ramesh,
what do you mean by graphics? Graphics class? Or do you mean awt & paint?
Though painting is not in the objectives, you may get questions from painting. Components and Layouts are part of the objectives.
Hope it helps,
Suresh.

The properties specific to applets are not on the test but you should know where applets are in the component hierarchy.

Does that imply that components are in the exam. I've looked through the objectives and there seems to be no indication of GUI components like menus etc being part of the exam. However, I have seen 'mock' exams including questions about fonts, colors, panels etc.
Has anyone got experience of being tested on these subjects??

It is very likely you will get some questions related to the java.awt package on the test. I was highly surprised to get a question on GridBagLayout! Events, listeners, etc may show up too.
If you intend to get proficient in Java you will need to work with the AWT components anyway so jump right in.

Thanks William. I do however disagree slightly with your last point. I've been comercially involved with server-side java for some time (Servlets, JSP, EJB etc) so proficiency in client (GUI) -side Java does not really mean much to me. I do feel that maybe the AWT components should not be part of the exam because it is more an API (like Servlet API etc) rather than core language... Maybe this is a throwback to when Java just meant Applets?...... Of late, Java has got more of a stranglehold on component based, server-side Enterprise computing.
Thanks again,
Richard
