I don't know anything about password or userid. But after about one week (after passing scjp) you should try to register at (you will also probably get an email before, saying that you can do it). All important things (like registration number) are on the Examination Score Report which you received in the Exam Center. After you will register, there will be FAQ, in which you will find information what should you do when your name isn't write properly (it will be writen that you have to write to If you want you can write to this address now, but anyway you will have to wait several days for a response).

P.S You will find a few more topics here in forum about this problem.

You will get NO mail from Sun. For your logo you have to send a request to Sun. they will provide you with a user-name and password and the site from where you can download the logo. And the site provided above will guide you through the rest of the processes, like you have to update your address(mailing) and your certification progress etc...And after 25 days(probably) you will get your certificate, card and letters of appreciation.. Enjoy

When I wrote to two weeks ago with similar problem, i got response:
There is a delay of approximately 3-7 business days before your exam records will appear in the Sun Certification Database at

You will receive a confirmation email once your exam results have been updated in the database. We appreciate your patience.

So that's why I wrote that sun will send some kind of message. But perhaps this is not completely true, since I haven`t received such a message and I have already registered at this website.

I have got question, because everybody are writting about this logo. Is there some kind of diffrence if I will receive it from Sun, or I will just find this logo (picture) using google? Is there some kind of watermak on it?

Strictly - you will GET mail from Sun ..... but you wont get e-mail
In this mail you will receive a plastic card with your name , a paper cerificate and two congratulations letters
- in one letter you will find the link to the site from which you can get this logo.

I dont think that you find this logo using google because the logo is registered trademark and if you want to get it you must agree license terms,
and these terms clearly say that you may not give the logo to anyone.

I agree. Here's the link:
