Have any of you gotten a gridbaglayout question on the exam? Do you think there would be a good chance that it will be on the exam? Can someone tell me what are the key things to know about GridBagLayout?

I have heard that yes, some people do get the question. It is one of the objectives so you should know how it works. Basically, know how to create one, how to add items to it, how to use the gridbag constraints objects, and some of the options use to layout components, like weight, and how resizing affects a layout depending on your settings, etc.

Hehe thanks victor. But somehow I think I should actually get my SCJP first before they can make me a bartender in the Programmer Certification Study, don't you think??

Yes, I had a question regarding the GridBagLayout on my exam, which I took January 24, 2002...

Not necessarily. Some people moderated this forum while they were studying for the exam.

Could someone direct me to a webpage which goes into this level of detail of the objectives? (such as which specific layout managers are required) I went to this link on the Javaranch FAQ, but it does a redirect-
http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/progobj.html
I found this PDF, but it says nothing about which specific layout managers-

I have the first edition of RHE and it says on pg 284 that the Cert exam only requires Flow, Grid, & Border. Yes, I realize there's now a second edition out now. Does it now specify GridBagLayout for the Cert exam?

Thanks. This page explains it-

1/4 of the way down-
"(note: the first editions of the Roberts, Heller and Ernest book on certification say you do not need to know about the GridBagLayout, but this has been corrected in the online errata, see my FAQ)"
