Hi Everyone,
I originally signed up for the Java 2 Dev cert in February of 2000, but I really didn't have time to work on it until the last few months. Plus it was hard to find the motivation to spend time working on the project rather than learning other new things since I have been coding Java professionally for over 5 years. I stumbled across this forum when I was about 90% finished and the discussions really helped me stop worrying about whether I was taking the "RIGHT" approach in certain areas. Thank you everyone. Here is my score breakdown:
General Considerations(maximum = 58): 54
Documentation(maximum = 20): 15
GUI(maximum = 24): 20
Server(maximum = 53): 51

Ashley,
Do you have any hints to what worked for you, or what didn't? Did they give you any feedback at all?

They don't give you any insight as to their rationale in awarding points for various parts of the project--just your point totals for each area. If you are interested in hearing more about implementation approaches to various parts of the project I suggest you read through some of the problem-specific threads. You will get a far better understanding of the various approaches than I can give you in a quick overview here, and there was certainly nothing novel about my approach (nor is that expected).
