This week's book giveaway is in the Programmer Certification forum. We're giving away four copies of OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-815 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
Thanks to everyone on the SCJD forum. The forum was my lone source for dialog while I completed the B&S project. There are several issues that I would have addressed differently, probably losing points, had it not been for the insights gleaned from the postings. This is a very helpful, friendly group!
My GUI is a split pane. Subcontractor records are displayed in a JTable in the top pane along with "Broker Controls". A search panel in the bottom pane allows searching field(s) based upon, selectively, either exact-match or begins-with criteria.
I included broker controls for subcontractor add/delete even though the UI for those was not stated in the spec. I figured it wouldn't hurt to add a little extra, and I implemented fairly straightforward interfaces in order to test out the required DBAccess methods.
