I got my results today and it says I failed:
Comment: Automatic failure. Your GUI does not present search results in a JTable, as required by the instructions: "The main data output section of the user interface should be created using a JTable..."
From my document: Here is snapshot of how my find results look in the find panel.

The find results are encapsulated in a class FBNDataModel. This is then set as the model of JTable.
The query string needs to be typed in and I have instructions for this in the user manual.
So, what am I missing here ?
If I need to appeal, how do I go about doing it ?
Thanks for any response

Well it is true that you have the query results display into a JTable. However, you search criteria area is one big TextField. That in itself, 1. Takes up most of the real estate of the screen, and 2. Is not the way they asked for users to input the criteria string. A JComboBoxes to show the unique values of one field. There could be one for Origin Aiport, one for Destination Airport, and one for Airlines.
Your design is not user friendly. A user will not know how to build a criteria string from scratch.
You can try to appeal, but I think the above breaks a must requirement, which results in automatic failure.
I am sorry that this has happened.
Mark

Hi "R",
Welcome to JavaRanch.
Please note that we have a naming policy here. To make everyone happy, you should display a first and last name. Could you please update your displayed name here.
You may be able to appeal this decision. This sounds like the examiner may have been very harsh with the concept of "main" part of your window being for the JTable (you don't have the "main" part - you have only a section for your table).
However even if you do appeal this particular issue, you may still fail for the other reasons Mark mentioned.
If you want to try appealing, send an email to who2contact@sun.com, giving them as many details as you can about your assignment (candidate number, submission date, anything else you can think that will identify you or the assment) and ask them to review the assessment.
Regards, Andrew

That's really strange: first they failed you on the GUI and then you pass with 0 points deducted from the GUI. You didn't resubmit your program, did you?

Hi Rekha
Congratulations.
Like Eugene I find it strange that they went from "GUI is 100% wrong" to "GUI is 100% correct". :roll:
But you have passed! Congratulations!
I am moving this to the Certification Results forum, so peple can congratulate you there.
Regards, Andrew
