Congratulations, great score Jason
100% in every category except general considerations.
Why do you think the examiner deducted points for general considerations? Did you follow the Sun coding style guidelines?

Hey gang,
I'm not too sure about that either. I did have a few chunks of code that were good polymorphic refactoring candidates, but I would have thought that would have detracted from my OOP score.
I am assuming that they penalized me for some of the quality of my comments. In some cases, I was probably a little more elaborate than I needed to be.
I followed the Sun coding conventions to a "T", and used JIndent to help with the formatting and whitespace.
Thanks for the feedback everyone. I really appreciate it!
