Hi,
Just thought, would share the good news with u all. After a long wait for my results, I received it today morning. Passed the sun developer certification exam for the java 2 platform with a score of 147/155.
The details of the report received are as follows:-
Test: Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform (310-027)
Date Taken: 2002-03-03 15:04:00.090
Grade: P
Score: 147
Comment: This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual number of points you were awarded. This is
provided to give you per-section feedback on your strengths. The maximum possible # of points is 155; the minimum to pass is 124. General Considerations(maximum = 58): 56 Documentation(maximum = 20): 18 GUI(maximum = 24): 22 Server(max imum = 53): 51
I used RMI and a lock manager. The interface was kept simple. Took about 3 months to complete it. Now thinking about going for the architect one. Any links and information will be helpful.

Hi,
I didn't changed the signature of the lock and unlock methods. The Data class was assumed to provide the functionality of a local database server and thus it was assument that in the non-networked mode, there was only one client.
The networked mode used a lockmananager which used to lock and unlock the records. Here the locking was done based on an id. I used to create a separate handler for each client and did assigned them unique ids.
hope that helps.
regards

Congrats Garry. Since you are one of the few people to not get perfect in the documentation. don't worry you still have a great score. But to help others out, tell us why you think you got 18/20 What did you include and what didn't you include?

hi Mark,
as far as i remember, i was expecting a score of 150+, but i guess there are things about which i am confused. I don't think my documentation, deserved to loose 2 points, because i had a very detailed documentation and had explained each and every thing related to the design in terms of UML diagrams in addition to the required things like rmi vs sockets and extending vs modifying.
The manuals for the client and the server were very detailed and i used images to show what would happen at each stage.
The gui was great and there as well, i lost 2 points. I always beleived i had the strongest server, because i had taken care of 90% of the stuff. Small things like locking all records before shutting down the server were taken care of.
Anyway, i am happy that i passed. I would like to know about the architect certification.

Huh, that sounds good to me.
Maybe the assessor was a Basketball player, and wanted 2 points for each shot.
