Hi
My question is on theSCJD assignment! How long exactly can one work on the assignment? Is there is a certain time limit, 1 month 2 months, 1 yr?
Will sun penalise u if u dont return ur assignment say maybe after a yr(.. cause u probably have loads of work doing...)! The reason why i am asking is that i want to download the assignment while @ school and work on it as i progress in school.. ! Thank u once again for ur anticipated response..

Currently there is no time limit on the program.

I am not sure wha your major is but I am assuming it computer science. As far as programming difficulty goes I did programs that were much more difficult that this in school. The big differance is this program requires quite a bit of design time because you need to meet the requirements as well as explain why you did what you did. You will probably spend more time designing, testing and documenting than the actual coding.

Best bet is to download the assignment and read this forum as you make design descitions. I also highly recomend that you read some good design patterns and software engineering books as well. Good luck!

There is no time limit on the assignment. But keep this in mind:

You may develop your code using any implementation of the Java 2 platform, but the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.
