Scraping Sun Microsystems’ CertManager

Waiting for SCJD or SCEA results can be a bit of a pain. The lucky amongst you may get them in a couple of weeks. On the other hand, you could face a wait of up to six weeks.

To make life a little easier I decided to cobble together an HTML scraper to automate the checking process.

Although there are no binaries at this point in time, you can checkout the source code from SourceForge. For SVN details click the Develop tab.

Usage

According to the CertManager Test History page "tests are imported during regular business hours (GMT -07:00)".

Extending it

Adding your own service listener should be a pretty straightforward task: simply implement PropertyChangeListener and register with the service. As an example; if you live in a timezone other than GMT -07:00, and want to get notified ASAP, you could implement a listener to send an email, or SMS, once the specified test result has been found.
