Thinking of doing SCJD soon, but have very little swing expertise.
Is the JTable component always included in the exam?
Is the app MDI or SDI?
Is the DB in fact a text file?
Just want a handle on what parts or Swing I should start noodling around with.

I don't know if this is true of all versions of the assignment, but it was true of mine, and seems to be true for other current versions as well:
Use of JTable is explicitly required.
As far as each client is concerned, it's SDI.
The DB is read from a file - it's mostly ASCII text, but some parts are better treated as binary. Think simple fixed-length records.

According to the specification that I got, it said
It(GUI) must present search results in a JTable

It is compulsory to use JTable, otherwise, auto failure.
IMO, SDI is good enough for the assignment.
