Preparing for the Sun Certified Business Component Developer Exam

I did not have time to write recently, because I am busy preparing for the Sun Certified Business Component Developer exam. I am taking it in a little over two weeks, so this period of my blogging inactivity hopefully won't last long.

I chose the "EJB 3 in Action" as my main textbook and read EJB Core and Persistence specifications thoroughly. The last two are important to me as they operate with the language I expect to encounter at the exam. I find it not so uncommon for big vendors to use their sole own bits of terminology (for example in the web services realm).

I am also using Sun Java EE Tutorial as a refresher and contributing to JavaBlackBelt EJB 3 exams. I also find it convenient to choose NetBeans and Glassfish v2 as my playground to test some boundary cases I conceive. Generally, I am an Eclipse guy and many things in NetBeans (especially its editor) are counter-intuitive to me, but its "Verify" option is very helpful in the preparation. It basically checks whether the EJB project fulfills specification restrictions (in fact, some proper subset of them). Using reference application server saves me from checking every little doubt in the documentation, since I admit to believe in such empirical knowledge gathering. Nevertheless, I've already found some things that should be signaled by an exception, but were graciously unsaid by the server.

All in all, I've enjoyed the preparation to this exam a way better than to the SCJP one so far and hope to say the same after taking it.

    Como cuidar de teu cabelo encaracolado com produtos naturais

    Uma pergunta popular que recebemos de nossos consumidores é - como cuidar de cabelos cacheados? Como torná-los mais definidos enquanto controlo o volume? Como já sabes, se tu tens cabelos cacheados, ativadores de caracóis estão entre os produtos mais populares (e essenciais) que tu precisas ter, a fim de manter os teus caracóis e o teu volume. As perguntas são: quais são os produtos certos para mim? e onde comprá-los?

    Cuidar de cabelos encaracolados começa com a compreensão da estrutura. Um dos primeiros passos para encontrar o tratamento de cabelo encaracolado perfeito para ti é descobrir que tipo de cabelo encaracolado você tem. Neste artigo da Evan Care faremos um bom trabalho em acentuar as principais diferenças entre cabelos lisos e cabelos encaracolados.

    Ao contrário do cabelo liso, o cabelo encaracolado tem uma forma transversal elíptica. Se tu pegares os dois tipos de cabelo e cortá-los em toda a largura, tu irás perceber que o cabelo encaracolado tem uma forma oval, e que o cabelo liso tem uma forma circular quase perfeita. É esta diferença na estrutura que lhe dá o seu efeito de mola e é a razão de o cabelo encaracolado ter diferentes tipos de caracóis (2A, 3A, 4A, etc...). Quanto mais a forma elíptica é acentuada, mais o cabelo será encaracolado (4A, 4B, 4C...)

    Um ativador de caracóis com agentes naturais ajuda a remodelar a estrutura do cabelo, a torná-lo mais definido e com controle de volume. O produto age para que os fios de cabelo adiram uns aos outros e dá ao cabelo afro, por exemplo, mais definição, o que por sua vez resulta em menos frizz. Ele também garante brilho, o que ajuda a dar uma aparência mais saudável para todo o cabelo.

    Como podemos perceber, para cabelos encaracolados ressecados a hidratação é a prioridade número um, seja nos cabelos longos ou curtos. Mas isso não é tudo, cabelos encaracolados também precisam de nutrientes para fazer as pontes dissulfeto e para mantê-las. Portanto, escolher o produto certo tem que ser uma decisão assertiva. Em geral, as melhores formulações são as que contêm diferentes óleos, como murumuru, azeites de oliva e coco. Eles formam um complexo muito rico que fornece ao cabelo hidratação de longa duração, que por sua vez significa que tu não tens que finalizar teus caracóis todos os dias; Tudo em nome de mais praticidade.
