Well I just ran into problem because Sun (Netherlands) told me that I only needed to submit the assignment and have to reserve for an exam before the voucher expires. This is NOT correct, this is very old info!
Prometric told me to submit AND do the test before the voucher exipers. They also told me that if you fail you can bye a new voucher and simply do the test again with the same/identical assignemt.
Do others think this info is correct? Anyways, if in doubt, please call you local testing organisation and/or Sun.

There is no time limit for the assingment.
Please refer to the post
Once downloaded ..within how many days ....
For the Essay part, after you upload your assingment, you can take it. It is hold in the prometric exam centers. You need to answer 4 Qs within 1.5 hr.

Michel,
The only time constraint is that the java version you are using to write your code is not superceded by another version of java for more than 18 months. Meaning if you are using 1.4 currently and 1.5 came out tomorrow you would have 18 months from tomorrow to complete your assignment. Does this make sense?

Pander (and others),
You should also be aware that after you have booked your exam with Prometric, you are allowed to postpone the exam (up to 12 months past the initial date I believe), even if you are postponing it till after the voucher expires.
Regards, Andrew

Dave,
You are correct about the version of the JDK. However there is nothing to stop you changing your version of the JDK mid way through the assignment - you just have to test to ensure that your code still works with the newer version.
Regards, Andrew
