Here's some proof that it is ok to use Java 1.5

I took URLyBird v1.2.1.

General Con: 100 88
Documentation: 70 60
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 28
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 40
Network Server: 40 30

I'm happy with my score, but if feels bad to not get any comments on what was not good. That's the way you learn new things, isn't it?

Many thanks to everyone on the SCJD forum!

Congratulations Sakke

Did you use any of the new features of JDK 1.5? If so, which ones would you say were most helpful to you?

Regards, Andrew

I used generics, autoboxing/unboxing and enhanced for loop. Generics made the code clearer in many parts, at least when you get used to the syntax.
I use the IntelliJ IDEA IDE for development, which has a refactoring button that generifies the whole project, so that was a breeze.

The title of the certification is "Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform". No version stated. I haven't received any papers yet, so I cannot tell what they will say. At least my SCJP certification states 1.4 in CertManager. I will be in touch when I receive the papers.
Nick, I see your SCJD has a version. Did you have a version displayed in CertManager?

I didn't state in my documentation why I used 1.5. I thought that would be unnecessary. I don't think anyone using 1.4 states in the documentation why they chose 1.4 instead of 1.3 either.

Special thanks to you Andrew for all your postings. I found quite many helpful ideas in them.

cheers,
Sakke

We could take SCJD Tiger beta, and try out the new requirements.

Ko Ko, the title of the certification is "Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform". There is no version stated anywhere.

I received the certification via mail. No version number is shown, simply "Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform".

cheers,
