This page is my
humble effort to pay tributes to Java (Java is a registered trademark of
Sun Microsystems), and to all those, who helped me learn it. Two years
back I started learning Java. I approached it as a "hot fix", which in
many senses it is. But as time passed and I studied it more thoroughly, I
began to realize that Java is a full fledged programming platform that has
provided programmers with many robust and flexible "hot fixes". Unlike
other programming languages, the goal of Java is to reduce the complexity
for programmers. It has wrapped up so many complex tasks in language
features and libraries that can at times make those tasks trivial - almost
like an "hot fix". So despite the much hyped performance problem, the
promise of Java is tremendous. It is this promise which motivated me to
make this effort. Hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did.
This page is primarily intended for the professionals who
want to prepare for the Sun Certified Programmer for Java2 platform exam
(referred to as SCPJ2), but it is readily accessible to any programmer who
wants to master the fundamentals of the language.
Talking about Java without referring to Applets is missing
half the fun. For years Java applets have brought web pages to life. You
will find a few of them - here as well.
A mock test for SCPJ2 aspirants. This mock exam contains
29 questions based on the curriculum specified for SCPJ2 for version 1.4.
(And hence does not contains questions on java.awt and java.io package).
Go ahead even if you are already certified. This mock test is guaranteed
to thrill you!
