Hi Monu,
Could you please post the exact statement from your instructions regarding JDK 1.2?
Is this an assignment you have had for a few years?
You can find a few recommended books and links to tutorials on the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ page. The best book I know of for the SCJD is The Sun Certified Java Developer Exam with J2SE 1.4 by Max Habibi who is a frequent poster and sometimes bartender here in this forum.
Regards, Andrew

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for ur response. I got this voucher of SCJD for java 1.2 during January this year.
So according to that can i use the new features of jdk1.4 to complete my examination or i have to use jdk1.2 only.
Does this also means that whatever .jar, .class u generate it shud work fine with the JRE/JVM for version 1.2?

Hi Monu,
Without seeing the wording in question it is hard to be certain. Are you certain it wasn't talking about SCJD for the Java 2 platform?
When you downloaded the assignment, there are only two SCJD assignments: one for Java 1.1 and one for Java 2.
My voucher did not specify a version of the JDK to use.
Some time back (shortly after JDK 1.4.0 was released) some candidates did ask if they could use JDK 1.4.0 with the Fly By Night Services assignment. The response can be found in the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ under the question What version of the SDK should I use: 1.3 or 1.4?
Regards, Andrew

Hi Andrew,
Thanks, ur links helped me a lot. Infact i forgot my password and asked the CertManager to provide me.
The one i downloaded at that time said SCJD for java1.2(or 2). So it's clear that i can use any good production release of jdk which is after 1.2.
