Guys,
Is there a naming convention for the Final Jar to be uploaded.

Hi Akshay
Yes - when you go to upload your jar file you will be given explicit instructions.
For my submission I was told to name my file scjda-<prometric-id>.jar, so mine ended up named something similar to scjda-sp123456.jar.

Hi HaoZhe,
The "runme.jar" file normally exists inside the jar file you will submit to Sun. It is this second jar file - the one that you send to Sun - that we are talking about in this thread.
Take a look in your instructions under the heading "Packaging of Submissions". You should have text similar to:

All elements of your submission must be packaged in a single JAR file. The JAR file must have the following layout and contents in its root:
  • The executable JAR containing the programs. This must be called runme.jar.
  • ...


  • See how the "runme.jar" file is inside the submission jar?

    Hi Damu,
    This might have changed since I uploaded (though I doubt it).
    You get this information when you click on the "upload" button on the website - you then get told what the name of the uploaded jar file must be.
    You do not get this information until you are in the middle of going through their wizard to do the upload.
    If this has changed, please let us know.
    Regards, Andrew
