I am finalizing my assignment submission.

Is there any restriction on assignment jar file size? If so, let me know max file size we can send.

My assignment is of size ~3.5 MB, had a doubt whether it is OK to send.

It's a surprise that your file is that big. Mine was 420Kb and included 7 diagrams.

Anyway, there are no restrictions.

Don't worry too much about the size. My JAR file size was 1.7 MB. I had almost 30+ images in my assignment. Just make sure that your diagrams are somewhat clean-break it into smaller pieces(specially sequence diagram).

I have seen on this forum some where that somebody uploaded the jar file of size 2.9 MB and still passed the exam.

Try to reduce the number of colors keeping the resolution same. You can use GIMP and follow this URL:
