In the spec, it says that we need to include the original source and latest source files. Does it suggest that we have to separate them into 2 folders ?
Also, please comment on my final packaging :
- suncertify (folder containing all the class files and their hierarchy)
- documents ( folder containing all the document files and their hierarchy)
- source ( folder containing all the source files and their hierarchy)
- README.txt
- DESIGN_CHOICE.htm
- INSTALL.htm
when the main jar file is unpacked, I advise to examiner to run the application from the suncertify folder only

I created a jar with:
server.jar - just server classes
client.jar - just client classes
shared.jar - shared with both client and server
source.jar - all the source code and java docs
original.jar - exactly what they sent me in entirety
README.txt - the required file
UserDocument.pdf
DesignChoices.pdf

-About the original and latest source, there's no need to separate them. Just place what you call your 'latest' set of source files in the package. This will include those files you haven't modified at all combined with the latest versions of the one's you've changed.
Its better you package your java application as an executable .jar file (see RHE or any other book on how to do this) It's much 'cleaner' and skips all kinds of problems with classpath.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
