I'm currently working on the SCJD programming assignment. So far, I've mainly been working on the user interface. I was hoping to get some feedback from those of you who've earned the certification on how elaborate the user interface needs to be.

For example, is it okay to use a stock JOptionPane dialog to gather user input where you probably would develop a custom dialog if this were a real application.

While I want to do a good job on the assignment and show that I know how to develop a good user interface, I don't want to labor over interface issues that won't count for much in the final score. In other words, how much is enough?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
