Quite a newbie question, but it's my second day of preparing to SCJD.

SCJP 1.4 - 88%
SCBCD 5.0 - 90%
SCEA - 81%

URLyBird is a broker of discount hotel rooms.

There are some different projects for SCJD: URLyBird, Fly By Night and etc.
All of them have almost the same task: Show data in the JTable, Search functionality, Networking (RMI or Sockets). But some task can be different.
Your assignment will have only two following files: instructions.html and Database file.
All that you need to do will be described in instructions.
All of these instructions have one Interface. This can be different for versions or for projects, but has the same functionality: lock/unlock record � for locking/ulocking, read � for reading the records, find- find some records with criteria, delete � delete records, update � update records. The arguments and return values in this method can also be different, for example:

Hope that will help you.
