In an attempt to professionalize the ranks of Java programmers and make sure Java is being used in the correct "100% Pure Javaquot; way, Sun Microsystems has set up its Java certification program. Java Certification Exam Guide for Programmers and Developers lets you prepare for the program's two exams--one for programmers and another for developers. The text highlights the (often selective) material these exams will likely cover, beginning with Java basics, such as keywords and class declarations, and continuing with more advanced topics, such as exceptions, threads, and user interface design in both Java Developer's Kit (JDK) 1.0.2 and JDK 1.1 programming. Chapters also test you with sample review questions and provide answers. Where appropriate, the author includes material that will ostensibly not be covered on these exams.
The second section of the book focuses on the developer's exam, which tests your knowledge of object-oriented design (OOD), as well as Java syntax and trivia. The author clues you into some Java-specific ways (for example, abstract classes and interfaces) to apply your knowledge of class design in a new language, but you'll need to have some background in design to understand them. An especially noteworthy chapter covers the conventions of writing javadoc-style comments, which create "automatic" HTML-based help for Java classes. The book closes with two "official" sample tests from Sun Microsystems. Though this book won't be useful to the general Java programmer, it can be a valuable resource to those seeking Sun's credentials for Java development.From the Back Cover:
