In Java 1.4 Exam (310 - 035) StringBuffer is not covered - Is it right?

In case of Strings, I can see only �Describe the significance of the immutability of String objects.� point on Sun website.

Asking this question because on
Dan's Website , it is given String Buffer in Section 8.
Thank you in Advance.

You appear to be right. Sun's website listing the exam's objectives does not explicitly list StringBuffer. Nonetheless, some (ahem... hint, hint) basic knowledge of StringBuffer is needed.

J is correct! Even though the objectives don't say so, you most probably get several questions that use the more common methods of the StringBuffer class!

Thank you Borderi / Bert,

Sun's website listing the exam's objectives really needs lot of improvements other than just �StringBuffer�. I was ignoring all StringBuffer questions!!

Anyway, can you please inform what else (similar like StringBuffer) is not mentioned on Sun�s website and they are expecting from us?

Thank you in Advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
