According to my FBN instructions, the following are valid configuration parameters:
  • DNS name of the server
  • Port number used by the server
  • Data file name(s)
  • java.rmi.server.codebase
  • security manager policy file


  • Failure to adhere to these directions will result in automatic failure.
    My question is, do you think it is ok to to use -? as a command line argument to display a program's usage clause? My reasoning is YES, since this is not a configuration parameter. What do you think?

    I don't see any problem with it at all. For my certification, I added RMI's leaseValue parameter and was not penalized at all.

    I did the same thing on mine (a switch for help) and wasn't penalized.
    It's been over a year since I got my SCJD, I had forgotten how stiffly they worded the requiremnts. I got all bugged out at all of the entries that said "will result in automatic failure", so I can't blame you for asking.
