Thanks for the all the help on this site. On to the next exam. I had nine points off on the GUI and some off for general considerations and server. I was concerned about the locking/unlocking but it looks like I needed to worry about the GUI more. I used pure RMI and modified instead of subclassing the Data class. One thing I did in the searching mechanism was double check that the items searched for were deleted or not. That wasn't mentioned a lot but a important point. My locking mechanism did not use any client id and just the record number. thanks again! Steven
Steven, Congratulations on passing! I think that you could be a great help to us all if you were to tell us about your GUI interface and why you think that you lost 9 points on it. That way, we might do things differently. Also, please post some of your other design considerations! What are your plans now, SCJA certification?

Here's a couple things that might have been problems: * My column titles weren't compltely displayed w/o resizing. * I used a drop-down to indicate what the booking amount was in order to eliminate the need to parse user number input.
Congrtats I doubt if you lost your points in your column. Mine were not completely displayed either and I did not lose 9 points on GUI. I could of been something else or this in combination with somethig else Trevor [ January 08, 2002: Message edited by: Trevor Dunn ]
Hey Andre, I think I just set the size of the JFrame to be big enough that the grid will display the full names. So in the JFrame do a setSize and experiment till it fits nicely. I also setResizable to false so they couldn't make it smaller and make the columns shrink again.
heya Mark, yeah i was originally trying that out,but i think maybe some of my "schema" column names are too long or something. I thought maybe I read somewhere that you could set the size of the columns or something to fit text size, figured i'd just toss out the notion, see if anybody did that. =) [ January 08, 2002: Message edited by: Andre Mermegas ]
