Hi Preety,
I have used JBuilder, Forte, and VisualAge for Java development before. One thing to be careful of is that sometimes these IDEs insert their own foundation classes in with your code, as the programs rely on them. You do not want to submit "garbage" along with your own code for the exam. VisualCafe is a prime example, so be careful.
I would use an IDE, such as JBuilder, for GUI development and maybe the rest of the code. You need to be comfortable with one of these programs: I recommend JBuilder, as Forte is a little slow.
I have just downloaded the developer's assignment, so I am beginning to look around at what I can do first. I will almost certainly use JBuilder and Forte for development.
Hope this helps. Maybe other developers with more certification experience can make some suggestions.

Hi Preety,
My assignment is to develop a client-server application to handle flight schedule information for a number of airlines and routes, and to enable customers to search for and book flights. This involves developing:
-- a GUI for viewing flight data and booking a flight
-- extensions to the database to support a flexible search and record locking
-- network server functionality to connect the user with the database
-- data conversion, to prepare the flat text file for use in the database
This is not unlike the sample assignment in RHE, which I will be using for guidance during my SCJD effort.
I will probably handle the data conversion tool first, as it is a relatively small part of the assignment, and provides data that will be useful for unit testing other parts of the application.
Yes, I am open to discussing assignments with you, and strategies/design choices and code. What is your timeline for completing the SCJD? I plan on spending 4-6 months, as I am a full-time IT consultant and father, and I don't have very much spare time.
