taking John Hunt's mock SCJP exam, am finding a lot of java.awt questions, which i wasn't aware would be on the real exam. i'm mainly a servlet / bean programmer, so i have no familiarity with this package. will it be on the test? if so, why is it not listed in the objectives? if not, is there any particular reason these questions are on John Hunt's mock exam?

The AWT package was a part of the SCJP 1.2 exam, which is still available. AWT is not included on the SCJP 1.4 exam.

SCJP Tipline, etc.

I had a hunch that was it, thank you!

BTW, the same goes for any I/O questions.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
