Hi,

I just realized that there is a newer version of Java (click here)

I have been trying to get release date of Java 1.6 update 3 and 1.6 update 4 to know if I can still submit my assignment compiled with update 3 but i couldn't find release dates.

Does anyone know where I can find release dates?

hi;

i think sun mean production version so you must read the following docuemnt
about the Java Product version, JavaTM SE 6, Platform Name and Version Numbers

but for date, i don't know when the version 1.7 will avaliable and then
exceed 18 months.

I'm no expert on the SCJD, but I don't think the release dates of the patch updates (3, 4, ...) matter. What matters is the date of the first release of Java 6.

Hi again,
Thanks Mohamad, from the date (Sept 07) I can tell that I can still submit with the current version.

That page specifically talks about the "Update N" release of Java 6, which is most definitely irrelevant to the SCJD (and 9/27 is the date of an early alpha build anyway, while the SCJD dates concern themselves with production release dates).

But since Java 7 has not been released yet, any version of Java 6 would be fine to use.

Silly question. I'm about to start this assignment using Java 6 update 4. Is this acceptable, i.e. it is a production version?

Yes, as you can see here.
