I think it may have been that I forgot to synchronize my create method in my DataManager class. I may not have provided a good enough solution for multi-threading in RMI. I realized my mistake after submitting. My worker threads do all the searching and booking, and a new thread is spawned for every action of book or search, so it would be impossible to ever tell if a client is trying to lock a record it has already locked or if they are trying to lock a record while holding a lock. That mistake is probably what cost me. But besides that, I am very pleased with my high scores in the other categories.

Oh and for those who are wondering about the choices.txt question. My choices.txt was 7 pages long and I explained in detailed my significant choices. Also, it looks like the assessor liked my GUI layout! I was nervous they might not like it.

Congratulations! I just submitted my assignment yesterday, and I've got to take the exam sometime in the near future (probably won't have the time for another few weeks).
Hopefully, my choices.txt holds up as I was so fed up with the assignment, that I went the short and sweet route and only had 2 1/2 pages of text.

Congratulation. How fast you got your grade. I have waited for 3 and half weeks now after taking the essay. Hope it come soon.

I have no interest in the SCEA until they update it. I'm just doing some freelance work for right now. Maybe I'll get into some EJB or something.

Hi Daniel,

Congratulations! I was sure that you passed. Thanks for your helpful posts while working toward the SCJD.

I submitted mine a week ago and took the test the next day. I hope to be hearing something (hopefully positive) soon.

I noticed you said you don't have any interest in working on the SCJA until they update it. Why is that?

Paula! Good luck with your submission! I'm sure you'll pass! Which test did you have? B&S? URLybird? SCEA costs $500 plus for the three exams and currently it is only for version 1.3. There have been rumors about it getting updated in the near future, so it would be a bummer to learn all the skills needed such as EJB and JSP and take all of it, and then have the tests upgraded. So I'll wait then.

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the encouragement. I had B&S. I think I'll start studying for the architect certification. I have some time now. I hope if it changes it won't be too drastic. I wonder what the new topics for SCEA will be.
