Hello,

How many time I have to submit my project after downloading the assignment?
What�s the average time to finish the project (code and documentation)? In my case I have few hours a day (4hs) during the week and weekends.

Hi Rodrigo,

Have you taken a look at the JavaRanch Reading Materials FAQ and the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ?

What�s the documents I need to upload with my project? Should I use class diagram, use case diagram, just planning text format or HTML file?
The documents that you must upload are described in the instructions you receive. They can vary from assignment to assignment, so the only absolute list is the one in your instructions.

Class diagrams and use case diagrams are not mentioned in any of the assignments I have seen so far. Some candidates (myself included) submit them, but that is just personal choice. I suspect that most candidates don't bother.

which books you recomend for SCJD?
Mine of course . But I think more impartial comments might come from other forum members.

Can I use java.nio in my project ou just java.io for persistence?
The definitive answer to that comes from the instructions you download. According to the Sun website, you are not allowed to use NIO, however Sun have told those who enquired that this restriction only applies if the instruction you download specifically states that you are not allowed to use NIO. If your instructions do not mention NIO then you are free to use it.

How many time I have to submit my project after downloading the assignment?
Take a look at the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ questions "Should I purchase both parts (the exams and assignment) at the same time?" and "How long do I have to complete the assignment?".

What�s the average time to finish the project (code and documentation)? In my case I have few hours a day (4hs) during the week and weekends.
Take a look at the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ question "How Long will it take me to complete the assignment?". Of course this is a very rough estimate - the Sun site suggests a much shorter length of time, and there have been some candidates that have taken years to complete their assignments.

Regards, Andrew

Hi Rodrigo,

Well you could buy through Amazon.com. If you use this link Amazon will give a percentage of the book back to JavaRanch to help keep this site running.

Alternatively you can purchase an electronic version direct from Apress.

Another alternative might be to contact the Apress sales representive for South America, and ask where your closest stockist is.

Regards, Andrew
