What sort of questions are on the essay part of the developer exam? There is no information on it that I could find and prepare for?
Have you taken this essay exam?

A good preparation for the exam would be to review your design, the major design decisions, and your documentation. The exam seems to be primarily a way to verify that you actually wrote the software you submitted rather than copying it off someone else. As long as you haven't cheated, you have no reason to worry.

Hi Ahoo,
the questions are not of the SCJP type. The answers are comments on your application or code. Such as "please describe this or that".
I had five questions altogether, and I had 90 minutes to write my answer, which was plenty of time. You are not requested to comment all of your app, but only selected aspects.
So no need to worry!
Good luck!
