I just interviewed a guy, who says he got his java certification for the Java 2 platform in Oct 99.
I thought it came out later than that.
Thx in advance
Brian
So you actually do get a certificate.
Thanks Kathy,
I'll wait for that now, should be here in a few weeks.
All the best
Brian
When you are certified,
what do you get in the certificate package.
Is it a card, a certificate, sjcp stickers ...
Thx
Hi guys,
I would make sure that you know java.lang package well. You will get a good few questions on it. java.util is not as definite, so I would'nt worry too much about knowing it in great detail. The mock exams are quite similar to the questions that you will get in the exam, especially Marcus Greens exam no.2. What you get in that will be a similar score to what you will get in the real exam, give or take 10%.
Use this link http://www.geocities.com/nityananda_mukherjee/
for a list of all the latest mock exams. Note Jxam has been updated recently, and make sure you know no.23 Test your java knowledge.
Also know all about passing String and StringBuffer as arguements to methods.

Hi,
I just got my SJCP this morning, and if you are not already working, it improves your job prospects tenfold if not more, and if you are already working, expect a nice payrise.
It seems to be quite commonly known that a small percentage of people who take the exam get it first time, so if you have it on your cv, you will help you go to the top of the pile. Experience is the most valuable thing, so go for a mixture of experience and SJCP.
Good luck
Thanks Latha.
Good luck!!

Hi all,
I have at last joined the SJCP community. It took 3 attempts, and it was only this morning that I got the exam by the skin of my teeth. I would just like to thank everyone at javaranch. And for those who are having problems getting the exam, my advice is identify your problem areas and know them backwards.
It's a case of, know what you know and know what you don't know.
I'll keep in touch with the ranch, and offer a helping hand whenever I can.

Hi all,
When can a class be declared private?
Cheers,
Brian
Given the folowing classes which of the following will compile without error?
interface IFace{}
class CFace implements IFace{}
class Base{}
public class ObRef extends Base{
public static void main(String argv[]){
ObRef ob = new ObRef();
Base b = new Base();
Object o1 = new Object();
IFace o2 = new CFace();
}
}

1)o1=o2;
2)b=ob;
3)ob=b;
4)o1=b;
Ans 2 and 3.
I say 1, 2, 3
Why is option 1 wrong?
