Hi,

In October 2003, I registered for the SCJD and I was assigned to develop B&S (2.2.2)
Since then, I haven't been able to start the project.
I just wonder if I can go on with this project, or do I have to register again for the exam?

Thanks for any help.

You can just continue on your assignment.

I think the problem is due to the fact that the exam voucher has expired because it is valid for only one year. I have the same problem. I think we will have to buy a new voucher for that part. Why did I buy the voucher? Because Sun Swizzleland insists on it to be able to get the assignment voucher

Is that also your problem?

Frans, Barry thanks for your replies,

I can't remember if I was given a voucher when I purchased for the SCJD assignment. (I remember getting one for SCJP)
I looked at certmanager.net and I still have access to the download/ upload area for the assignment exam.
Anyway, I am going to check whether I recieved a voucher or not.

Thanks.

Hi
I received my assignment a week ago and there was no voucher included. I belive you need a voucher when you are done with your assignment (for the next step).

Yes, you need two vouchers. The first is to download the assignment and the second is to take the short examination after you have uploaded your assignment. In some countries you can (or must) buy them separately. In others, in my case Switzerland, you must buy them together. The problem is the examination voucher expires after one year (or less). So, if you bought only one voucher to get the assignment you are lucky. You only have to buy your examination voucher when you are ready and have uploaded your assignment. You do not get any vouchers when you download the assignent.

Ordered the assignment today, got an email from Sun that it would be emailed to me from the US later (timezones ). They also wanted my candidate ID (which isn't on the purchase form).
So I guess I won't be getting a voucher but rather a direct dowload link?

I didn't get a voucher for the assignment; only an e-mail pointing me to the download location.
When you order the follow-up exam you will receive a voucher though.

Frans.

That's nothing Panos, in March 2003 I downloaded the assignment, worked for a month flat out, more hours than I thought I needed, tested, had others test it, retested, and I still haven't submitted it yet.

I did book my exam for next week though, and I've requested permission to upload, so I'm making progress here

Did Sun change the time limit on this? I thought it was 18 months?

Hi Robert,

The 18 months you are thinking about probably comes from the following instruction:
From my instructions:
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
So: there is no time limit on how long it takes you to complete your assignment, but if you are working on it now, you must be using either JDK 1.4 or 5.

Regards, Andrew
