In addition to the code tags, please also consider the following...
When posting: Be Specific
Asking a general question, expect a general answer.
Use descriptive titles. "Need Help" or "noob question" doesn't tell us anything, and therefore we cannot help.
Think about what you're posting
Has it been asked before? Do a search on the forum.
Please provide as much information as possible. Do not simply say "It does not work". Provide error descriptions, and the appropriate line(s) which produces the error.
Do Not Double Post Or Cross Post
If you haven't received any responses to your post, try asking it in a different way On The Same Thread.
If you think you have posted in the wrong forum, let me know, by sending me a Private Message or Reporting the thread and I might be able to move it.
We are all adults here, let us act like it. Do not like something someone said or done? Report the post. Do not engage in flame wars. Behave like kids and I will treat you like kids.
This Forum is for Java and Java related questions. ie any Java question, connecting to a DB using Java, JSP/Servlets, etc.
When posting code, it might be a good idea to "Disable Smilies in This Post"
Please don't email, or use the PM to ask a question. Don't ask people to email you. In turn, please don't email someone an answer. You never know when your question/answer might help someone else.
If you find the answer before someone has answered your post, how about posting your solution? Again you might help someone else in the future.
If you have some cool code that you would like to share, feel free to post it.
