Hello,
I have a couple of question about the assignment. I would appreciate if anybody could kindly offer some suggestions :

1.) I registered last week (no 29th) and downloaded the assignment but it is the old assignment, I emailed SUN but nobody answered. Is this a mistake or they still issue the old assignment. I know it is the old one because there is no binary db file and it is asking me to implement Data Conversion tool. Will the essay exam depend on the new assignment?? I know it does not matter much but I am a little bit worried about it. Should I bug SUN to change my assignment and would they do it?

2.) When displaying the data on the user interface(jtable) what fields do we have to display? All the fields including the number of available seats? In this case do we have to refresh the seat count everytime some other client books seat(s)?
Thank you in advance

First,
I can't give an absolute answer to your first question, but I would expect that your written exam will correspond to your assignment. I've never heard of anyone getting an exam that didn't match their assignment.
As for what fields to display, the interface design is up to you. (It's a design test, after all.) If I were using an online booking app I'd like to see the number of available seats, but that's just my preference. Most people seem to agree that you don't have to update the client when another user books a seat (check your assignment carefully - it probably addresses this question). If a user (based on stale data) attempts to book more seats than are available, however, the system certainly shouldn't let him.
Regarding your user name: If that's your real name, it's pretty cool. If not, please register your real first and last name - see the JavaRanch naming policy for more details.
Thanks,
jply

Thank you for the info. And my nickname is the direct translation of my name into English. So, I guess it is OK to use it that way.

First Light,
I discussed the issue of your user name with the sheriffs and the other moderators, and we eventually decided to ask you to change it. While your user name may be in compliance with the exact letter of the naming policy, it misses our real intent.
We're aiming for a professional environment, so that our forums can be as useful as possible to people at work as well as on their own time. If a name wouldn't be appropriate for use on the job, then it's not appropriate for use on the JavaRanch forums either.
Thanks,
Jerry Pulley

Hi ,
Well, I had the same query posted to Sun. I had downloaded the assignment sometime in the last week of Oct 2000. The reply that I got from Sun was something like this
" If you have been asked to implement a data convertor then you will have to do it. "
It's OK I guess since the Data Convertor is the easiest part of the assignment.
I hope this helps.
With warm regards
Abhijeet
