Hi all,

just got my results through, here's the breakdown:

General Con: 92
Documentation: 70
OOD: 30
GUI: 31
Locking: 80
Data Store: 40
Network Server: 40
Total: 383 (96%)

I'm a little surprised at the GUI - I felt I nailed the whole MVC and and dependancy issues, but there you go - do you find out "why" you were given a particular score?

My solution was RMI based. My locking was very simple. For my data store I did provide a fully featured DAO even though the GUI didnt use all of it. My documentation was HTML with screenshots (it looked quite professional). My choices document was quite detailed.

I've been doing the project on and off for 2 years. I scrapped my first attempt and did it in 3 large chunks of about 2 months each. It was a lot of work, but also enjoyable. My evenings are empty now! :-D

Thanks to everyone that read and replied to my many posts.

See you in the next forum :-)

Hahah, I know how it feels! Now that I'm done with the project, I'm reading EJB 3 In Action, already preparing myself for the SCBCD. Still didn't take the essay exam though.
Unfortunately, you don't get to know why you got each score in each particular criteria
By the way, congrats partner!

Cheers, Bob "John Lennon" Perillo
