I am reading the last bit of the instructions, and they state that I should have a directory called code, "containing all the source code and related parts of your project." I understand they want my .java source code, but what exactly might they mean by the last part "and related parts"?
I am noticing now, too, that the instructions don't say anything about placing the .properties file in the final jar. However, they do say, "All configuration must be done via a GUI, and must be persistent between runs of the program. Such configuration information must be stored in a file called suncertify.properties which must be located in the current working directory." That led to me to believe it should be included in the final jar at the same level as the runme.jar. However, they don't say anything about it in the deliverables section. Am I missing something?
No need to add the file to the runme.jar (otherwise you would have a lot of trouble to try to save changes to this file in the jar). The 1st time no file exists, so you'll create this properties file (with the data entered by the user) and the 2nd time you'll use the created file to retrieve the necessary information. When the user makes a change, you update the appropriate line in the file with the new value.

So long as I pass on the the first try I won't be missing any $$.
