Hi, every friend:
My assignment is FBN. I want know something about the delivery.
all file packed into a jar, the name is MyTestID.jar, such as i12345678.jar.
the follow files are in the jar:
=======================================================
README.txt a readme file
GUIDE.txt(.html) a guide to use the project
DESIGN.txt main design choices and decisions
db.db database file
client.jar client jar file
server.jar server jar file
docs<DIR> the javadoc files
src<DIR> all source codes
classes<DIR> all class files
META-INF<DIR>
=======================================================
I have some Questions below:
1.Someone's ID starts with "sp", but I can't find a ID with the prefix. Mine starts with "i". Does it right that the jar file should named with the Test ID?
2.With the List of the jar file, Is something been missed?
3.May I write the guide file in HTML formatted with some user interface pictures?If it is permitted, does it mean I should use a directory named guidedoc and put the html and the image files in it.
4.with the src and classes directory, need it to be separated into client and server? Such as srcClient<DIR>, srcServer<DIR>, classesClent<DIR>, classesServer<DIR>.
Thanks for your help.
Best regards
LJ

Hi LJ
Welcome to JavaRanch
1.Someone's ID starts with "sp", but I can't find a ID with the prefix. Mine starts with "i". Does it right that the jar file should named with the Test ID?

The ID is the number Prometric use to identify you. This is the number you type in when you do an exam at a Prometric approved site. It is also the number printed on the top of your score sheet that is printed immediately following your exam. If this is your "i" number then you probably have the correct number.
As for the naming scheme, you will get explicit instructions when you go to upload your jar file. They may ask you to name it a different way. You could also look at the question How should I name my submission jar file? on our JavaRanch SCJD Links and FAQ page.
With the List of the jar file, Is something been missed?

It looks like you have everything.
You listed "GUIDE.txt(.html)" - is this a HTML document with a ".txt" extension? If so, then I think you should use the ".html" extension.
May I write the guide file in HTML formatted with some user interface pictures?If it is permitted, does it mean I should use a directory named guidedoc and put the html and the image files in it.

Yes, it is permitted to use HTML for the user documentation.
Putting it in a separate directory will certainly make your distribution a bit neater. As long as your README.txt file describes where it is you should be fine.
I used HTML for my user documentation, and had it in a separate directory.
with the src and classes directory, need it to be separated into client and server? Such as srcClient<DIR>, srcServer<DIR>, classesClent<DIR>, classesServer<DIR>.

There is no need to have separate directory structures for your submitted source. Just whatever directory structures are required for your packages.
Regards, Andrew

Hi Andrew:
Your answers are so complete and clear. I have knew everything I wanted. I greatly appreciated your help.
I've view the web page of the JavaRanch SCJD Links and FAQ. I have some new questions.
1. I know the MVC, but I didn't use it in my assignment. Is it necessary that the MVC should be used in the assignment?
2. I used origin and destination field in the search functionality. Is it enough? Is it necessary that I should add all the fields into the search functionality.
Best Regards!

Hi LJ
No, it is not mandatory that you use MVC.
In the new assignments, Sun have written the instructions in such a way that MVC is hinted at. Many people use it anyway in both old and new assignments just because it is a useful pattern. But there have been people in the past who have passed and claimed that they did not knowingly use any patterns.
I used origin and destination field in the search functionality. Is it enough?

Yes, that is enough for the GUI. The criteriaFind() method in the Data class should allow for other fields to be searched on, but you dont have to put anything else into the GUI.

Thanks again for your great help.

Would you get more points if you search on all three: carrier, destination, and origin? It isn't difficult to implement all three criteria and if it keeps one from losing points, it seems worthwhile to implement.
I chose to filter by all three criteria even though my instructions say
the user should be able to select the origin and destination of flights.
One main reason to implement it is that it is a good way to ensure the criteriaFind method works correctly with various combinations of carrier, destination, and origin filter criteria.

Maybe it is a good idea for not losing points. I think it is easy for me to implement because i used array for arranging the search field. I will just add it.
Thanks for your reminding and help.
Best Regards!

Hi John
You dont get extra points for implementing anything outside of the specification.
I also had a selection list for carrier in my GUI, as I thought the specification was vague enough that it might be required. After I submitted, I found that there were people who had received 100% for their GUIs who only had origin and destination airports as selection criteria.
Since you already have carrier, I would advise you to leave it in - there should be no penalty for it.
Regards, Andrew
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
