Youhouhouh!!! I did it!! passed my SCJD with 388/400 !! I lost points only on my GUI : 28/40, I don't really know why but it is of no importance. It's the end of a long, long work, a special thanks to roberto perillo who reassured me on key point every time I needed it. For the info, I totally missed a question of the assignment, aswering exactly the contrary of what I programmed, but fortunately the three others questions where correctly justified. Pfew....

David,

Congrats! Great score

I guess you used at least jdk 1.5. Did you used RMI for the network? If so, did you compile your stubs with rmic?

Kind regards,
Roel

Hi,

I used jdk 1.6. Yes I did generate the Stub via rmic. I logged with a System.out.println to check that my Stub was really used by the application, else with jdk 1.6, if you did not generated correctly the stub or if there is none, there will be no error : the jvm creates it dynamically for you. Kind of magic. But not allowed by the exam. Once I ensured that my Stub class was used and not an automatically generated, I removed the System.out.println.

I don't know if I am allowed to describe how I handled exception and errors in my programm. Someone told me via PM how I did it, but if I'm allowed to, I will be glad to explain.

Best regards,

David.

Hi David,

I know according to the assignment it is not allowed to use the magic from happening with jdk 1.5 or 1.6 and automatically creating those stubs. But there are people that also used the same jdk and didn't used rmic, and passed anyway. So just interesting in what you did, because i'm close to finishing and that's a point where i'm still in a doubt

Kind regards,
Roel

As long as you keep it relatively generic, you can certainly discuss how you handled exceptions and errors.

Congratulations on passing.

Hi David,
Congratulations for your great score !

Should I understand that you have delivered also the source files for the stubs classes ?

Thanks,

Liviu

Thank you Andrew. And thanks for your book also, it was very helpful, as if my instructions have nothing to do with the one in the book, it gives a good idea of what to do. I will post something about error handling in a more appropriate post.

Hi David,

I had another small question: how did you handle a possible InterruptedException (when using wait/notify/notifyAll)? and did you mention something about the handling in your choices.txt?

Kind regards,
Roel
