My exam states that I should use a production java 2 platform and not a developement platform. Where can I find out if the version I'm using is production or not? And also how can I find out how long it has been in production?

Hi Ronnie,
Any post 1.2 non-beta version is what they mean. You probably should use one of the 1.3's.
Hope this helps,
Michael Morris

Michael,
I am taking the beta exam for 1.4 and I'm going to assume that 1.4.1 is a production platform.

Hi Ronnie,
I think 1.4.1 is a release candidate. I don't think that would be considered a production copy. You may want to stick with 1.4.0.

Thanks Micheal,
I will use 1.4.0.
I think 1.4.1 is a release candidate

But if I wanted to find out wether 1.4.1 is definately a release candidate, where would this information be documented?

Hi Ronnie,
I looked on the Java !.4 page:
JAVA SDK 1.4
but didn't see anything there.
You could send the question to:
who2contact@central.sun.com.
They are pretty good to get back with you on questions.

Ho Ronnie,
as an FYI, using 1.4(for either SCJD 1.2/1.4) is perfectly acceptable, per my contacts at the Sun. However, I suggest that you verify this for yourself.

Definitely verify for yourself... they (miss green) absolutely told me not to use 1.4 only a few short weeks ago...

Hi all,
Sorry I have not been around as much as I would have liked... I have been quite busy taking a great design patterns course, teaching a java class and still working in the real world as I always have (and being married which take a little time)... I will try to get back to helping out whenever I have a free minute like now...
Best to all...

Nate,
Then we're getting conflicting messages: I spoke with her, and Lisa, and they both told me that it's perfectly acceptable. But yes, by all means, please verify for yourself by emailing.

Are you guys taking the beta exam? This may be the reason for the conflict.

Hi Ronnie,
No, I mean the orthodox version. I used it for my own test.
