Your submission did not contain source code as required

The subject is the comment I got from Sun for my J2SD exam submission. But I have the source code packed in a jar file source.jar under the docs directory. Anyone who has passed knows what the comment means? Do I have to keep the source code in the same jar files as the class files? It would be silly to do that because nobody does it in a real world enterprise application deployment. You always want to deploy only the class files to a client machine.
Thank you very much in advance for your response.

I don't know if this is legit or not, but see:

Q. How to upload the assignment?
A. Use Sun Certification Database site to upload your assignment. If you've any problems you can always contact sun educational services at who2contact@central.sun.com.
Important information provided by our member:Vilas Shettigar
"When you have completed your solution, you should build a jar archive. You must build an archive; do not send individual files. The name of your submission archive file MUST be derived from your i.d. as shown here. (Note that in the United States, your i.d. is your 9-digit social security number, e.g. 555443333. Outside the U.S., your i.d. might be 9 digits, or it might be 2 characters followed by 7 digits, e.g. sp1234567.) Your archive filename MUST BE "scjda-AAAAAAAAA.ZZZ", where AAAAAAAAA is your i.d., and ZZZ is the appropriate filename extension for your archive type (zip, tar, or jar).
It is good to know the exact naming convention. All my documentation referred to 'submit.jar' file and I had to change all of it to the desired naming convention just before uploading the assignment.
you have just 15 mins to upload. "

Thanks for your reply. I think I understand what you said. I did put everything inside a jar file following Sun's naming rules. The source.jar I mentioned is a jar file inside the submission jar file. So I don't know what I did wrong. Anyone has any idea?
Thanks.
