My exam voucher for essay portion is expiring in about 3 1/2 weeks time and have been told I must complete the essay part of the exam by that date, or have to pay for a new voucher (about $500).

I need to e-mail who2contact@sun.com to request upload rights to upload the practical part of the exam, the jar file. Does anyone know how long the rights are kept open for? I am worried about delays in response to my e-mail from Sun so was planning to mail now but will not be ready to upload for another 3 weeks or so. So am just worried if upload rights are only given for a few days or something then taken away. Anyone know about this?

You should not ask for upload rights until you are ready to submit the assignment. When you do ask, the upload rights are ready within 2 days then you submit it within a week. So the whole process from you first contact Sun for upload rights to submit assignment, take essay exam should be at most 2 weeks time.

Now about your voucher expiring, technically if you are ready, you can take the essay exam by that date before you submit your assignment. But of course this is not best practice.

Hi people!
I not knew about this problem to ask permission to do upload.
I send e-mail to sun asking this permission, today. However I schedule my exam test (part 2) for next Tuesday.
So, I'm fear that this permission not coming until Tuesday.

So, I'd like to know: If I take the exam first and submit the upload later, after taken the exam? Some problem if upload after to take the exam?
What do you think guys?

Hi Johnny,

I don't think that's a problem. And I believe they grant upload rights very quickly, so maybe on Monday you will already have your upload rights.

I submitted my assignment less than an hour before I took the essay exam. But should it be after taking the essay exam, I don't think that would be a problem, because my assignment was finished. I think it's a different story if there is a gap of 3-4 weeks between taking essay exam and submitting, certainly if your assignment isn't finished yet. You can't make changes, because on the essay exam you wrote down you used RMI for example and now you want to use sockets. So you can't make that change.

Kind regards,
Roel
