Hi,
I understand that everybody is different.
When it comes time to do the programming assignment, some may already know a large chunk of what has to be done, so the staff that's left to do is to understand the assignment and jump to design. Others may have to go back to the book and learn on the RMI and Swing.
Now, assuming that you do know a large chunk of the technology that is required to address the problem, how much time did you spend on the design, implementation, and documentation?
Was it one day (I wish ), a week, two months? I am just looking for a ball-park figure.
Appreciate your help.

Bah, I paid $250 for the assignment so I'm pretty sure I don't want it to be over in one month, let alone one week, or one day!

I would say 300 hours is a good estimate.

if you know classpath perfectly, know about stubs and skeletons with RMI, how to jar perfectly, then you can probably finish the assignment in a week. BUT...one little detail can bog you down for a month and you could spend all your time trying to figure it and you wont, until of course you get help from someone else, because sometimes you get to a point where you just can go on without someone's help. But I guess that's why we are all here to help each other.

I've been working on mine since mid-February but since I have a full-time job, a family, and other interests, I can only put in about 10-20 hours a week on average. How soon you get done will greatly depend on how much dedicated time you can devote to the assignment and also how much time you have to spend researching any part of the project that you don't have a ready answer for.
