Hi,

and what is required to make a proof that you've finished the assignment prior to the 1st of October deadline?
Thank you. I'm cooler now
Can you tell us where did you manage to find the phone numbers to call in order to solve your problem? I mean, I'm sure you were forwarded from one operator to another to another to another until you reached someone who could solve your problem.
Thanks for your answers,

I knew that I needed to submit the assignment prior to registering for the essay. But look at the error message I got: Oracle Certification Program policy requires that a 1Z0-855 or 1Z0-844 exam be graded before registration for exam 1Z0-856 is allowed.

graded??? Can it be just a misuse of terms or maybe something changed with the registration policy for the essay? I really need to register for the essay this week to avoid that expensive course.

Thanks,
Calin
Hi,

I'm currently almost complete with the assignment so I tried to register on Pearson Vue for the second step, which is the 1Z0-856 exam. I get this message when I try to complete the payment: Oracle Certification Program policy requires that a 1Z0-855 or 1Z0-844 exam be graded before registration for exam 1Z0-856 is allowed. It's true that I haven't uploaded a solution for the assignment yet, but the message somehow scares me.

Please tell me what does this mean? Do I only have to submit the 1Z0-855 assignment and then the payment for the 1Z0-856 will be unlocked? The reason I'm asking is because I planned to take both 1Z0-855 and 1Z0-856 before the 1st of October to avoid the expensive courses that become mandatory (I have 15 years Java experience so I really want to avoid those courses). From what I understood from friends of mine that took this certification, very soon after you submit the assignment, you can register for the essay.
Hello,

I started this topic because my wife is in the same situation. Both she and I registered for the OCMJD. I got Bodgitt and Scarper, she got URLyBird. My assignment is valid, while hers is not. She received the assignment as an instructions-111.jar file. Inside this jar, there are:
- META-INF
- db-1x1.db
- instructions.html

Her .db file is corrupt, she gets all kinds of curious values when she reads it. After some investigation, she discovered that the .db file is in fact a disguised zip/jar file. If she renamed the db-1x1.db file to db-1x1.zip, it became a valid zip file that contains META-INF and instructions.html once again. There is obviously something wrong here. The questions is what to do. If she downloads the assignment again, the same corrupt file would come down, and the instructions.html file contains who2contact@sun.com at the end as the address to write to in case problems appear, but this address must obviously be obsolete now, since Sun is not in charge of Java certifications anymore, right?
