Hi, I'm trying to upload my jar file, and, like everyone else, it seems, I don't have access. I've sent an e-mail to the adress mentionned on the web site. Do any of you know if they will unlock it in the weekend or I will have to wait until monday?

Thank you very much! I'm quite nervous right now, I'm passing the essay exam tomorow at 10h45...

Do you know if the essay exam asks for really technical questions about (for example) RMI or the mvc patern...? Because I don't know much about RMI, I found an example on sun's web site and applyed the concept on my project, other than that, I don't have much technical knowledge about RMI. This, and other things like that are making me nervous!

Damn! I shouldn't panic like that... I've also read The sun certified java developer exam book... It has very good explanations on RMI and sockets... And, this is exactly one of the main advantages of RMI... You don't have to know its inner workings to use it. You only have to know how to use it. And I know how to use it, it is quite simple. The example from the book was also easy to understand. Anyway... we will see tomorow, I just wish I will be able to sleep tonight!

The exam is very easy, I think.

I think a couple of general technical questions like RMI vs Sockets, MVC or design patterns used and a couple on your design choices basically(why you did like that, pros and cons).

Are you sure that they are gonna ask questions about design patterns, because I used the MVC pattern, but I don't specify it in my choices document, at least, not directly... I say that I have a controller that makes the bridge between the user window and the backend of the application and that when a user does an operation that returns data, a TableModel is returned (which is the format used by the JTable, but I don't mention the words MVC... I hope it will do.

Also, I use a kind of adapter. It allows the application programmer to call the business methods on the adapter instead of calling operations directly on the Data objet. In fact, the DataAdapter encapsulates the Data object. I hope
it is an Adapter pattern, because it takes an interface and transforms it in another interface, but it could also be a facade... if you concider that the Data class is a complex subsystem... I did not specify that I use the Adapter pattern in the choices documents, in fact, I don't talk about patterns at all.

What do you think?

To be very frank, I do not remember questions I got.
The reason why I specified design patterns is I am not familiar with them and prepared seriously. And if my memory server right, I think I got a question on types of design patterns used in design. I am not 100% sure.

I studied my design choices a couple of times and read about all design patterns(around 5 I think) from GoF book.

Also a search on "essay exam" here returns some threads. I made sure that I read all the threads regarding "essay exam questions" once. It should'nt take more than 1~2 hrs. That is pretty much it. A preparation time of 4hrs is good. And if its one day its cool.

I specified all patterns I used in design choices and so I was a bit nervous for essay exam in that topic.


Just make sure you read all threads on essay exam in this thread, which can be done in an hour or so.

Good Luck

Note: All questions I got are from questions discussed in essay exam threads here.

Hi, I've done the essay exam... It was wat I expected. Except for 1 question for which they asked me to say what I did in a certain situation and what are the advantages and disadvantages of my choice. The fact is: I've done that because this is how I learned it and I don't know any other way of doing it. I managed to write some advantages and disadvantages... but not much, at least, compared to the other questions. I hope it will be enough.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone who helped me with this certification in the last several month... This is a great place where a lot of knowledge (and wisdom) can be found.

Now, I will wait for my result. For that I have a question, where do they display the result? This one:
http://www.certmanager.net/sun
or this one, the place where we download/upload the assignment.
http://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment/

I can't logon to the first one, but the second one works. They say that my prometric testing ID exists, but wrong password. I tought that both websites had the same users/passowrds.

Note: At the second link, where you upload/download, they also show the results of my SCJP exam.

Hi Yanick - I did the exam today as well, 18 months after downloading the assignment (had it almost finished last March, then got distracted... restarted 3 weeks ago). Now fingers crossed for the result
