I have been running a mock Java certification test based on an applet at: http://www.lanw.com/java/javacert/
for several years. I have also been running a servlet based test engine in connection with LANWrights classes for over a year.
Your first decision is: applet or servlet?
Next you need to decide on the way to represent the questions.
We have been using a custom script language, but are converting to XML. Using XML seems to give more flexibility, especially when we want to re-use the questions in different environments.
I am using simple Perl scripts for storing the results of the mock Java exam. The servlets write the results to a simple "flat" file. I don't really see the need for a database unless your question generation or answer recording requirements are complex.
