I ASKED:
1. Must the customer ID that is entered by CSR's and used to book contractors
be of length 8, or can it be smaller?

2. I do not understand the following "Must" requirement from section
TARGET PLATFORM EXECUTION:
"Your programs must not require use of command line property specifications.
All configuration must be done via a GUI, and must be persistent between runs
of the program. Such configuration information must be stored in a file
called suncertify.properties which must be located in the current working
directory."

hat configuration/property specifications are you refering to? The only
thing I can think of is the last "mode" the user ran the application. What
else would I possibly store in suncertify.properties? Or are you just saying
if I do allow the user to configure something then store them in this file?
SUN'S DIRECT RESPONSE:
1) Shorter customer IDs are ok.
2) The most recent mode would not need to be stored, because the one allowable command-line arg determines the mode. A client in remote mode might want to store the most-recently-connected-to server. I'll leave it to you to work out what this would be used for. This is the kind of info we had in mind.

Hey, was this Monica? I got my response today too (see here). Mine was much shorter though. She must like you better than me.

her in regards to the search requirements.
