1.1 and I felt I got a few answers wrong because of assumptions I made based on previous versions of Java like the "private static void main ?" urrrrrrrrgh. I don't think tricky questions like that should be on the test.
c) I wonder why bit manipulations were on the test? Has anyone ever used them in there profession?
d) Anybody thought the drag & drop enviroment needed improvement?
e) 5 hours to take the test. With all that tracing. It needed to more like 7, just so we could leave comments.

PS. I just want to say "Even though I sound bitter, I love Java. I have been using it to design applications for universities and banks since 1998. Java & I are married for life"
