Rules Roundup game

Last August or so was the last time I played the rules roundup game. This was back when javaranch was Kathy's site. I remember that there was a bug in the program and that a few of the questions were ambiguous.
If anybody encounters the bug or an ambiguous question, please let me know and I'll fix it right away.

I'm a new user of Rules Roundup as of this week. My goal is certification, so I expect to be a regular visitor. Rules Roundup is fun; but at times I find myself wondering what # question am I on? There is no # reference with the questions. This could be useful in determining whether one has sufficient time to complete the questions if interrupted. Unless adding # references defeats the original intent of Rules Roundup, please add #'s. Thanks!
P.S.: I learned of this site via a posting in a discussion thread through the Gamelan link at the java.sun website. Thank you to whoever directed new Java users to Javaranch.

One of these days I'm going to dig through the game and add a few things. But only after I can remember what the bug is.

I found this:
Class Y is a subclass of class X. Will this compile? Y myY = new Y(); X myX = y;
The answer says it will compile - making some comment about how a parent class reference can hold a subclass type. From the answer, I believe the X myX = y should be X myX = myY.

Does Rules Roundup include questions related to Java 2 & also graphics capabilities? I don't recall encountering any yet that specifically dealt with issues in these areas.

I don't think so. I think all of the questions are 1.1 and 1.2 neutral.
For questions that go to those areas, check Marcus Green's site at www.software.u-net.com
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
