The fee you pay to Sun includes the Prometric fee. Therefore, you don't have to pay any additional funds above the exam fee.
Check the Sun web page for your region. The pricing is different from region to region.
I am so happy. After handing in my assignment on December 28th, I finally received my result.

General Con: 100 92
Documentation: 70 70
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 32
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 40
Network Server: 40 40
Total: 400 384

While I'm happy with the grade, I am most happy with the locking score. I think it's a section that is the most challenging.

I used this forum on occasion and many of my ideas were influenced by what I read here and by questions that I had answered by Java Ranchers. Thanks for all the help!

Just wondering, when did you write your essay exam? I wrote mine on December 28th and I still don't have my results.

Just wondering, what should I be doing, seeing as the web database is down until March 2nd? I've already sent two emails. At this rate, it might take 10 weeks to get my results. And I'm getting very impatient.

I'm in Canada and I believe the local office is handled in the US, so I don't think I have anyone else to go to except Prometric and Sun US (who2contact email address)

Please post when you receive your results.

The i7 web page seems to be having problems today. I am getting a 404.
I check both the CertManager web site and the i7 Certification Database. The are no results posted on either site.
I have still not received my results. I check both web sites daily. I've sent emails to both email addresses, and I have not received any responses.

I'm really frustrated with Sun. Evidently their policy is to not respond to emails. Is there a phone number I can call?
Thanks for the help. I check both web sites everyday for the last two weeks. My result is on neither web site.
I submitted my assignment on Dec 26th and wrote the exam on Dec 28th. My exam is still in pending status. That's 7 weeks. I'm getting frustrated!!! I'm really frustrated because I think I've seen one other individual who submitted after me and got his results back in 2 or 3 weeks.

I've already sent two emails to the who2contact email address.

Sorry, I just needed to vent.
You should be focussed on a good OO design. Not the number of classes.
I recommend building the RMI stubs. If I recall, I found that if I didn't throw a RemoteException in my code, you might end up with a clean java compile. But then when you run rmic, that's when the error shows up. So if you ask me, I would always generate the stubs, just to make sure your code is compliant and won't cause a runtime error.
My assignment stated "Your data access class must be called """

So in my opinion, you are not meeting the "must" requirement. Or I don't understand what you're doing.
I wouldn't do it. Sun asked you to implement DBMain, so you do so. Besides, it's likely that the examinor will put your Data class through a set of tests (may include load tests), and if you deprecate methods, then the examinor will get results that weren't what he/she was expecting.
Never mind this thread, I completely went off on a tangent today I guess being days away from handing it in, and you think you've got concurrency straightened out, will do that to you! For what it's worth, I do believe I've got concurrency straight in my SCJD. Just one of those days...
