How elaborate should choices.txt be?

Hey guys,

I'm working on my choices.txt as I develop my SCJD assignment and I was wondering how elaborate I should explain my choices. As an example, I use the room record index as recNo. Which could be described in choices.txt as :

- I use the room record index in the database file as recNo.

or

- I use the room record index in the database file as recNo. This will obviously be a unique identifier for room records. I dont consider the fact that rooms that are created by reusing disk space of previously deleted records will end up with the same recNo of previously deleted records a problem.

If I go for the latter option my choices.txt will end up being multiple pages, and I have the feeling when people will mark assignments they prefer a less is more approach.

Any comments?

Hi,

I'm not yet at this point, however, there is several other post about this.

In those posts, I've read few time that choices.txt should be a "one pager".. or close to that.

Just search for "choices.txt".

bye,
Alex
