I guess many of you might know, yet I havent paid for fees. I know this fee in India cost around 14000/-. Which is very high.
Before paying this fee, I want myself to be well versed with basic groundwork with exam. Also I heard that sun wants project to be developed using jdk1.3 . Are there other changes than previous exams. Also, whatever assignment you get, is it required either to be completed in RMI or sockets ?
So will anybody tell me what should be the warm up ?
Thanx in advance !
Wish you all best luck for their assignments.
from,
Vikram.

Vikram,
Before you can take the developer's test, you have to pass the programmer's test. I believe anyone who passes the programmer's test is in a posiiton to go on and take the developer's test, you just have to be committed to working on the project and doing whatever research you need to do to complete (I'm having to figure out RMI and Swing---i was an awt man). It's really pretty fun. There are a bunch of posts on here that have a link to Sun's sample questions and more info about the test, but again, I think if you've passed the programmer's and are willing to work hard, you can do the developer's (but i haven't passed yet so maybe I'm in for a rude awakening ). A couple of other things:
1.) I think jdk1.3 isn't a production release so it's not to be sued on the assignment...someone correct me if I'm wrong.
2.) You're right I think, all the assignments seem to have RMI or Serialized Objetcs over a Socket.
3.) Other changes...I don't know, except maybe you HAVE to use Swing.

With Respect,
Matt

JDK 1.3 is a full production release and according to Sun, it can be used (as of Sept 2000)
"SUN CERTIFIED DEVELOPER FOR THE JAVA 2 PLATFORM REVISION
Beginning September 1, 2000, candidates who register for the assignment will be able to submit assignments using jdk 1.3 in addition to jdk 1.2. Also on September 1, 2000, Sun will publish the revised 310-027 exam. The revised exam will consist of 5 essay questions that relate to the developer assignment.
The title for certification will remain the same. "
