I have taken the third part essay exam on Jan.29, 2010. And I got an updated message from https://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment on Feb. 5, 2010:
Test: Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE 5, Part 3 (310-062)
Date Taken: 2010-02-05 18:00:01.023
Registration Number: *******(mask it)
Grade: P Score: 0
So I thought I have passed SCEA. However, I have not received my certification package yet after finished it 9 weeks. So I sent email@example.com to inquiry, There is no body give me any feedback.
I think you are fine - I have seen similar issues posted by ranchers here. I too have a similar issue the /sun website does not even show I passed the first test but the /sun_assignment shows I did. The two databases dont seem to be in sync for many candidates.

Thanks for your message which make me feel better. But the time (9 weeks) has passed almost double of what they claimed for the certification process. They even don't reply my email that i sent last week. Hope everything is fine and no joke there.
I am crossing my fingers to wait the good news comes.
It is ironic how the SCEA solution is being judged on reliability amongst other things when their own certification system is unreliable and does not honor SLAs.

There is no any record after Jan 30. That meant it does not synchronize the records of Grade "P" on Feb.5 which was in www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment
So I guess I should be ok but need contact them for the certificate kit.
