Congrats Max good show
I have also completed my assignment but am stuck at 2-3 points -
could you pls help
1. I have not used any patterns as I never felt the need for any - which patterns according to you are absolutely necessary ??
2. What have you provided in the GUI menubar?? Is it needed at all?
3. Apart from Javadocs have you provided anyother help ( except for running instructions)??
Any other comment would be highly appreciated
All the best
Max Tomlinson

I used the adapter pattern for the data servers. (I had a local and remote data server which both implemented the same interface). I thinka lot of people do that. I also used a singleton factory pattern for instantiation of databases but this might have been overkill.
For the GUI, I had two menu items, one for a simple 'exit', the other for 'help' (which was meant to be my user documentation), but since I only got 14/20 for documentation this may not be the way to go.
hope this helps,
