Got my results today after 3 weeks and 2 days. The assignment was Urlybird Version 1.1.3.

General Con: 100 99
Documentation: 70 70
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 33
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 40
Network Server: 40 40
Total: 400 392

I decided to strictly follow the KISS-principle because this was my biggest programming task ever and to be able to manage it alongside my job. The total time spent was the spare time I found during 6 months and full time for 7 days during my summer vacation

I can't thank the SCJD forum enough, I would never been able to get it done without the discussions here. I used the collected knowledge from old threads and that was about all that was needed and I also used Monkhouse and Camerlengos excellent book which was a good companion for certain parts.

The kiss principle is a good one to take, pretty much all the time.

I am a big believer in Occam's Razor. From the wiki:

Occam's razor (sometimes spelled Ockham's razor) is a principle attributed to the 14th-century English logician and Franciscan friar William of Ockham. The principle states that the explanation of any phenomenon should make as few assumptions as possible, eliminating those that make no difference in the observable predictions of the explanatory hypothesis or theory. The principle is often expressed in Latin as the lex parsimoniae ("law of parsimony" or "law of succinctness"):
� entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem, �

which translates to:
� entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity. �

This is often paraphrased as "All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the right one." In other words, when multiple competing theories are equal in other respects, the principle recommends selecting the theory that introduces the fewest assumptions and postulates the fewest entities. It is in this sense that Occam's razor is usually understood.
