- Assignement : URLy Bird 1.2.1
- Submitted on 11/10 Results posted on 11/24.
- Three tier design. Client could call only find and book methods.
- Clients could not call lock/unlock.
- For the persistence tier used MappedByteBuffers(static) and Channels.Partitioned the database file into pages to provide for long record numbers.
- Used regular expressions to implement the find.
- Resources (database, network connection) were acquired/released from within business methods.
- Used a worker thread to clean up dead threads (weak references)
- The UI(which sucked!) had only a book and a search button, 2 search text fields, 1 owner id text field, search results JTable, menus, popup menus.(no custom renderers, no column sorting etc.)
- On the client side used a single controller(MVC).

Thanks everybody.
