Dreamcar Assignment Questions

Hi Friends,

In one of the use cases of the assignment, it says "Dreamcar representative searches for CLOSED bid requests" to review in order to issue a PO to winning bid.

What makes a bid request "CLOSED" from its initial "OPEN" status?

Also, in one of the use cases when dreamcar representative inputs a part category and quantity, "system responds with a validation". What kind of validation is required here?

I don't think, you can ask these specific questions in the forum and anybody would like to answer but I would say, make assumptions and document them. Some of your questions will automatically be answered as you progress with the assignment.

BTW, I feel that this is really a great assignment to do. If analyzed properly, the whole world of Java technologies/patterns can be implemented in specific scenarios and at the same time the solution can be implemented with very simple technologies as well -

Good luck!

Rajan is correct. This is too specific. I'm closing this thread to prevent further discussion.
