I have slight idea how the exam goes but everything seems more|less confusing. Now could someone please come forward and briefly explain what this Developer Certification is all about?
Thank you very much!

Hi Antti,
This whole Developer Forum just about the exam. Read the letters
and you will get the knowledge what is it about.
Once, you think you have time and energy to start just
apply for the assignment... You will see it is worthy...
A "beginner" can learn really much from it. Although, I recommend some practice before implementing this assignment.

PS: Also from Finland, but I am Hungarian.

Thx for your reply. I'll try to follow the threads, but yet I have to ask: what is this assignment?
PS: My first name is Andrew in english and gets translated as Andreas in greek - maybe it is Andras in hungarian?)

Hello Antti,

The SCJD exam has two parts. The assignment and the essay exam.
In the assignment part you download an project specification and some starting code. You have to design and implement a client-server application based ont the specification and the code you got. It is your justification whether you use RMI or socket for the client server communication. Other design issues also your decisions as much as you can defend you point of view.
The essay part is after (hopefully) when you uploaded your assignment. There you will get 4 questions about your design and you have to prove that you did it well.

You are right. My name translated to English as Andrew. And now I also know it is Antti in Finnish. So, we are namesakes. God bless you.

Andras

Okie, thx Andras, namesake
Now I have to ask what is this essay - no multiple choices? This maybe hard since my english is not so good
I found some results here whereas the breakdown was:

  • General Considerations(maximum = 58)
  • Documentation(maximum = 20)
  • GUI(maximum = 24)
  • Server(maximum = 53)

  • Now how do these are broken down to assignment/essay?
    And what is the Documentation about? API or actual usage?
    Thank you!

Anras,
I have high expectations for the RMI and in my opinion it should be used instead of raw sockets. Is this true?

Hi Antti,
Yes, I agree in many case you can use RMI instead of sockets. But, be careful, do not crack nuts with a steam hammer! Also, many cases I think RMI is more then enough. Anyhow, this is part of the assignment to get knowledge about adv. and disadv. of RMI and socket.
Chiao,
