B&S 2.2.2 - Do I have to implement the book function?

Hello there,

I did a little searching and found out that almost everyone had a book option at their GUI for the B&S assignment.
But unless I'm missing something in the following statement, this option is not a requirement.

"What you must do
The following are the "top level" features that must be implemented:

* A client program with a graphical user interface that connects to the database
* A data access system that provides record locking and a flexible search mechanism
* Network server functionality for the database system

The work involves a number of design choices that have to be made. In all such cases, the following principles should be applied."


Also:

"The new application, using the existing data file format, must allow the CSRs to generate a list of constractors that match a customer's criteria. This is the project that you have been commissioned to implement."

From these, I am assuming that only a search option is required. Am I thinking wrong here?
Thanks!

Hi Nicholas, welcome to the Ranch.

Yes you are missing something. The SCJD consists of GUI, Server (sockets or RMI), threading and I/O (Data class). Now I did URLyBird and in my GUI section, I have
The user interface for this assignment must satisfy the following criteria:
* It must be composed exclusively with components from the Java Foundation Classes (Swing components).
* It must allow the user to search the data for all records, or for records where the name and/or location fields exactly match values specified by the user.
* It must present search results in a JTable.
* It must allow the user to book a selected record, updating the database file accordingly.

The last point is indeed a requirement ... well all those points.

If you are in doubt re-read the instructions per each section to determine the architecture. Good luck and of course have fun.

Thanks K. Tsang, I re-read my assignment and saw those exactly words that you quoted.

You should study the instructions.html very carefully.
It doesn't hurt to read it a couple of times.

You'll find that the requirements are not as logically grouped as you would expect.


SCJP 5; SCJD; SCWCD 5.
