Great score, may I ask what do you think you are missing from your GUI?

Do you have the following:
mnemonics on all the buttons and textfield labels?
Accelerators on the menu items?
are all components tab browsable?
Do you have graphics on your button?
Are your columns sortable?
Did you gray out unbookable items? (or has options to filter out unbookable itmes)

I am just wonder because this is all I did, and I don't know what to do more to get better score.

Awesome score! Questions: Did you use 3 tier approach? Design patterns such as Facade? I am trying to figure out how to deal with the database and the provided interface. I know you can't use it as it stands with RMI, but can have other classes implement it and throw RMI specific exceptions from the new class. I am starting to get an understanding of how to do this thing after many months of Again, congrats, you must be glad to have it behind you.
