I am just brain storming now and was wondering what
people thought about starting an open source mock
exam engine which we could then be used for us all
to add open source questions/answers to for all the certs?
I am not sure how we would go about doing this it is just an
idea for now?

No I don't think so that is the my idea to get it started.
The problem is that I am not sure where or how to get this thing rolling.
Here is a beginning view..
We need 3 presentations of the data as I see it..
One to server questions..
One to admin questions...
One to input, format and critize questions..
They wold have to work for any cert questions set which could also be developed via the open source process with people inserting questions and having them commented on before actually being added to the "official exam"
Of course the process for admin and inputting questions would have to moderated somehow as well as the whole development process...?
JSP or applet?
Storage of questions?? XML I thing..
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
