Hi Yogesh,

There is no time limit on the assignment itself.

You can still use JDK 1.4 until 18 months after JDK 5 was released - so up until March 29, 2006. After this date you must test that your code compiles and runs on JDK 5 before you submit it.

Once JDK 6 is released the same rules will apply to - you will have 18 months where you can ignore JDK 6 if you want to, after which you will have to prove that your code works with JDK 6. And so on with the future releases.

Having said that, the SCJD assignment provides a good opportunity to explore JDK 5 and it's new features. Why not start playing around with it now?

Regards, Andrew

Hi folks.

I'm trying to package for submission too and hit the same problem. Has anyone tried/heard of anyone trying submitting a single JAR with nested JARs (which is explicitly allowed in the instructions for FBNS) and instructing the examiner to issue "jar -xvf ." prior to running the application? That way you could have separate client and server executable JARs.


Cheers,

Steve
