I submitted my assignment on 11/28 about 2 hours before I took my exam. I tried uploading earlier in the day but I didn't have the rights to upload it yet. I emailed sun and luckily they granted me rights that same day.

I didn't really get a chance to contribute much to this forum but I'll be happy to discuss my design decisions for anyone interested. Thanks to everyone and Good luck.
Summary of design:
-Sockets
-FIFO locking, I did not modify the signatures but to ensure FIFO I had to maintain an id for each client. You actually don't need a client id whether you're using rmi or sockets, unless you're concerned about a client not making the proper sequence of calls to lock, read, modify, and unlock a record. It really depends on who writes the client.
-Modified data and extend it as well only because I delegated the server to handle the locking explicitly.

That's all for now. I have to go to work.

Congrats Marlon. See you at the Web Developer Cert forum.
Still haven't gotten my results. But by the looks of everyone getting their results, it might just be a matter of minutes.

Great job Marlon. Your design is pretty much similar to the way I did it. I used sockets also. I didn't modify any signatures to pass the client id since I used the thread id. The id was used to keep a FIFO ordering of requests. See ya at the SCWCD forum.

Well, it looks more like a matter of days for me. I called Sun Ed, and found out that the place I took the essay exam didn't send in my test till 8 days later. From Nov 25th exam date to arrive at Sun on Dec 3rd. Well, I know I will never take a test at that site again.
