I finally got my results! Took something like 8 weeks. After six weeks I contacted them and it turned out when I registered for the written I ended up with a new ID, so my app and my written were never associated together in their system.
Anyway the breakdown was like this:
General Considerations: Maximum=58 Deductions=5 Actual=53
Documentation: Maximum=20 Deductions=0 Actual=20
GUI: Maximum=24 Deductions=0 Actual=24
Server: Maximum=53 Deductions=0 Actual=53
Total: Maximum=155 Deductions=5 Certification Score=150
I have to admit that I finally had to quit reading the SCJD forum here - I kept seeing things there that made me think I needed to change my code. Finally decided I had to quit reading or I'd never have it finished.
I probably took longer to complete this than anyone else ever! I originally registered right after I passed SCJP 1.1 in 1998! But I got caught up in job changes, the "dot-bomb", etc. and only recently managed to get back to it. Glad it didn't expire!
Probably going for SCWCD next - it's most applicable to my current work.

Hi Eddie,
Congratulations on finally completing and passing.
Had to laugh at your comment "I have to admit that I finally had to quit reading the SCJD forum here - I kept seeing things there that made me think I needed to change my code. "
I also felt like that, and although I didnt cut out JavaRanch totally, I did severly limit the hours I was spending here.
Regards, Andrew

I submitted and took the essay exam yestarday, originally I could not upload because the site said I dont have the permission and I had to email Sun Educational services to get it fixed
then I uploaded my file and went to take the exam, but now I get the feeling that I screwed up somewhere in my documentation and my coding especially with thread safety and lock/unlock after reading so many posts.............and I might fail,
if fail there is no need to do the essay exam again is that right?
just resubmit the original assignment?
I hope I dont have to wait very very long for my result like some ppl did because I really hate waiting.
