Congradulation Carl.
Question for you, where did you get the result. Is that from www.galton.com/~sun or somewhere else? I took the exam on July 11. If I am as luck as you, I should get the result by the end of this week.
Thanks.

Which IDE did you use? I only have Textpad, will this suffice? Congrats, btw....and I hope you'll stick around to help out the others (selfish interest, but at least you'll be loved)

Congratualtions!!!
I have a question for you.
in my design, I have a middleware "FlightService" to take care the book process. I used a factory pattern to produce a LocalFlightService and RemoteFlightService to switch the mode. I have to wrote my BookFlight function in two places: Local and Remote. The codes are almost same. only difference is Data in local and RemoteData in the remote server. How can i combine these two functions into one?
Thanks. Could u share more of you design idea?

Tracy,
If you create a Data interface and have both Data and RemoteData implement it then you can use the interface for either type.

Edy, yes I got my result from galton 's web site. I think the reason why I got my result so fast is because I took my exam in Toronto and there are fewer people taking the Developer exam in Canada then the states (just a wild guess)
Chris, I experiemented serveral IDE in this project, Forte, JDeveloer and a small guy JPadPro (just several megs). Before this project, I do not have much experience with IDEs, but this is something you really have to learn I think. No, using textpad is fine but you have to do alot of tweaking for your GUI if there is quite a number of elements in it.
It turns out that the JPadPro gives me the most flexibility in coding. However, since it is too small, it cannot generate any codes for you (such as making a GUI). I make all my GUI with Forte, Forte is a good choice with rich feature I think and I can't really figure out how to use JDeveloper properly to generate GUI.

Tracy, you can do something as Jane has suggested. I have heard alot of people with success using this approach. But the client will have to catch the remote exception in some way. Since I cannot think of a cleanner way of handling this I used an adaptor to handle both the local and the remote mode. When a client calls lock :
method lock(int recNo)
if isRemote
return xx.lock(recNo)
else
return yy.lock(recNo)
Some argue that this approach is clumsy with all the if else statement. But I have thought through it so many times that it is worth it because :
1. if any new connection implementation is introduced (i.e other than RMI and serialized object) only one adaptor class have to be modified
2. Exception handling from client application can be isolated from connection implementation using the adaptor
