Hi guys, I am almost done with my assingment. :-) I have one more question. In my assignment its not asked to make a readme.txt file. The executable JAR containing the programs. This must be called runme.jar. The original, unchanged database file that was supplied to you. Note that you must keep a copy of the original database file supplied to you, and this must be the file you submit. The marking process will expect the exact same data without any changes. A directory called code, containing all the source code and related parts of your project. You must create subdirectories within this to reflect your package structure and distribute your source files within those directories. A file called version.txt. This must contain pure ASCII (not a word processor format) indicating the exact version of JDK you used, and the host platform you worked on. A directory called docs, containing the following items at the top level: This html file. A subdirectory called javadoc, containing HTML/Javadoc documentation for all classes and interfaces you are submitting. A file called choices.txt that containing pure ASCII (not a word processor format) text describing the significant design choices you made. Detail the problems you perceived, the issues surrounding them, your value judgments, and the decisions that you made. This document should also describe any uncertainties you had regarding the project, and the decisions you made when resolving them. User documentation for the database server and the gui client. If your user documentation is online then you may omit this file. However, if the documentation is not online, you must provide either a single plain ASCII (not word processor format) text document, which must be called userguide.txt, or multiple HTML files which must all be accessible from a starting point document that must be called userguide.html.
But I often see peoples who make a readme.txt file. What to do now?? any suggestions?? thanks a lot ;-) Baris Dere

Hi Baris, Follow your instructions . I still refer to the readme.txt file in my posts because that was required in my instructions. But I had the Fly By Night Services assignment. There are differences in the assignments (even between different releases of assignments with the same name), so whenever you see someone talking about something that doesnt match your instructions, you should assume that they are talking about a different assignment or version. And then think about whether what they are saying can be adapted to your instructions. But no matter what, you must always follow your instructions. Regards, Andrew
