Is my assumption regarding this is correct.We have to provide a GUI to enter the details such as name,location,specialties,rate,size,owner.
Since it has been mentioned that reusing a deleted entry i had assumed the following implementation
And when the user clicks on the "Create " button we must search for the already deleted record(marked withe the deleted flag) and then replace all those fields with the currently given fields.Is this correct?If there are any other assumptions please let me know
As far as i know it is not required to implement the UI for createRecord. If your requirement indicates that this implementation is must, you must provide the UI. Otherwise it would be an extra work and also you will not get any extra score for this implementation. I would suggest you to provide the implementation in your server for all methods defined in DBAccess interface. Your implementation will be helpful if anyone wants to provide the UI for other methods in future ;)
There are two ways to create a new record. The simply one is to add the new record (with the new record number) at the bottom of the database. The second one is to reuse the deleted record number. Check your SUN requirement, if it is not a must to reuse the deleted record, then the first solution is straightaway.
