I downloaded the developer's exam for Java 2 platform about 2 years ago. As far as I know there's no expiration date to take the exam; however, which JDK should I use? JDK 1.2.1 which was out when I got the exam or a newer JDK such as 1.4.1.
or does anyone know who I can contact for this information...

You can get answer by sending e-mail to
In my own experience, you should be able to use JSDK 1.4 to develop your assignment.
Good Luck !!

You can use any version of the JDK which is a release version. I would not recommend you using JDK 1.2.1 because:-
1. It is not longer avaiable for download.
2. It has some important bugs that got fixed in jdk1.2.2 example setMnemonic bug, etc.

A little bit added in jdk1.4
but I am sorry that I forget what added
I am not sure that may be included inside javax.swing such as quit the application
Now we can use
the old method is
new WindowAdapter(){
public void windowClosing(windowEvent e){
Above is a example
I hope that you can notice
