I must say this is a great forum.

I just got my score 336/400. Low I realize, but a pass is a pass.

My total time on the project was 3 days (10 hours each day ) over a weekend and 1 extra day finshing documents and packaging it.

I have been coding for a while, and had to take this as part of my job requirements for the company I work for, so I really didn't have too much time to spend going wild.

My Scores:
General Considerations (maximum = 100): 90
Documentation (maximum = 70): 69
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 26
GUI (maximum = 40): 27
Locking (maximum = 80): 44
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

Some Notes:
I know exactly where I lost points in locking, I realized after submitting that I had a few lines of code out of order which could allow for a record to be locked forever in network mode.

GUI - Kept it too simple I guess, In my job I am not a GUI programmer but an algorithm person so no wonder.

Anyhow, I kept it clean and simple, no thrills

Congratulations!

Too bad you could not spend more time on it.
Many of us in this forum have taken this exam as an opportunity to study fields we have little experience in. It was my first time to build a GUI. This made it, although time consuming, a fun and useful experience.
You got your certification so your boss can be happy, but did you learn anything? Did you enjoy working on the assignment? :roll:

That's teriffic. 30 hours is definitely a very low amount, and for people looking to push through, that's good to know. Congratulations!

I will say I had to brush up on RMI a bit for it and that was worth learning to me.

The assignment was ok in general, but again I probably would not have pursued it on my own had it not been asked of me in my current job.
