Hi,
Sun says:
All elements of your submission must be packaged in a single JAR file.

How should I call this jar file? Should it has the same name as the jar
file containing specification, which I downloaded?
Tx,
Vlad

Hi,
I don't know in your case, but my jar file is named RUNME.JAR. Sun said it in my assignment.
Read your assignment again, the file name is there.

Hi Wilder,
Nope.
Sun says :
All elements of your submission must be packaged in a single JAR file. The JAR file must have the following layout and contents in its root:

- The executable JAR containing the programs. This must be called runme.jar.
- ...
- ...

runme.jar should contain only compiled classes.
but, then all sources, docs, runme.jar and so on MUST be packed in one jar.
My question is how should this jar (containing runme.jar and other files)
be called.
Tx,
Vlad

The name of the overall jar is explained in the certmanager web site.
I think it will be scjda-(prometric id).jar

Hi Tony,
Tx, I have found it under Upload the assignement:
The name of your submission archive file MUST be derived from your Testing ID, as shown above. Your Testing ID is your 9-digit Social Security Number (U.S. only), or it might be another alphanumeric combination, e.g. sp1234567 (any country). Your archive filename MUST BE scjda-AAAAAAAAA.ZZZ, where AAAAAAAAA is your Testing ID, and ZZZ is the appropriate filename extension for your archive type (zip, tar, or jar).


Do I understand it correct:

Sample for non (US-residents):
Correct name:

Incorrect name:


Sorry for stupid questions, just want to make sure...
Tx,
Vlad

Hi Vlad,
I am coming in too late to bring any useful answer ... that anyway I couldn't know yet.
So I'll just tell you that I am happy to see you be ready to upload, that I have full confidence in some high score of you, and ... that I hope that you'll keep around here as a SCJD.
I really enjoyed our discussions and I am looking forward the next ones.
All best,
Phil.

Hi Phil,
tx a lot for your kind words!
in some high score of you

I am sure it will not be the case, because of my locking and documentation.
I decided that my goal is to pass, rather to get high scores (You know my decisions for locking and so on). I am pretty depressed at the moment.
Prometric has confirmed the date of Essay test (Friday), but I have not yet uploaded the assignement. Sun said, it is impossible, since I have to upload assignment first (That is what I plan to do tomorrow). I am afraid now that my Upload will be blocked . I will know it only tomorrow. Well, let's see.
Anyway, I am sure I will be able to help a lot, if I pass.
Best,
Vlad

Hello Vlad,
You will be all-right. I have to write the User Guide and then I am ready to upload my assignment too. It IS a bit of a let-down. Don't let it bother you though.
Best of Luck.
Regards.
Bharat

Hi Vlad,
I am sure it will not be the case, because of my locking and documentation.
I decided that my goal is to pass, rather to get high scores (You know my decisions for locking and so on). I am pretty depressed at the moment.

Yes, I know a few of your decisions. All last ones tend to simplify things which were probably too complex for the scope of this assignment. A I remember that you dealed very well with more complex designs, I am quite confident in the way you simplified them.
Before passing, your main goal - as mine is - was to learn a lot of new things, and get experienced with the various main parts of the Java standard API. Well, this main goal is achieved yet. Reading you, I understand that your secondary goal is to pass. In my mind it's achieved too, because I cannot even imagine you failing. And as far as your ternary goal is concerned - getting a high score - let's say that it's just a personal bet of mine ... and that I hate to loose my bets.
Prometric has confirmed the date of Essay test (Friday), but I have not yet uploaded the assignement. Sun said, it is impossible, since I have to upload assignment first (That is what I plan to do tomorrow). I am afraid now that my Upload will be blocked . I will know it only tomorrow. Well, let's see.

I've read here so much posts about people who uploaded their assignments just the day before the essay (or even after it as Tony recalled). So why should you upload in a hurry ?
I had so much fear. I though I made a big mistake.

I bet it's just fear, no mistake of you. But as you have at least two days before you actually need to upload - what about cooling down, calmly think about it, or even discussing here about those fears ?
It's 2.00 AM now here, I'll go and sleep, but I'll be back early tomorrow morning (Mmh... I mean today ) for any further discussion with you if you want it.
Anyway, I am sure I will be able to help a lot, if I pass.

Of course you will ! (I mean : "will be able to help" and "will pass" )
And I count on you at least till I pass myself ! (don't forget the few beers we promised to drink together on Grand-Place when both of us get passed ).
All best,
Phil.

Hi Vlad,
Sorry I missed your question - I was offline yesterday.
Phil I have full confidence in some high score of you
Vlad I am sure it will not be the case, because of my locking and documentation.
I decided that my goal is to pass

I am also confident that you will get a high score. The code you have posted and your design decisions that you have argued for have been very good.
Vlad Prometric has confirmed the date of Essay test (Friday), but I have not yet uploaded the assignement. Sun said, it is impossible, since I have to upload assignment first (That is what I plan to do tomorrow). I am afraid now that my Upload will be blocked . I will know it only tomorrow. Well, let's see.

Having just mentioned in another thread that people should not deliberately try to upload after doing the exam, here is the other side of the coin...
If you make a genuine effort to upload before your exam, but it is blocked, then it is not your fault, and you should not be penalised for it.
I uploaded two days after my exam because of being blocked, and was not penalised.
Just make sure that you do attempt the upload before the exam, and when it fails, make sure you send an email to the appropriate address before your exam so you do have a paper trail. The address to send the email to (SunCert@prometric.com from memory) will be displayed when you fail to do the upload.
Vlad I had so much fear. I though I made a big mistake.

If it makes it any easier - I also had the same concerns.
Anyway, I am sure I will be able to help a lot, if I pass.

Forget the "if I pass" bit - I am sure you will pass, and you have already been a great help.
And to both Bharat and Vlad: Good luck!
Regards, Andrew

Now that I congratulated you already in this thread, that last step should be just a formality.
Good luck anyway !
