This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
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Sun's policy on SCJD submission is that the assignment must be developed under a production version that has not been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months.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?
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.
