Hi, for the listing of files in the Readme.txt file, would the following be sufficient according to you ?

or should I also include something like this for each source file:

Which would be ridiculous as they have all information in the javadoc, and I am telling them where to find that Javadoc ...

Under the section Deliverables it's stated that the README.txt should contain the names and a high level description of the purpose of each file in the submitted jar file. I'm done with the Java files, but what about the output from javadoc ?

The first one should be sufficient.

I listed each file, but used a generic description for the file types. Basically, I jarred up my files, put the output of jar tf assignment.jar into README.txt, and then did a search and replace for
.java - Java source code file
and did similar things for the javadoc, classes, etc. I also sorted them so that the most interesting files were at the top of the list, and the repetitive BS was at the bottom.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
