I did the SCJA beta exam today. It was relatively easy but i still feel it’s quite different from SCJP. SCJP tests very deep in your core java skills. But SCJA tests the overall understanding on the entire java platform (standard, enterprise and mobile) as well as other related technologies often used along with java such as UML, XML and HTML. But the important factor is the exam doesn’t go very deep into these technologies and just tests your understanding of these technologies.
If you want to certify that you have a good understanding of the overall java platform and the kind of applications you can develop using various editions of java and you understand how other technologies such as XML and HTML etc works along with java and to show you can interpret basic UML diagrams the SCJA certification is ideal. But if you want to show your expertise on core java then go for SCJP.

Just had a situation where there was a need for a global error handler method for windows applications in .NET. This handler should be invoked whenever there is an unhandled error raised in the windows application.
A way to do this is handling the ThreadException event of the Application object.
/// The main entry point for the application.
static void Main()
private static void Application_ThreadException(object sender, ThreadExceptionEventArgs e)
Maybe there are other methods of doing this as well. But for a single threaded application this seemed ok.

On the publishing side two of my poems are available at http://www.poetry.com/ titled "The Mask" and "From My Hearts Core". And the poem titled "From My Hearts Core" was published in a couple of poetry editions. But it has been a very long time since I did write anything else after that (a good 2 to 3 years)
Check it out at the following URL:
So at the moment i have two feeds exposed in my blog which i dont think its a very good idea. So until i find a way to redirect anyone subscribed to my atom feed to my rss smart feed i will be sticking with both feeds in my blog.

So quoting from the blog entry for anyone who was confused as me:
Beta 1 RC is available - "It's a feature complete version for Beta 1"
Beta 1 for Indigo (the real Beta 1, not the RC of Beta 1) is coming in
