Hi people!

After 10 work days submitted my project, yesterday at 2009-11-08 18:06:47, I receive my report. I'm very happy has been passed in this certification! I'd like to thank you for your kind attention to answer my doubts directly by topics or by private messages. Thank you all, for your topics and posts in this site, in special, Roel De Nijs, Andriy Tsykholyas, Liviu Carausu, sohrab khan e Matheus Mendes that answered kindly my private messages about your experiences.
I read the Andrew Monkhouse's book (not all, but only some important chapters) which allow us got some ideas for start the development. Thanks Andrew for your book!

I was afraid, because, I submitted (upload) my project some days after I did my assay exam, because delay to send email for Sun to permit and authorize me to upload the final file. However, as Roel said to me, this fact no matter, if all thing was done in one or two weeks. That is correct! To do the upload before or after to assay exam no matter absolutely! The other thing that I was fearful is about my assay exam, because my poor English, as you can to see in this post. I thought that I had written either not much in each question and not much elucidated, but...

My project was Bodgitt and Scarper version 2.3.1, I used RMI for server, 4 layers (view, application, domain and data access), MVC, Observer/Observable pattern, wait/notifyAll to lock and some other patterns like Domain Model, Value Object, Repository, Facade and factory.

Below follow the report found in site: https://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment. I believe, in the next days, should to appear also in site https://www.certmanager.net/sun, because, today, not appeared yet.

SUN REPORT:

This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section, and the actual number of points you were awarded. This is provided to give you per-section feedback on your strengths. The maximum possible score is 400; the minimum to pass is 320.

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 100
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30

GUI (maximum = 40): 31
Locking (maximum = 80): 80
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40



I suspect I lost points on the GUI because I did a lot of things that wasn't necessary. I did many Menu, Menu Item, Tool Bar, Pop ups (right click) in table with some menu item that were in either Menu and Tool Bar, Menu Item disabled (new e delete record), Menu Item unnecessary like: About, Help (online and html) and some others things was done and were cut off in last hours before submit the project, at last, I conclude that I did a lot of functions in my GUI that was totally unnecessary. The other point in my GUI that I think was unnecessary is about the Observer/Observable pattern. In my server view for example, I developed a updating of information about logs coming to server unnecessarily. I should cut off this thing too! I not heard the ranchers that said: keep you GUI as simple as possible that is, do only the necessary to conform the specification!!!.

The important is, this certification is thing of the my past!
Now, let's go to SCBCD.

PS1: THANK YOU VERY MUCH ALL RANCHER'S. YOUR TOPICS HELP A LOT OF PEOPLE HERE!!
PS2: I'm going to try be more active in this forum to help other people too, but, if you have any doubt about SCJD, not hesitate to send me a MP.

Hi Johnny,

Great score! Congratulations

What makes the difference between a perfect score on the gui-section and a 31/40 score like yours will always be a mistery i guess.

Kind regards,
Roel
