I just submitted my assignment two days ago, and I'm about to take the follow-up test tomorrow. I think I made two mistakes in my README.txt file. The first was that I listed two files 'client.jar' and 'server.jar' as simply containing all class files and resources necessary to execute the client and server respectively. I did not list the files in the archives. However, I did list every source file or documentation file with an explanation.
The second mistake I think mades was to give instructions on how to start the client and server in terms of starting the VM and providing classpaths, etc. For the client app I did not give instructions on how to connect to the server in the README.txt file. I thought they'd refer to the client help documentation for that or would know to press the big connect button.
I'm not sure what to do. Is this going to be a problem? Should I simply correct the errors and resubmit. Or should I wait to see what they say?

This is fine

Did you provide any instructions on how to start the client app from the command line (i.e. policy file) in the README.txt?
If not, then you should probably re-upload. You are allowed to upload as many times as you want until you take the written exam. They told me in an email that you must do the upload before you take the written test

Thanks for your help. I did put in command line instructions to start the client and server. I wasn't able to upload again. Sun forbade it.
