Anyone knows what kind of question will come out in the essay exam? I could hardly find any sample question on the net....

First of all, there's a requirement that people use their first and last names instead of a handle and unless you go back and fix yours people will continue to tell you about it.
That being said, the questions in Part 3 are intended to make sure you are the person who actually did the work for Part 2. This means that they will ask things like "Did you use sockets or RMI to connect the client and server, and why did you make that decision?"
Since part of the project involves design decisions and trade-offs, you can expect questions about those areas.
From what others have posted, if you did the work for Part 2 and gave thought to your choices then you shouldn't have any trouble at all with Part 3.

check this out from Donald. It's the best I've seen so far. It should be in some sort of page with useful links!
I agree. Here's the link:
