Greetings,
I am not able to figure out what is supposed to happen when the user books a seat.
Is it supposed to update the database file or just update the in-memory data?
The only thing I could find in the instructions was:
"The user must be able to book one or more seats on a chosen flight. If the flight cannot provide those seats, the user must be informed. It is not necessary to provide for live updates on multiple clients when new bookings are made at other clients."
It does not say whether the data must be written back to the file or only the in-memory data should be updated.
Another question: should the system allow the user to add new flights, that is, specify an origin, destination, flight number, etc?
I couldn't find any such requirement in the instructions. So am I missing something?
Thanks.

What they mean is that if User A books a flight, User B's front-end does not need to be refreshed with the new data that A changed. But yes you do need to update the db.db file when a booking occurs.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
