Hi everybody, I have some questions related to the design document, please help. Since my English is not so good, I want to using point form in the design document. Do you think it will deduct some marks? In my design document, one of my topic is "Network Choice" and I use RMI in my assignment. What should be the content of this topic? I have written why I using RMI, but I also need to write why I'm not using socket programming? Thx a lot
Hi Alan I think using point form is an excellent idea for the design document. This meets Sun's requirements, and makes it a lot easier for you and for the examiner.
In my design document, one of my topic is "Network Choice" and I use RMI in my assignment. What should be the content of this topic? I have written why I using RMI, but I also need to write why I'm not using socket programming?
It depends on what your reasoning was for using RMI (that does not mean that I want you to post your reasoning here though ). If your reasoning contains things like "this is better / easier / .... in RMI than sockets" then you probably do not need to repeat it as a reason against sockets. But if you only mention good points for RMI and dont indicate what the bad points for RMI are, or what the benefits of RMI over sockets are, or what the bad points for sockets are, then you might want to add some extra points saying why you dont want sockets.

Hi Andrew, Thx a lot. I know how to present my design in the document. One more question, according to other candidate, "RMI vs Socket" may be asked in essay part. Then how to answer it? I think only list advantages of RMI is not enough. Regards, Alan

Hi Alan, Try and make your answers to any question in the exam match the answers you put in your design document. The exam is only there to ensure that you wrote your assignment. There are no right and wrong answers. So as long as the answers on the exam match your submission, you should be fine. Regards, Andrew
