I just found out that I passed my SCJD exam! Yahoo!!! I did the exam on September 3rd, but submitted the jar already on August 1st to have a nice vacation in between .

Here are my scores:
General Con: 100 92
Documentation: 70 65
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 28
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 40
Network Server: 40 40
Total: 400 375

I'm not sure why my GUI lost so many points. It could have been the minimal functionality (no menubar, big JTable with "Book", "View all" and "Exit" on the bottom). Still, passing == passing.

For those curious about my locking... I didn't use any of the newer Java 5.0 lock features, but used the wait/notify instead. My Data class has a Map storing LockHandle objects that are used to trigger the wait/notify system.

A big thanks to all of you on the forum for helping. Another special thanks to Monkhouse and Camerlengo for their book, which I used mostly to pass the exam.

Hi

Congratulations!

I have a question, how big is your Choices.txt? did you only put what are your design decisions including the options that you chose?

Thanks!

My choices.txt wasn't really big, about 58 lines in total. It could be this document that cost me 5 points. It actually only contained some of the dillema's I had during development, like the DuplicateException and the choice between RMI/sockets.
