just came back from vegas, and found my score report and a letter from sun apologizing for the long waiting.
Test: Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform (310-027)

Comment: This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual number of points you were awarded. This is provided to give you per-section feedback on your strengths. The maximum possible # of points is 155; the minimum to pass is 124. General Considerations(maximum = 58): 56 Documentation(maximum = 20): 20 GUI(maximum = 24): 20 Server(maximum = 53): 51
-----------------------------------------------
here's a brief design decision of mine:
1) modified data class and used RMI;
2) used a LockManager class to monitor the locks, it uses singleton pattern. and it's the only place i explicitly used design patterns;
3) allow users to switch modes using a dialog;
4) a very simple gui, with 2 menu items, a main frame (divided into 3 panels), gridbag layout for the panels. the only fancy feature i used is the ItchedBorder for each panel;
5) only throw RemoteException(wrapper for all) from server to client;
6) documentation is simple, i wrote a 4-page html user manual with some images to show the screenshots.
in general , i have packages and classes:
1) client:
StartDialog (to switch)
FBNClient (main gui)
DataInterface
RemoteDataClient
LocalDataClinet
2) Server
DataServer
DataServerImpl
3) Data
Data
LockManager
DataInfo
FieldInfo

Congrats An, you did very well. By the sounds of your GUI, you should have gotten 24/24.

thanks everybody.
xiaoma, both my LocalDataClient and RemoteDataClient implments the same interface DataInterface. The only difference between them is that remote one's constructor does a lookup for the remote dataserver and then use it as the data source. the local one uses the data as its data source.
