Dear friends,
I am considering using jbuilder to build my GUI for the scjd assignment. Since I am going to use gridbag layout, I am not sure whether the automatic generated code will be acceptable by SUN.Can anyone give me some direction?
Or Should I choose a simple layout and hand code the GUI?

hi David:
Using generated code by any IDE tool is unacceptable be SUN. That defeats the purpose of the certification. It says that all the code you submit must be your own code.

Hanna is right. This may result in an automatic failure also by the examiner, if your submitted code uses any of JBuilder custom libraries or contains any comments with JBuilder copyright statements.Secondly the "junior programmer" may not have JBuilder to understand your code.

The assignment consists of a simple UI with JTable, the traditional way of hand coding the GUI in java is the preferred way.I think some smart ranchers have passed the assignment without using GridBagLayout manager, though I don't think I will be one among them.
