The size of my jar file with just the sequence diagram alone is coming to 600KB. In the assignment instructions, Sun says to have the file size between 200k and 400k. How did you guys do it? Sun suggests "optimizing the graphics"... Did you do that? If yes, can you suggest some softwares. Or did you use some other technique.
I am using StarUML. I use the "export the diagram" feature to create jpegs.
Even when using png the size of my jar was too big.
I used IrfanView to do a "convert to grayscale" on the png color images. That reduced the size of my jar almost by half.
The total size of my upload jar was about 700KB.

For current version, I think no. but I heard that there is a size limit in an old version of SCEA. I think it's a strange restriction, B&W images will be smaller than colored images anyway but that doesn't mean B&W images are anything better.
