What is the deadline if I'm using Java 1.4 for my SCJD assignment?

I know that Sun's policy on SCJD submission is that the assignment must be developed under a production version that has not been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months. Does this means that, if I'm using Java 1.4 to develop my SCJD assignment, I must submit my assignment within the next 18 months? Does anyone has the exact deadline on when I must submit my Java 1.4 submission for SCJD?

J2SE 1.4.2 is still listed as a current version. I couldn't find a retirement date scheduled for it, so maybe the date hasn't been set yet. So you still have at least 18 months to use 1.4.

See J2SE Download site.

Maybe you should just rewrite some parts of your assignment and recompile with JDK 1.5_1. There is very thin (178 pages) and excellent book �Java 1.5 Tiger - A developers Notebook� by Brett McLaughlin and David Flanagan. You don�t even have to read the whole book and you should be able to get on with 1.5. It took me around 2 hours to rewrite my assignment with was done at 60% at that time.

SCJP 1.4 - 83%, SCJD 360-90%,

I don't think we should use jdk 1.5 as this is not a production version yet.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
