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.
I agree. Here's the link:
