Should we also provide client and server logging? Is it worth?

I wouldn't. It probably won't help your score and could possibly hurt it.
Besides, a real logging implementation would involve using Log4J or something similar - well beyond the scope of this project.

Hi Samual,
I had logging on the server but not to a file. Most of the server GUI was a large text area that logged server actions, exceptions, clients connecting, etc. I considered putting a "Save log to file" on the File menu, but decided against it.
Hope this helps,
Michael Morris

Hi guys,
I have implemented logging of client activities on the server. All client activities like connecting, enquiry, add, modify, lock & unlock etc. are logged into a large text area.
I have moved a step ahead by providing three different tabbed panes one to show all activities, another to show lock & unlock activities and another to show all exceptions thrown.
I have implemented save server log and clear server log functionality.
Note: It helped me a lot in debuggin my client.
Hope this helps.
I agree. Here's the link:
