I'm developing my GUI at the momment though it's beginning to resemble the example in Max's book, I feel like I'm cheating has anyone felt the same ?

Hi Tony,
Nope
I guess you prepare URLyBird assignement. You cannot 100% copy his GUI for this, because these projects are pretty different. Still if you sowhow managed to copy all of it, I think it is Ok as long as you are ready to justify on your design decisions.

But for some assignments, for example FlyByNight, a lot, if not all, can be used. Have anybody 'copied' this example and passed?`

Hi Flemming,
I wouldn't recommend it: I designed the application so that it would force you to consider all of the relevant questions, but it's not a simple one off, by architectural design. Heck, you'll probably do a better job then I did anyway, all said and done. If you don't, then I didn't make all of my goals as a teacher.

He he, wasn't planning on copying the entire app, since the point of all of the Java Certifications, at least for me, is the learning experience.
However, having read your book, at lot of the design choices, and some of the code, stick in my mind. And some part of the code could be reused very well. For example, the 'splash screen' promting the user for a choice of remote og local connection, could be a good candidate for reuse.
So the question should have been, weather or not some of the code can be reused, without this leading to failure.

P.S. I think it is very cool that you guys take the time to answer question in here.. )

I thought it was for all the java groupies

Ok, I think I follow you know. The answer is yes, absolutely. That was the entire point. We actually tried to come up with a project that was more challanging then the assignment, so you could take advantage of the learning process. And the current count of people who've passed using the book is in the hundreds, so I hope there's something there.
