I have to thank this forum. You all gave nice and helpful answers and browsing through all the threads really helped me pass the SCJD.

Here are my results:

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 98
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 29
GUI (maximum = 40): 29
Locking (maximum = 80): 44
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

Might the locking score be because I used

, which might not generate a unique cookie?

Can't be, I increment my long cookie by 1 everytime I need a lock cookie, so there can never be a repeated number, but still I get 44/80.

About the 44 in locking, I'll quote Mark Spritzler from The Mysterious 44/80 Locking score:

Here is an anonymous unofficial answer I have received at JavaOne, by someone really really close to the certification and knows about grading.

Basically if you get 44/80 means that the locking does not work in all cases. That there is a scenario that the examiners have run that shows the locking schema that you use does not fully lock in all concurrent scenarios.
