My Score: 354
General Considerations (maximum = 100): 96
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 24
GUI (maximum = 40): 40
Locking (maximum = 80): 44
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40
I still don't why I only get 44 out of 80 in Locking (like some others). IMO, the locking should be perfect.
Cheers!

First of all, contratulations!

This mysterious locking grade---hmmm. Not exactly certain what they are looking for here. On one hand they are quite elusive in their requirements for locking, on the other hand, they think nothing about taking 50% off the locking grade!

Congrats Rick
One more with 44/80 locking score. Guys am feeling very nervous with all the locking scores.
Rick, any idea of what went wrong? I am just wondering if you can answer a couple of questions.
1. Did you wait on lockManager(if you had one) or on the record in lock method?
2. And did you use notfiy or notifyAll in the unlock method?
Thanks for the input.

Congrad!
I also wonder why I got 44/80 in locking, as I have used Stress Test to test the system before, without any errors encountered.
Anyway, you did a cool job!

1. Did you wait on lockManager(if you had one) or on the record in lock method?

My locking mechanism is on record-level. Only those clients who works on same records have to wait.

2. And did you use notfiy or notifyAll in the unlock method?

I used notifyAll here. But actually notify should be also OK. I don't remember exactly. But one article said that notify is preferred. This is not worth 40 scores, right?
I also did stress testing. Everything seems good. Why?
