Hi All,

I already submitted assignment and coming Monday I will be giving essay exam.

But know when I am preparing for essay exam I read sun instruction again

"You must provide all classes pre-installed so that no dynamic class downloading occurs. "


i know that from Java 5 there is no need to generate stubs explicit, but
the requirements say:
"You must provide all classes pre-installed so that no dynamic class downloading occurs."

I used jdk 5 and that I specified in version.txt

I did not generated my stubs (somehow I forgot even it was must requiremnet) and i did not explain in my choices.txt
but that I will expalin in my essay exam .

will Sun fail me since it was must requirement



i will take care in essay exam this thing

i am very much worried.



Regards,
Pramod

Howdy, Pramod!

I did not generated my stubs...


Well, me neither

Even though the instructions say that all classes must be pre-installed, I didn't generate them and mentioned it in my essay exam, and didn't fail.
Everybody generates them before submitting the assignment. Now we'll see if I just got lucky, or if it isn't really necessary anymore!

Thanks to my great Ant-script

Now submitting an assignment developed in JDK 5 won't be a real problem I guess, because very few changes between JDK 5 and JDK 6. But it should be JDK 6. Instructions are very clear about that:
You may develop your code using any implementation of the Java 2 platform, but the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.

But you won't fail for it, because it will certainly work under JDK 6.

Kind regards,
Roel

The way I read it, it is a must requirement, but you may get away with it....

Hi,

My application still works in JDK 6 but for development I used JDK 5 and specified JDK 5 in version.txt

so now Sun will fail me

since

Throughout this exercise, you must use exclusively the Java 2 platform. You may develop your code using any implementation of the Java 2 platform, but the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.





getting worried too much

JDK 5 should do...

I don't know about this.

I guess this 'shown to work' is up to the assessor, while he/she is testing your work. Your assignment should work fine using JDK 6...
