Thank you very much for your prompt and precise answer!

Good luck with your book!

Best regards,
Claudio
Quite a few years went by since I got my SCJP 1.4 certification and I definitely would like to brush up my Java skills!
Java has gone through a huge development since then and I couldn't keep pace with it.

With the help of this book would it be possible to fill this huge knowledge gap?

Best regards!
As a developer I specialized in J2EE technologies but recently I'm getting more and more interested in a full JS stack. For the time being I'm just trying to understand the basics of these technologies and how they compare to other Java-based frameworks. I am especially curious to find out if MEAN can speed up the development process and reduce the time-to-market with respect, for instance, to a Spring.

Besides I would like to hear other people'e experience of how to migrate one's knowledge from J2EE to JS technologies.

Thank you in advance for any piece of advice you can provide!

Best regards,
Hi all,

I just sent an email to Oracle complaining about the new certification requirements. I recommend everybody do the same to try put some pressure on Oracle to reconsider their decision.

Cheers
Hello,

I'm not sure I understand the business model behind Android application development and publishing.

My understanding is that there are two models:
- selling applications (having clients pay for getting applications)
- have (typically free) applications show ads and get money from advertisers when clients are shown commercials

Some companies might not want to get revenues from Android applications (and other mobile terminals) but rather aim at giving their user one more way to access their on line services.

Is this correct? Am I missing something here?

Thank you for any help on this.

Best regards,

Mike,

you are mixing web app with native application development.

In the former most part of the work is done server-side and you can customize the view (normally HTML) to suit the terminal/OS characteristics.
In the latter (normally) most/all of the work is performed locally by the terminal.

Which one is better, depends (as usual) on application requirements.

Claudio

Hello,

developing Android applications is great but most of the time what people need is being able to write the same applications for different platforms (Android, iPhone, Symbian, etc). What advice do you have for dealing with such a requirement?
Do you recommend developing native applications or (when possible) would it be preferable to develop web applications with a web presentation layer adapted for a specific OS/terminal?

Thank you in advance and best regards,

Dear Andrew,

thank you for your reply.

One thing I appreciated about the Head First books I read so far was the focus on the exam topics. I mean the authors made clear what topics were important for the cert exam. I believe the same holds for HF PMP.

Regarding CAPM, are there suggestions, hints and the like about what might be in the exam or not? Or is the book focused only on PMP certification exam?

Thank you again,
Claudio
Dear authors,

I already used books of the Head First series to study for two certifications (SCWCD and SCBCD, by the way) and I really appreciated the way difficult, possibly boring matters are treated and explained in an entertaining way.

I am currently interested in PMI minor certification, Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) and I would like to know if your book is also useful for studying for this certification.

Thank you in advance for your time,

Claudio
Hi Kris,

I would like to know if you book presents a specific Ajax framework like GWT or Sarissa or if it provides a more general description of how to approach and develop an Ajax project.

In any case, do you recommend using a framework or rather a plain Javascript+DHTML+CSS+... approach when facing an Ajax project?

Thank you in advance,

Claudio
Dear Marc,

I'm looking through my Larman book now and my underlinings end at the end of chapter 8. So I guess I only read the first 8 chapters. It looks like the subsequent chapters are nothing more than the artifacts covered in the UML book, though you might get a clearer picture of when to use them with Larman.



Mmm, I almost finished reading all the book and I found some test-related stuff in many more chapters than just the first twelve. But anyway the first ones are undoubtedly the most important ones as far as the test is concerned.

I didn't need it though because it all seemed pretty obvious, when to choose one artifact over another.



Good for you! I wish I could say the same. You must have a good deal of experience in OOA/D.

Thank for your reply,
Claudio
Which chapters of Larman are necessary for the exam? Should one study all of them? Is it possible to skip a few chapters? I coudn't find a reliable answer to this question.
In a previous post somebody claimed that only the first 12 chapters are to study but I hardly believe it.

Any indication would be appreciated. 486 is going to be discontinued at the end of the year but the last available test is going to be on November 7th, so I'm really in a hurry to finish my preparation and it would be very useful to skip a few chapters.

Thanks and regards,

Claudio

486 will be discontinued at the end of the year but nevertheless I'm going to study for it and try to pass the test. I heard many people say that 486 is a very valuable test (even if a bit outdated as it refers to an old version of UML).

Preparing for an exam that is going to be canceled in a short time might sound stupid but I'm really interested in analysis and design so I don't care much about the test but rather the contents of the exam.

Besides I guess it's rather easy to prepare for 633 and 634 or other OOAD tests (like OMG's) once you master the 486 contents. What I don't feel like is to study for a particular product (Rational Rose, in the case of 635) because I don't want to tie myself with a vendor, but this is a matter of personal choice.

I'm not sure I answered your question, just my 2 cents...

Claudio
Wowowowowowow!!
I just came back from holidays and look what a nice surprise!
Thank you Seema, Valentin and Javaranch, you made my return to work much more enjoyable!!

Now I have the preparation kit, the HF EJB book, almost no idea about EJB technology and many concerns about EJB cert. OK, I just need to find a little motivation to start studying for the exam... (If just J2EE were not so fashionable, ) Maybe in January 2007....

Next test is IBM 486 (OOAD), though, before they cancel it at the end of the year

Thank you again!!!
