How many java source file? How many lines of java code?

I realize that the number of source files and the lines of java code could vary quite dramatically between two different completed developer projects.
However, I still wanted to get a feel for this.
Question 01:
Approximately, how many java source files are in a completed project?
Question 02:
Approximately, how many total lines of java code are a completed project (yes - include Sun's provided code in the total count.)
I decided to spend some time on my developer certification, after taking a break of several months.
thanks!

I had 31 source files and approximately 5300 lines of code.

thanks for your response. Did you pass, or are you still coding?
I am curious for those people on this board who submitted and passed the developer certification, how much java code they ended up with?
5000 lines of java code?
1000 lines of java code?
thanks!

20 files and about 2300 lines of code - this estimate includes comments. Without comments, I'm guessing it's about 1800...not sure though.

23 Files
2329 Lines of code, but 550 of those lines are from the code that Sun supplied in Data and their other classes.
