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 who2contact@central.sun.com.
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
