Hi friends
My long wait for SCJD result is finally over.
My preparation included the following books and links:
SCJD Exam with J2SE 1.4 - Mehran Habibi
The book is very good and i highly recommend it for SCJD.
Java Developer's Handbook - Philip Heller
This book is also very good.
www.javaworld.com
The articles by Allan on threading are very good
www.javaranch.com
Without javaranch it was impossible for me to pass this exam. Thanks to the explanations given by Philip, Andrew, Ken, and many more.
Last but not the least i used softSCJD simulator to gain confidence. It was of great help in writing the locking and search code and in writing the design decisions. Though i did not use it extensively, I thank them for giving me the simulator for review.
It is time to do some EJB

Thank you very much Peter and Andrew.
Peter: softSCJD is like a simulator for SCJD exam. It has a sample hotel booking application, tutorial on swing and File I/O.
The design/requirement/implementation of the sample application was very generic and I found it quite useful, especially their record locking code
I received it for review very late so I couldn't spend much time on it. I only read the sections of their document in which I had confusions in SCJD project.
I don't know what is the cost of the product because of some problem with Internt Explorer in my machine I could never open their website (www.Softlearn-Systems.com) I will suggest that product only to someone who has just started or in early stages of the SCJD assignment implementation or to someone who is not very confident about his implementation of SCJD assignment.

First off, congrats!!! nice score!!!
My question:
Did you use logging in your project? Or did you use the console?

I did not use JDK 1.4 logging API.
The requirement does not mention that we MUST use logging.
I have seen few posts where people have passed with no deduction in marks because of not using logging. The application in softSCJD also did not use logging. This convinced me that use of logging is not going to make any difference in my score.
