I passed SCJD :)

Hi all,

Today I checked that I passed SCJD . It was very quick, it took less than a week to assess. The score is below:

The maximum possible score is 400; the minimum to pass is 320.
General Considerations (maximum = 100): 79
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 37
Locking (maximum = 80): 44
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

I would like to thank you all for support and help, this certificate would be much harder without it.

Best wishes,
Pawel

Congrats Pawel!
GUI (maximum = 40): 37

Could you comment your GUI design? Elaborated, simple and extensible,..?

Hi,

My GUI was very standard, menu, toolbar and table. Searching criteria were entered in separate dialog window using combo-boxes (which also were initialized with values from database). For customer id I used JOptionPane. I made table with records sortable but I think this is not necessary. I tried to make my GUI complete, so I added mnemonics, accelerators etc.

I'm little disappointed with my locking score, I spent a lot of time implementing it. Well, I must have missed something.

Best Regards,
Pawel

Congrats.

I never thought of using a combo-box for the search criteria.

What did you put on your toolbar? I can hardly think of anything to fill a toolbar

Hi,

I put 'Book' and 'Search' options on the toolbar.

isn't that pretty much all the function available? So you have buttons on your panel and your toolbar has the same buttons?

No, I have only toolbar and menu. I don't have any buttons on panel, only table.

Were the name and location comboboxes editable?

Hello Sergey,

Yes, they were.

I did that too however, there is no need for it, as my search algorithm is simple - match or not match. No trimming or otherwise manipulating the record data when searching. This way I think I am safe with either null or space padded values.

Thank you again.

Hi Pawel!
Did you use the same table to show search results? How do you switch between Show all/Show search results? I'm thinking about it as a Filter (as in MS Access) that you can apply/delete.

Hi Tanya,

I used the same table to show search results. After accepting search dialog, table updated and displayed search results. To show all records you had to search again with specific criteria. I guess 'Show all' option could be a better solution for that.

Best Regards,
Pawel
