Are there any sample readme.txt and design.txt for the SCJD. Please let me know. I do not want to be too different than others if lots of you have followed some common pattern.

Hey Rajesh:
I do not know it is a common pattern or not. The following was the contents at the top in my README.txt file.
Contents:
---------
*THE VERSION OF JAVA(TM) 2 SDK, STANDARD EDITION, AND PLATFORM USED
*INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO EXECUTE THE PROGRAM
*THE LOCATION OF DATABASE FILE
*THE LOCACTION OF DESIGN CHOICES DOCUMENT
*A LIST OF FILES SUBMITTED HEREWITH
Then I described above them as a subtitle, what are they? how to execute? and where are they? That is all.
Good luck. -Bal

Bal - Thanks a lot friend. I have one silly question, we need to submot one jar file (may contain nested jars) right ?. I may assume that they will know to unjar it , correct ?. This jar file will contain other jars and documentation.

Hello Rajesh:
Do not assume them they know it? I know they know it. If anything goes wrong who is the victim? WE not them? Why to take a risk? so I gave them all baby steps what to do and how to do? May be it is dumb and stupid, under estimating their expertise. Mine was as below:
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO EXECUTE THE PROGRAM
------------------------------------------
Open a MS DOS window, unjar the application filename scjdaXXXXXXXXXXX.jar as described below and press ENTER:

[drive]:\>jar -xf scjdaXXXXXXXXXXX.jar
This will create the scjdExam folder. Change the directory to scjdExam folder. At [drive]:\> cd scjdExam press ENTER. At this point your location is [drive]:\scjdExam>_. This is the application location.
What Will Be Seen In The Root Of The scjdExam Folder:
----------------------------------------------------
There are two jar files; "server.jar", and "client.jar." In addition to these two jar files, there are two subfolders named "suncertify" and "docs." Other files in this [drive]:\scjdExam folder are "db.db", "my.policy", and "README.txt."
HOW TO RUN APPLICATION ON LOCAL MODE:
-------------------------------------
Type following command and press ENTER:
[drive]:\scjdExam>java -jar client.jar
.
.
.
blah, blah, blah
I did not do super, I had 90% and it was above than my exception.
Hope it helps. -Bal

Bal - Did you assume that they were going to use windows or windows like OS ?. Your sample document gave me that feeling. Let me know.

Rejesh:
I was not sure what they goanna use. They might have lot of resources but I don't. So, I mentioned only what I did and what I had. I did not care how did they grade me? My first line in my README.txt was as below:
The platform used for the development of this assignment is Windows Millennium [version 4.90.3000]. This application has been developed and tested in Windows Millennium and found to work properly in this environment. This environment has three drives, the C:\> hard drive, the E:\> Compact Disk drive, and the A:\> Floppy drive. This application has been written and tested in the C:\> drive. The developer student did not have access to another computer to launch and test this application to determine platform compatability.
Who cares what they use? I care what I use. Platform compatability was not a requirement. So, why should I take more headache?
Did I answer your question? Does it help? -Bal
