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.

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

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. =)
