Hi:
To my understanding, the provided codes should be utilized in my program as much as possible. Is this correct?
But what if I utilize them in a way that I break them apart and copy-paste into my program?
I am not doing this for fun. Because I think to use RMI, you have to implement methods through interface.
Thanks.
Don

Hi Don -
What you may not do is break the interfaces that are provided. Check this against the rules of the assignment you received, but I believe you may modify the existing classes. You cannot change their names because of the way your code is tested. Subclassing is also allowed, I'm sure.
In a previous revision of the Exam, you could only subclass the code that was provided, and it was not a fun challenge. You were forced to make some very poor choices, but the point was to justify those choices in the best possible light, not blow them away with new code.
And indeed, that's what leads you to the essay portion. You'll probably have a very narrow set of options in one case or another, and the key is to understand those limits and explain what you did to deal with them. Just like the real world.
