Hi guys,

took the written exam this morning and I am finished now .

Was no problem actually, had four question relating to the following issues:
  • networking
  • table
  • locking
  • gui

  • I needed exactly 2 hours, however, had a lot to say (I guess more than in my choices.txt) 30-40 lines / question.

    Have a good feeling, but I hope there's no automatic failure in my submission.
    See you guys in 4-6 weeks again when I get the result!

    Thanks to all of you, especially to Roel and Roberto doing a great job here !

    The next step on the road will be to take the SCWCD in November 2010.

    Howdy, Andy!

    Champion, I like the way you presented the points that appeared in your exam. It is indeed prohibited to post real questions here, however, you presented the points in a high level of abstraction.

    Good luck, champion. I'm pretty sure soon you'll also be a SCJD!

    Hi Roberto,

    I increased the level of abstraction a little bit further.
    I hope this is ok this way, don't want to get in trouble with Sun?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Andy,

    I took the written exam too this afternoon, nearly the sam questions as you have.

    I have a good feeling too, but the best feeling is because this exam is at the end and it took a long time ...

    I think tomorrow I will submit my code (after a last look at it) and then .. waiting for the achievement. I think it takes a minimum of 4 weeks, but there seems to be exciting times and it can take a longer time...

    Just for the rest of you guys..
    Andy and I work for the same company and we have a company-internal program which takes over 35 programmers on a ride across the sun certifications ... starting with the SCJP and for some of them ending with SCEA...

    So I say thanks for this forum. It helps a lot ..

    Kind regards,

    SCJP 6.0

    Hello Everybody,

    I took the Essay exam today.
    Similar if not the same questions.

    I emailed who2contact@Sun.COM and the other 2 email addresses @Oracle.COM 2 days ago
    to submit my assignment and still no answer.

    If by Monday I don't hear anything I will start calling them on the phone directly.

    Best Regards,

    Hum... it's pretty likely that will not hear anything by monday, champion. I'd suggest you to wait until wednesday or thursday, champ.
