Hi Friends,
I am in the initial stages of my assignment completion.I ahve some doubts regarding the final packaging and the design and readme .txt documents.
What should be the content of theses documents.My client jar will require some files from the server side so as to run normally,do i include specific files or should i in general include all the files from the server side in client.jar.
I will be having 'db' package in both of my client and server jar files.Database file will also be present in both of them for use locally and remotely.
I am not using any policy file or security manager, while starting up client.As they are not required for the assignment implementation.
Any comments are welcome.

The instructions.html details all the content needed for the readme.txt.
The design.txt document is for you to "defend" your design. Meaning what are the decisions you made to create your assignment. Did you chose RMI or Sockets and why? stuff like that. And things like how did you incorporate MVC in your design.
The client.jar will have files that it needs from the server to run. Some people make a seperate jar file for those shared classes, but that isn't necessary.

Policy file and Security manager is not madatory. In my assignment not used these 2 files. I got 144/155. Better to write simple server.
I agree. Here's the link:
