Hi Along,

There is good news and bad news.

The good news is that you can go to the Integral7 web site, and "publish" your results - this will generate a login id and password so somebody can view your results.

Everything else is bad news...

You may also need to explain to a HR manager that the Integral7 site is Sun's partner (and get them to accept it).

I would suggest that if you are putting this in your resume / cover letter, then you could tell the HR manager that they can confirm the relationship between Sun and Integral7 by going to, click on the link in the sentence "After you have taken a certification exam, log in to CertManager .." which will redirect them to the Integral7 site.

Extremely obscure (and even if they follow it, they cant get access to your published certification results - they will have to modify the URL).

By the way - as far as I know, there is no such thing as an SCJD 1.4 certification. There is an SCJD 1.1 certification, and an SCJD for the Java 2 platform certification.

Regards, Andrew

yes, there is NO SCJD 1.4 therefore claiming you have that will (or should) set off immediate very loud alarm bells and put your entire CV into question.

I agree. Here's the link:
