Congrats Henrik

Given that you got 80/80 for locking, could you tell me how you dealt with deadlock ?

To Alan:

My recommendation is to read this thread:

To Chandrasekhar:

I didn't prepare at all before taking the exam. I think that if you have written all the code that you submit then you won't have any problems with the exam.

As for books when writing the app... I had Kathey Sierras and Bert Bates book for the SCJP&SCJD. However, I think that this forum provides all the necassary info needed in order to succeed with the assignment.
