Once I purchased an assignment from Sun, will they choose the assignment for me or can I choose it from a number of assignments?

Can someone tell me how it works :roll: ?

Hi Darya,

After you register for the assignment, you will get a message that you can download your assignment somewhere from the web. You will not have a choice in what assignment you will get. Most probably you will get either the Bodgitt&Scarper or the URLyBird assignment.

I did B&S, but from wbat I read on JavaRanch, the URLyBird assignment must be very similar (it has to be of course, otherwise it wouldn't be fair).

The basic technology requirements will be the same for all assignments, the only difference is the business requirements.

For example, B&S is to design a system for contractor booking while URLyBird is to design a system for hotel room booking.
