Not sure why I lost points, but here's my best guesses:
Documentation (2 points): In-line code documentation was a little light. Javadoc sometimes only had one line comment for simple methods and didn't have @return, @param...etc.
GUI (1 point): Did not prevent multiple "search" button presses. No "Please Wait" type of message.
Server/General Considerations (2/1 points): Not sure, but maybe I wasn't concerned enough about performance.
I guess probably the biggest mistake I made was to set the essay test date to force myself to finish the project. I ending up having to rush and probably could have squeezed out a few more points if I put the assignment away for a couple weeks, and then reworked a few things. But then again, maybe I would never really feel like I was finished.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Maybe a bigger problem with the GUI was there was about two pages of code repeated for both the client and server that probably should have been factored out and shared.

Robin, did you use the default properties for each of your swing component?
Now I didn't set Look&Feel, and didn't set any font and color properties for swing components, I am not sure if it is OK?
