Hi Ganesan Ponnusamy,

Thanks for being in JavaRanch for sharing your knowledge with all ranchers.

I think, being an Enterprise (J2EE) Application programmer, a person should be comfortable with the EIS tier to an extent. Also having a knowledge of the hosting environments (say a Web/Application Server) is equally important than that of APIs.

Are these aspects also covered? If so to what extent?

The product covers practical scenario questions to test the candidates experience level. Note that our question banks are developed by Java/J2EE experienced professionals and they are certified in relevant areas.

Hi Ganesan,

Thanks for the reply with the link. I have looked into it. The screenshot and video demo show the features. It looks great.

I have a couple of questions.

(i) Is there any chance a candidate can open the test(s) which he/she had already taken? Can we have the control on the time duration till which it can be active?

(ii) Some questions may have more than one correct answer (In case of Design related questions). In such case, how the evaluation goes? Mean to ask, the possible or more-related answers are also considered or should they exactly match with what is stored with the pack?

Thanks,
Raghavan alias Saravanan M.

Candidates can take the test(s) only once. There will not be any time duration in Offline Skill Evaluation Lab, but it is possible in our Online Skill Evaluation Lab.

Canidates can view the report of the taken tests any time based on the admin permission settings.

All of the correct choices should match for multiple choice / select the best option / match the following questions.

Hi Ganesan,

I have a couple of questions -

1) How many questions are there in the question bank? Does it include tests for J2EE 5.0?

2) Can we add new questions?

Thanks,

Thank you for the inputs Ganesan.

I could see only the 5.0 Tiger version in the Product Suite. Is SCJP 1.4 version also available?

Because not everyone is completely migrated to higher versions. If presently not existing, any plans to incorporate 1.4 version?

Thanks,
Raghavan alias Saravanan M.

So is the online skill evaluation something that has to be purchased separately ?
does it provide the ability to incorporate offline the Java/J2EE Developer tests and Java/J2EE Designer or Architect tests into it ?
