jar package to upload

When I go upload my assignment (UrlyBird 1.2.3) on certmanager my jar should be named: scjda-myuserid.jar, the contents of this jar should be:
1) runme.jar (the class files)
2) original db file
3) directory called code (which will have all the source files)
4) directory called docs

What I was doing before: i had a runme.jar which contained the class files,db file, code and docs. I was thinking I should rename this file to scjda-myuserid.jar and submit that.

Which way is correct?

thanks

There are two jar files: runme.jar (contains your class files) and scjda-xxx.jar. The latter contains the former, the database file, your docs, etc.
See the runme.jar as a jar that is used to run your application (java -jar runme.jar) and the scjda-xxx.jar as a normal zip or lzh file to store all your files together so you can upload everything in one go.
They just decided to use jar instead of zip or lzh for that.

Is the name same in version 1.2.2
I can't find which parts specified scjda-myuserid.jar in 'instructions.html'

Thanks in advance

I do not think it is related to your version. The name is not mentioned in the instructions.html, but on the homepage when you upload your assignment.
See below:


Upload instructions for the Java 2 exam:

Submitting Your Work
When you have completed your solution, you should build a jar archive. You must build an archive; do not send individual files.

The name of your submission archive file MUST be derived from your Testing ID, as shown above. Your Testing ID is your 9-digit Social Security Number (U.S. only), or it might be another alphanumeric combination, e.g. sp1234567 (any country). Your archive filename MUST BE scjda-AAAAAAAAA.ZZZ, where AAAAAAAAA is your Testing ID, and ZZZ is the appropriate filename extension for your archive type (zip, tar, or jar).

If you have prepared your archive, please press the 'Continue' button.
