Policy File and CodeBase

Hi all,
I'm about to submit my assignment but have a last query. I have packaged everything into executable jars and, for the sake of simplicity, have not implemented any security policy or dynamic code downloading.
The spec of my assignment doesn't mention anything about security policies or code downloading. I have tested my app on a standalone computer (client and server on same machine) and across a LAN (client and server on different machines) and everything runs well.
Will I lose any credit for not using a policy file/code downloading?
Many thanks for any help. As I'm new to the forum I'd like to offer my help to anyone out there as well!

No, you will never lose credit for not doing something not asked for in the assignment.
In the contrary, if you try to add something and fail in it, you could lose points.
So it is advised to only go further than the requirements if you are sure of what you're doing.
Hope this helps,
I agree. Here's the link:
