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).
