General Considerations(maximum= 58): 53 Documentation(maximum = 20): 20 GUI(maximum = 24): 21 Server(maximum = 53): 53 Some of my decisions were: * I used Object Serialization over Sockets. * My DB Server had a GUI that redirected System.out and System.err into a window. * Encapsulated the locking into a LockManager class, relying on Thread wait and notifyAll with some helper objects. * I modified Data instead of extending it, however one of the modifications was to implement an interface which was also implemented by the remote db class. * It took me about 20 hours to do the project and about 30 hours to document it. * It took about 20 minutes to type out my answers to the exam questions.
