I have used IBM Visual Age for Java for the GUI creation and as some of you may already know it creates lots of methods and it will take a lot of time to document these methods (which come with default documnetation anyway). Also the naming standard of visual age does not even come close to what I have otherwise. Have anybody had marks taken away because you submitted with the code generated by the IDE ?. Please help me on this front.
Thanks,
-Rajesh

I did not use an IDE specifically for this reason. They include many methods, and coding standards that do not follow the SCJD expectations, or needs. They also tend to include proprietary classes.
Unfortunately I would suggest re-writing the GUI without the IDE. It might take you an extra week, but you will learn more about Swing than you did with using the IDE.
And as the requirements of the Assignment, it states that a junior level programmer should be able to understand the code, and it must follow standard naming conventions. From this I will guarantee you will lose points because of this.

Thanks Mark. I have already started converting the code. You are right, I also had the same feeling about inconstistencies.
Thanks,
