Hi all,

Hows it going...??

I have noticed that today JDK 1.5 has been fully released as a production release. I was wondering weather or not to start to use it to develop my SCJD. Would it be ok to change the Java version I have been using?

I could even start to use JDK 1.5's various new features such as generics and annotations (among others) within my project, which could be quite cool as it would serve as a good way to learn the new features.

I think this should be ok as JDK 1.5 is now a production release, any thoughts on this? Anyone else who will use 1.5?

Thanx for your comments.

James.

I suggest that you not do so. Sun likes to have uniform objectives by which to grade solutions, and they aren't prepared to grade submissions with jdk 1.5 features.

So do we have time limitation on finishing the project obtained before the release of this version?

If you wish to use J2SE 1.4 for SCJD, you have 18 months to finsih it.

But if I were you, I would suspend the assignment, wait for the new scoring scheme for J2SE 1.5, and then continue SCJD.
