When I was working on my URLyBird project I had done the following:

Planning of the project � architectural plan.
Separating stages into different packages.
Choice of what goes first.
Creating test cases.
Actual coding and development.
Implementing logging system in the project.
Tweaking the test cases.
Refactroring existing code to much more readable and maintainable form.
Continue in above meaner with next stage or package until I was done.

After I was finished I was seeking some body for the quality assurance testing. And I�m still waiting for the report.

Probably the taffetas part is to create parts of the project out of thin air and than worry if they don�t break any requirements. Even thou the project should provide real world experience, you have to accommodate to email where you get (if you ever get) answers only to technical DETAILS not to a design.

Other thing is that I personally have java as hobby (never toke money for doing it ). While working on the project, I read several books concerning: patterns, refactoring, menthologies, logging, project planning and other technical references. I would say that I utilized not even 5% of the information I gathered.

I say that if they would allow j2ee practices the project could be a lot more useful in matter of practice and it would reduce the amount of the candidates to people who really want to be certified and be acknowledged as professionals. I realize that many developers here have used j2ee patterns, but for the person checking your project it�s just a option feature - for witch you are not rewarded.

I believe that if you do something like this certification, it should teach you a discipline not how to get a paper that you are certified as soon as possible.
I know that this is idealistic and the money rules the world, but wouldn�t be it nice?

I have to admit that I have done some random coding because I wanted to see how it�ll work. But I believe that every one does it .

I would appreciate if you (anyone) would post your overall experience from working on the SJCD or comments to my post.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
