After 4 months working and one and a half months waiting, I became SCJD. I am so happy with this result although it is not as high as I expected. All of my efforts and money got paid back.

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 88
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 27
Locking (maximum = 80): 80
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

Thanks to all the Ranchers here, without your generous help, I could not make it or at least would have lost more points.

Special thanks to Andrew Monkhouse, your book rocks!!!

Ranchers, keep going!!!

Cheers

Congratulations!

I'm still trying to understand what can lead to loss of points for GUI. It seems a lot of people have this 27 in GUI. Do you know what could have lead to this?

How are you treating exceptions (if database does not exist, if the server is stopped in the meanwhile)?
Do you have tooltips and mnemonics everywhere?
Do you have a status bar?
Do you have a "clean exit" hook?
Do you have too many or too little classes in you GUI package?
Some other issues?

If exception happens, GUI pops up error box.Server side will not stop.

Do you have tooltips and mnemonics everywhere?

Yes

Do you have a status bar?

Yes

Do you have a "clean exit" hook?

Yes

Do you have too many or too little classes in you GUI package?

No

Well, I meant exceptions like when the database does not exist, or when the server stops and the remote client tries to access it.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
