Hi,
I'm preparing to submit my assignment, but am still unsure about the README.txt. I am planning to submit my jar file which will inside have client.jar, server.jar, source.jar etc. Now in the readme.txt, we are supposed to include the names of the files submittes with a note of their location and purpose of each.
My question is - do I need to make the contents listing ALL the files (i.e. even the files inside the jar files I included) or is
it enough to list and describe the purpose of the top level directory files. I.e.
Do I need to list which files I included into client.jar etc.?
Thx,
Maja

Go ahead and list each and every file that will be created when all your files are unjarred. It's a pain, but I did get 100% on the documentation part...

Maja,
Do you have db.db in client.jar as well as server.jar ?
Sun mentions that we need to upload the original source code also.
Thanks

Douglas,
- Well, I'm planning to submit executable jar files for client and server and hence I thought, since there won't be any need to extraction of these files, that giving just a high level description of the jars would suffice.
Dilipkumar,
- I haven't decided where to put the db.db file
- I was planning to submit the source.jar as well

Hello,
Perhaps someone here can tell me because you're bound to have figured it out. I wanted make an executable jar and did, so, the problem is that I had the darnedest time (read: I couldn't do it) trying to tell the program where the db.db file was (within my jar...that was the problem) as well as an ImageIcon I employ in my app. How did you handle this? Presumably db.db was inside your jar and you had to tell the app where to find it.
With Respect,
Matt
