Hi All,

Just now I uploaded assignment.

I got this message after uploading

Thank you. Your upload has been successfully received.

Is this enough confirmation or should I get confirmation number?

Anyway everything will go okay and I will clear the exam.

On this 26th Oct 2009 I am giving essay exam.

What should I prepare ?

Reading choices.txt will be enough?

will 3 days enough to prepare for essay exam?

I know nobody will tell me the exact questions but what kind of sample questions I should prepare for essay exam?

Howdy, Pramod!

First of all, good luck, partner!

There will be 4 generic questions, about things that only who really developed the solution is able to tell, like, what did you use (RMI/Sockets) and why, things about your searching mechanism, your locking mechanism and so on. The more you know about your solution and your architecture, the better. One good tip is to give details about your implementation, because the idea of this exam is to show them that you are really the guy that developed everything, so it will be good if you can say, for instance, "oh, my class PramodAbstractTableModel extends AbstractTableModel and has 5 super-cool methods".

And just taking a quick look at your choices.txt file is ok.

Cheers, Bob "John Lennon" Perillo

I've uploaded the assignment nearly 2 weeks ago, and taken the essay exam last Monday.

In the events table in the certification database ( etc) I see an entry that the essay exam was taken, but no mentioning of the assignment whatsoever... and in the Certmanager there's no change at all, it still shows the upload and download buttons and nothing more...

Now I'm getting worried about the assignment... could you, who already know, please tell us how it went in your case?

thanks a lot for that

Hi Roel,

many thanks for the hint. I also have this "taken" instead of "pending" and so it could be O.K., but with all these different and possibly changing IDs you get from Sun and Prometric, I will write a mail to Sun all the same...

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
