What is a reasonable amount of time needed to complete the programming assignment towards the Sun certified Java Developer certification?
The programming assignment can be broken into 3 parts. 1) Data Conversion Tool. 2) Database Server. 3) Client.
The Data Conversion is the easiest part and can be done in 2-3 weeks. The Database server is the hardest part and took me 10-11 weeks to design, develop and test. The Swing Client took about 4-5 weeks to design, develop and test.
