You do not have to know this. How does it even matter what color is used ? What if I use a doclet that converts the javadoc to PDF and uses some other color ? Such questions will not be asked in the SCJP exam.

You have got to be kidding me. JDK 1.1?

Chill. My comment was aimed at your link, not you. Do you really think there will be questions on the JDK 1.1 Javadoc on the test?

I think that test is not even for SCJP5 and SCJP6. The version is far too outdated. Test yourself with examlab and masterexam.

Hmmm.... As Bear already said, that mock test is not the best one to use to prepare for SCJP 5 or SCJP 6. Java 1.1 is really old - it's a version of Java from 1998 or so. You will certainly not get questions like "what colors are used in Javadoc for instance methods" on the SCJP exam - so don't waste your time with that mock exam.

Have a look at our SCJP FAQ and list of mock tests.

Especially popular for preparing for SCJP is the SCJP Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (also known as "K&B"). It contains a lot of practice questions and a practice exam. Also Devaka Cooray's ExamLab is used by many people on the forum here for SCJP practice.

A lot of my JavaDoc is black on a white background. I printed it.

Actually, the original JavaDocs were a lot more colorful and artistic. The ones we use these days are more spartan, but denser in information.

Also, depending on where it is, it could also be blue!

It's also easy to change with a change of CSS.

Mine are maroon!

Actually the Java 1.1 documentation was formatted very differently from the documentation we have now, which has remained pretty much unchanged since Java 2 came along.

But I don't remember what colour was used for instance methods, in fact I don't even remember colour-coding being used. It certainly hasn't been used in the Java 2 style documentation, perhaps there were concerns about accessibility. (Remember that a considerable percentage of the human race is colour-blind.)

So,yeah, my opinion of that question is pretty low too.
