I have to submit today before the exam, here is my jdk version -
java version "1.4.1_02"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1_02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.1_02-b06, mixed mode)
Is it okay? Not a beta one?

Hi Wapdev,
JDK 1.4.1_02 does look like a valid release, and I can see it on Sun's archive downloads page, so you should be OK with that.
The "b" in the Java HotSpot VM refers to the build number - it does not imply that that is a beta version (from the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ question What version of the SDK should I use: 1.3 or 1.4?).
If you are only just about to upload, you may find that you cannot do it first time. See the FAQ question Why can't I upload my assignment?
Regards, Andrew
