Hi guys, my name is Jeffry, currently I'm preparing SCJD. When I check the website,, I found that the scoring area is different. Here's the snippet:

The maximum number of possible points is 400. The minimum passing grade is 320. The maximum points per category are:

Categories - Maximum points
General Considerations - 80
Documentation - 50
Object-Oriented Design - 50
GUI - 70
Locking - 80
Language Fluency - 70 (What the meaning of this?)

Additionaly The Sun training named SL-285 SE6 doesn't support Sun certification anymore.

does anyone has an idea about this replacement? Will it be harder to passed this certification?

There is no network server in the scoring scheme.

hi Jeffry Kristianto Yanuar;

when you download your assignment you can find the up to date information
and notes about the scoring and any mis-point about it.

Best regards.
