"Such configuration information must be in a file called suncertify.properties which

Sorry to hear about this delay in you receiving your certification.
Exactly what does your application say when there is no properties file
when the server is attempted to be started with the following
java -jar runme.jar server
Does it inform the user that the properties file is missing, or give
any hint so that the Sun tester could take appropriate action (perhaps
marking off for not starting due to the properties file, but not
failing becauase the server actually does work).
Is it stated in the user's guide that the properties file must be present?
If so, maybe the Sun tester didn't read the user's guide (perhaps all the
user's guides seem pretty similar
Is it stated in the design decisions document that the propertes file
must be present?
Again, anything that the application itself does, or any supporting
documents do to tell Sun that the properties file must be present
is, in my opinion, to your advantage.
Gook luck, and again sorry to hear about this delay in your
Please note that no one ever really fails this exam (as long as they
have $100 to resubmit). So, you may attempt to appeal, and in
the very worst case, you can resubmit and probably pass.
