Free (or open-source) mock exam engine

Hi Ranchers,
I'm conducting a Java seminar/training for our company next month and I'm thinking of putting up the quizzes in a mock exam engine similar to Sun's certification exam. Any links/info on free (or open-source) and configurable (no. of items, selection of items, etc.) mock exam engines will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for all the help!

Val,
Send an email to Cory McGlone. He's one of the moderators for this message board so you can click on his link at the top of the "Programmer Certification" page.

There are no free, open-source, configurable mock exam engine that I know of. I have developed one myself but it is still in alpha version. I haven't really found the time to finish that piece of code and I don't know when I will get that chance.
Anyone else?

Hi Val,
I suggest that you it up at SourceForge and have the distinction of being the first one!!! And maybe later it will also be used for other exams as well and not only for Java.

I would like to but I wish days would have 72 hours and human beings wouldn't need to sleep at night so that I could do all I have to do :roll: SourceForge is indeed a very good idea but I have something else in mind for my mock engine which I can't reveal right now, sorry. What would be the time cost for you to build up one of your own?

Ditto. And I would like to add that I wish people would be multithreaded (cloned? so that they could do simultaneous things at once :roll: So I wouldn't be able to put it up on time if I code the exam engine.

Thinking of making it a commercial software, perhaps? Good luck!

People are multithreaded, they just have to share the same CPU. Time segmentation perhaps?

Hi guys,
Thanks for all the replies. Before this thread completely goes off-tangent, it is quite clear that there is really no free or open-source mock exam engine out there. My main reason is that I just would like to find out if somebody know of one.
Or maybe this'll become a programmer's itch that needs to be scratched
OK, I'll just be resourceful enough come my seminar/training day.
Again, thanks for all the replies!

Hi, Val:
If you like, you can have a look at my Mock Exam Engine, it is a general purposed mock exam engine. Now it only contains exam data for SCJP2, but can be configured for other mock exam.
regards,
Guoqiao
