Does SCJP for Java 2 Platform 1.4 require Swing?

Hi,
I checked http://suned.sun.com/US/catalog/courses/CX-310-035.html and found Swing (such as JTables, etc) is not required for SCJP 1.4. But some reference book or mock exams include such content. Could someone let me know if I need to review the Swing part for the exam? Thank you for your help.

Swing is not included in the Exam Objectives for CX-310-035.

Questions related to GUI (AWT and Swing), as well as I/O are not examined in the test. So, you can feel free to skip those chapters.
Usually, these chapters are available for preparing SCJD, as SCJD covers these 2 topics.

That doesn't mean the classes can't appear in the exam, but you will not be tested on their correct usage (except insofar as you are required to know whether the code will compile for example).
So you may have a piece of code in front of you creating an instance of a Swing object.
That piece of code may test any of the exam objectives but it won't ask you to know what Swing does with it.
For example, a question on garbage collection may create several JButton objects and ask you how many objects are being made elligible for garbage collection in that piece of code.
It won't demand you to know whether the text on that button will appear in which font and color.
 
Power corrupts. Absolute power xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is kinda neat.
