My assignment is Bodgitt and Scarper, version 2.1.2. I downloaded it in March 2004, and due to the complexity of my life I was not able to work on it until last week. (Actually I have started several times, but never succeeded to continue). Is this assignment still valid ? Can I implement and submit it ? On what JDK ?

Zafer,

Yes, the assignment is still valid; it has no expiration date.

Regarding the JDK level, check your instructions. In mine (which was URLyBird), section 'Deliverables' sub-section 'Target Platform and Execution' contained a statement:
"... the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission."

So, currently you must use Java 5.

Thank you for the answer.
One more question, the exam name is "Sun Certified Developer for Java 2 Platform", notice the "Java 2". Is Java 1.5 a member of the Java 2 family ?

Yes, version 1.5 is still J2SE (J2SE 5.0).
As of version 1.6, it changes from J2SE to Java SE but version 1.6 still in beta. (Similarly, from J2EE to Java EE as of Java "enterprise" edition 1.5)
