My assignment instructions say "All elements of your submission must be packaged into a single JAR file for submission. It is permitted to nest JAR files inside the main JAR." Here is how I approach the objective for jar. I have a directory structure like this : JavaDevExam - Readme.txt - Design.txt JavaDevExam\client - client.jar - db.db - *.gif - clientHelp.html JavaDevExam\server - server.jar - db.db - *.gif - serverHelp.html - policy file JavaDevExam\source Just an empty directory JavaDevExam\source\suncertify All the latest source code for the assignment JavaDevExam\source\doc Javadoc htmls.
What do you guys think (especially one who are already SCJDs) ?. Few questions: 1. I have to submit one jar, so I will be jarring all these in to a jar, how will I provide the marker the unjar instructions ? as readme.txt is a part of the �big� jar.
You don't need to include directions on how to unjar a jar file. So you need to be sure that any directory they will unjar the file from will work. Your layout looks fine, just test to make sure everything works before you upload. Take your jar file to another machine and unjar it and test your app. Mark
Mark- README.txt needs to have the names of the files you have submitted, with a note of their location in the directory structure, and a high level description of the purpose of each. Does this mean that I need to list and document even the java source files, class files and also javadoc files for each of the classes ?
Mark - This means that the README.txt file will be a lenghty one. I have 400 files including javadoc files, java source files and java class files. Is that how oyu had it ?. Please let me know. Thanks, -Rajesh
