Hi kandarp,
In Max Habibi's book, there is better that a sample assignment : a full sample commented in details by the author. I actually recommend you to buy it.
Best,
Phil.

Hi Andrew,
I see that the book Billy is talking about is written by Alain Trottier. This author also has written a book preparing for SCWCD and I have it (not read yet), along with two other books on the subject (one written by Hanumant Deshmukh and the other by Sam Dalton). Since I bought them, I read somewhere (I think it was on the cert results forum) many critiques on Alain Trottier's SCWCD book. If his book on SCJD is the same level, Max's one should still be the best buy. But it's just a guess.
Best,
Phil.

Thanks Billy, Andrew & Philippe
I inquired at local book store. I think, these books are not available in Indian Market. Now questions are,
Q1 - Where I found online resource for Sample Project & preparation guide?
Q2 - Is it downloadable?
Q3 - Which Web Server I have to use?
Q4 - Which Database Server I have to use?
Q5 - Which Opearating System I have to use?
Thanks
Kandarp

Hi Kandarp
You can order Max's book directly through Amazon.
I don't know of any downloadable sample assignments.
One thing you might want to consider, though, is that there is no time limit on doing the real assignment. So you could purchase the assignment (don't purchase the exam that goes with it though) from Sun, and just start working on the real assignment.
Regards, Andrew

[Andrew: removed link] is a companion code of Java 2 Developer Exam Cram 2 (Exam CX-310-252a and CX-310-027)
There are every chapter's code and a sample_app in the code.

Hi Andrew,
in the USA that may be right, in general that is wrong.
In some other countries (for example in Germany, see the URL and the cite below) one can only purchase (and pay) the programming assignment together with the essay exam. The voucher for the essay exam expires after one year. So, if you don't want to lose money, you have in fact less than one year for the assignment.
See http://de.sun.com/Schulung/cgi-bin/Zertifizierungen/voucher_agb.pl

(Assignment und Exam 310-027 nur zusammen bestellbar)

Hi Werner
Thanks for letting me know. I had heard rumors that some Sun offices were forcing people to purchase both together, but until now I had not had a concrete example.
Here in Australia they can be purchased seperately. Until very recently the vouchers here had a 3 month expiry date on them!
Regards, Andrew
