Hey all,

I passed my exam!

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 100
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 25
Locking (maximum = 80): 80
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

All of my lost marks were in respect to the GUI. I don't really know why, i thought my GUI was good.

My GUI included:
  • Conservatively coloured alternating rows
  • Lost update detection
  • custom table model
  • asc/desc sorting on each column
  • rich error handling
  • a custom text field that accepted only numeric input as per the requirements
  • search results, search form and booking form on the same screen to aid power users
  • the ability to switch between modes at runtime
  • the ability to enable / disable the 48 hour rule


  • Only fault i have of my gui was that it didn't scale very well when re-sized and that i didn't document 1/2 of my decisions in my choices.txt.

    still, its all good... very happy to have passed! what do i do now

    cheers to Andrew and everyone who helped me out on this forum.

    , nice score.
    One questin about the GUI, it was easy to extend ?(you now the :

    Your user interface should be designed with the expectation of future functionality enhancements, and it should establish a framework that will support this with minimal disruption to the users when this occurs.
    )

    Congrats..

    I think they consider how you implement the search functionality. How the All/Exact search is accomodated in the GUI. I think I lost marks on that.

    Thanks guys. Any tips on which cert to do next?

    The telco i work for has its resources primarily invested into J2EE technologies such as EJB and Web Services. I'd like to try J2ME but i don't know if my time would be better invested into the above mentioned technology first.

    Of course theres always the lure of .NET as well.

    up to 8 weeks for postage!!!
