Hi, I am just about to download the SCJD project. I haven't too much experience of Java other than sitting the SCJP 1.4 ( passed with 90%), though I have experience of C++. How long will it take me to complete the project, considering I'm not working at the moment and have time to spend. I would also appreciate any other tips for starting the project ? Additionally should I use an IDE( I have netbeans ) or not ?
How long will it take me to complete the project, considering I'm not working at the moment and have time to spend. This depends on how much knowledge and experience you have with design patterns, Swing, RMI, and multi-threading. If you don't have it, I would say it would take you 2 months full time, including the time to research and study. Additionally should I use an IDE( I have netbeans ) or not ? You are free to use whatver IDE you want, but your code should not have any dependencies to any particular IDE or any third party tools. This is stated explicitely in the requirements. Eugene.
