This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
When I look at my assginment (B&S) I see that the server part goes for 40 points. That is equal to the points given to the gui and data class.
I was wondering, because if you implement the server with RMI, you endup with one main class (which starts the RMI registry and publishes you remote database) , one remote interface and a implementation/adapter class. This are 3 classes with like 100lines of codes if you count them all.
Since it is so trivial and there is no real difficulty about it, I wonder how they are going to give those 40 points ? I mean, with RMI it works or it doesn't no ? When you build your own server (sockets/serialization) I can understand that you can make certain mistakes. But when you use RMI you use something thats allready been made, you just *use* it. And I don't see how it can be used wrong, since its so trivial.
So, am I missing certain issues ? or is this really it ?
