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.
I have just downloaded my SCJD assignment. It contains a DB.java interface, which I have to implement. I is provided in the following form:
My question is: can I make changes in this code? More specifically, I do not like that the descriptions are in // comments (not even in multiline comment format). Can I change it to javadoc (/** */) without automatic failure? Or do they compare it with the one in my assignment?
(Making a Javadoc documentation is a must anyway, so I think it should be okay... just to make sure...)
You can change it as long as you don't modify the method signatures, I changed the comments and header information during the javadoc phase of the assignment and I did not get pinged, I think you are supposed to, since you are required to document all source files
