So I've finally submitted my assignment and am all set to take the exam on Monday. The problem is that I'm not sure what kind of things I should be revising. I know that you guys can't give me examples of questions but it'd be nice to understand the types of things they could ask me about.
I know my project pretty well so I don't want to fall into the trap of being too complacent before the exam only to get stung by some questions I wasn't expected!
Howdy Chris, nice to hear you are done. For the essay exam you get 4 questions. The questions are pretty obvious given the requirements of the assignment. To prepare for the exam, know your choices.txt file inside out. Given the topics of the requirements you should expect:
* RMI vs sockets what did you use why advantages & disadvantages did you create stubs
* locking mechanism how does it work for your assignment
* searching how do you implement searching
* did you use any design patterns * did you use 2-tier or 3-tier architecture (even the instructions just say "client/server architecture")
* what layout managers you use for the GUI
* how does the JTable get its data, what table model did you use
As you can see you should able to think of so many questions in each of the big topics. Best of luck.

OK, so here's what I've been swatting up on this morning...
- RMI vs Sockets design choice and implementation
- Design patterns used
- Architecture (multi-tier choice vs client-server)
- JTable data and implementation
- Layout manager implementation
- Exception handling logic
- Event handling logic
- Search implementation
- Locking mechanism
If you have made your project by yourself there will be no question you won't be able to answer. Just make sure you are able to answer with as much as specific details of your application as possible (class names, methods, data members,...). So you proof you developed it on your own and you'll do just fine.
And I think everybody gets the same 2 questions: if you think about the main topics and main choices you have to make, you should be able to know what these 2 questions are and then 2 random questions.
Regarding the RMI vs sockets design choice, you should also be able to list some advantages and disadvantages of the choice you made.
I sent an email to the who2contact address to tell them i submitted and I took the essay exam, and ask if they received everything well. I don't know if it speeded up the grading, but I had my result exactly 4 weeks after submitting.
And don't forget to bookmark the https://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment/. Normally your result will appear here first.
Now it is time to go on holiday (like me) for 2-3 weeks, that will be more fun than just waiting for that score
And i was glad I could help you. And when you are a SCJD, we will have a
