I failed today because I used version 1.6 with the cause I should use a non development version of java2....

I spoke to SUN, they offered me a free re-assignment....

This is not true at all, and they are making it seem like they are doing you a favour by letting you resubmit when they are not. When did you submit the assignment? - was java 6 still in beta version? Since the 11th of December 2006 Java 6 is a production version of Java. Perhaps no one has informed the certification department of Sun of this development? :roll:

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a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.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 if your assignment was uploaded after this then you were entitled to use java 6 for the assignment and also Java 5 for another 18 months.

Mark.

I uploaded it last week...
So Java 1.6 was already released.

Java 1.5 isn't able to start the application and I think the automatic tests are not available for jdk 1.6

Hmm.. not sure that that should be our problem I have similar issues myself (see automatic failure thread) but they said that they will have another look at mine. Apparently some people have been passed using 1.6 after initial failures. I don't think it is fair that you (or me perhaps) should have to resubmit in 1.5 just because they have not upgraded their test suite yet, they have had over a month and a half already to do this.
