Hi Kaise,

Check out the Basic Tools in SDK documentation. The documentation can be downloaded here.

If you are using a Unix-like system, you can type "man java" and "man javac" at the command line to get details about the command-line options. On any platform, you can type "java" and "javac" to get a short list of the most commonly used options. I think there is a help option that might give more details. These would be a good place to start. For further details, the link to the documentation above is good, too.

Don't worry about going into to much depth. The information on the basic tools page as sited above is all you will need. Remeber this exam focuses on general knowledge of Java not being an expert in any area.

That Basic Tools page looks like it goes into as much depth as is possible. In fact, I think that is the official documentation for ALL of the command-line options that you can use. I would think that it contains more information than you will need for the SCJA test.

I agree.

Of course I would also keep in mind there will maybe be at most one question on the exam about java or javac options so don't waste to mcuh time on it. Stick to learning all the different parts of JSEE.

Not all the command-line options of java and javac are tested in the exam. Focus on those options mentioned in the SCJA objectives. If you're not familiar with the options or have never used them before, the Basic Tools section may provide further explanation with examples on how to use them.
