I downloaded my assignment just yesterday and now analysing the requirements. I have following doubts :
- in the instructions I got from SUN, they very specifically mention that the solution must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of Sun's Java 2 platform. What does this exactly mean ?
- Do I have to download the latest JDK. I have JDK 1.2
- Does it make any difference if I develop and test my solution on Windows NT or Unix ?
- Do I need to implement search based on all (there are 9 of them) fields in the database ?
- Why even I need add and delete method in the 'Data' class ? User is never going to add or delete a record ?
- How do I test remote client ? actually executing my program from another machine or simulate two VM's in same machine ?
I would very much appreciate your reply and thanks in advance.

A) It means you should not use any Beta version of JDK, have to use only release versions - you can use either 1.2 or 1.3 version of JDK.
- Does it make any difference if I develop and test my solution on Windows NT or Unix ?
A) Development on a specific OS is not an issue, use which ever is most covenant for you. But it is always suggested that, you should test your application on all (eg Windows, UNIX, LINUX platform. (- in my case I have developed and tested my APP on WIN2K, I don�t have access to UNIX, so I did not bothered testing on UNIX or on LINUX)
- Do I need to implement search based on all (there are 9 of them) fields in the database ?
A) Use generalized searching algorithms, if you search in this group, you can find most answers for you questions
- Why even I need add and delete method in the 'Data' class ? User is never going to add or delete a record ?
- How do I test remote client ? actually executing my program from another machine or simulate two VM's in same machine ?
A) I have simulated two VM on the same machine.
I would very much appreciate your reply and thanks in advance.

I hope above will help you

Thanks very much for your reply. Regarding search, the code can be made generic to handle search based on any field, but my question is do you actually display nine different fields to read user input values for these fields ? Also, where do you think add and delete methods in the 'Data' class have to be used ?
