I think this unavailability is very recent, because Evelina was able to download (and purchase I guess) it 3 days ago.
I'll guess they will have it unavailable until the process for downloading, uploading and grading will be defined (now there are a lot of problems with the whole process).
Thanks for the response.
I even checked two days back. The link was showing the same. Just thought of checking with Ranch today.
However i just started preparing for the same.
Can you please give me some mail-ids that I can contact for same. May be I can drop them a mail and wait for the response.
Thanks for the same.
This item is currently unavailable while we update the process. If you previously purchased this assignment, the files will be sent to you via email.
So the only option I guess would be to have a little bit patience. Other options: contact someone at oracle university or sun educational services of your country.
Champion, I just checked the link you provided, and it seems everything's fine. Where does it say it is unavailable?
I just checked the link and it still shows that the registration is currently unavailable. Please find below the details
Exam Number: CX-310-252A
Associated Certifications: Sun Certified Java Developer (SCJD)
Assignment Price: US$ 125
Assignment Registration: This item is currently unavailable while we update the process. If you previously purchased this assignment, the files will be sent to you via email.
They have passed the buck to three other email addresses, so far - one of them is bogus, and the other two haven't answered.
email@example.com - no answer
firstname.lastname@example.org - bogus address
email@example.com - no answer
If you're thinking of purchasing the test, I would advise waiting.
I purchased it through this link here, but now I wish I hadn't:
Cindy Carney wrote:I purchased it based on that success someone encountered earlier in the week, but have not been able to receive the ZIP file containing the data.
Same thing happened to me. You can also try to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
I think he's responsible with the assignment materials. He helped me.
I requested permission (twice) to upload the completed assignment from email@example.com - no response.
I sent e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org at oracle - no response after 5 business days, contrary to what they state.
I've been on hold for more than an hour at 1-800-529-0165, the Oracle "university" help number (listening to stupid, clanky piano music). If I leave a message as suggested, instead of the option of holding, I assume thats another black hole.
Does anyone know if I can expect a response from Oracle, and then hopefully be a useful response?
Has anyone uploaded an assignment purchased the past few months, prior to the buyout of Sun by Oracle?
Thanks for any response or helpful hints.
After the acquisition of Sun by Oracle the SCJD certification is one big mess: unanswered emails, assignments which can't be downloaded or uploaded,... I think on the 1st 2 pages of this forum you'll find more than 5 threads about these problems. Maybe you can find valuable information there. Here is one of these threads.
As an alternative I always advise to try to contact the sun educational services of your country, they may have more powers or knowledge of the internal process for the SCJD.
I hadn't considered what this might mean, when it comes time to turn IN the assignment! I guess I had better start requesting my refund through the Visa merchant guarantee.
If you have URLyBird, and need the zip, I can send it to you.
[Update] Seems I shouldn't do this, so it's better to contact Sun directly. Sorry.
It's sad, that I have to do that - it appears this test will no longer exist in the future. No big surprise, since this test requires hand-grading, as opposed to the others where the computer grades it, for the same amount of money ($300).
It seemed like the funnest test too, darn it! Oh well, cest la vie.
I tried to get some clarification about the whole process, please have a look here.
Is there a quick way to verify I have the right file and the data is valid?
