After seeing Sam get failed for apparently missing some mundane detail, I'm panicking about this instruction: The names of the files you have submitted, with a note of their location in the directory structure, and a high level description of the purpose of each Do I really need to list ALL files, even .class files and the html from the javadoc? (a la 'find build -name "*.class"') Why is Sun taking my money and then wasting so much of my time on this outright silliness? What is my high level purpose description supposed to read, "Holds java bytecode to be run by the virtual machine"? Did anyone pass with something reasonable like: build - holds compiled class files Thanks.
Do I really need to list ALL files, even .class files and the html from the javadoc?
I listed all files, but I put a description for only critical ones: server.jar, client.jar, db.db, README.txt, DesignChoices.txt, UserDoc.txt. For the rest of the files, I put in a simple description for each group: javadoc files: list of .html files here compiled source: list of .class files here ... etc. I lost 1 point on documentation, but I don't think it was because of the format of my readme.txt. Eugene.
Here is mine a. FBNClient.jar: Client application b. FBNServer.jar: Server application c. FBN.policy: Policy file, which need to client and sever execution e. DesignChioces.txt: my Design Choices for this asignment f. Devassnmt2.jar: Original jar file from Sun Microsystem. g. db.db: Database file h. source.jar: source files of my application i. FBNDoc.jar: Jar file for FBN documentation I don't know what I missed though

Did you use some goofy format? I currently just have something like: Sectionlabel: item item item Secitionlabel: etc.
I think the reason there are some many confusions and panic is that Sun thought they have pretty clear instructions but people actually understand things in different ways..... I don't agree what they simply throw a FAIL to candidate without a single comment or feedback. I think we deserve at least 3-5 sentence explaination. Remember, we spend $400 for the exam, and countless hour of hardworking.... Maybe the accessor just received a pink slip, and tried to do something destuctive.... . Hey, you never know....trust me, human behavior is unpredictable......Okay. What I am trying to say is email them ask for their comments. Otherwise, you will spend a lot of time guessing. You have done enough work already..... its their turn. [ September 24, 2002: Message edited by: Sandra Baker ]

That's exactly what I said, The funny part is I got error page instead of detail page for two days (creating a simple web page!! Doohh) but after two days there was no comment on detail page Well anyway I hope you guys get through this assignment without anyproblem and good luck
Hi guys, I am listing my files in the following way: Directory: Docs (Contains documentation files) design choices.txt client_manual.txt server_manual.txt Directory: Docs\api (API spec. for submission) 1.html Javadoc generated api 2.html " 3.html " 4.html " ............ Directory: executables (executables for the assignment) client.jar client executable jar server.jar server executable jar policy.fbn policy file. db.db database file. Directory: suncertify\client (client source files) xx.java uy.java ..... So guys, you can see that i am listing each and every file in my assignment, and i am providing a high level description for each and every of them. I don't want to take any chance regarding this issue, so i am listing each and every file. I hope the examiners will be satisfied. Any sugetions,
