Hi,
I downloaded assignment and started working on it.
I have this one question.
I normallly use "ant" (Apache's jakarta project) to build my sources. So i moved suncertify directory to src/suncertify and created classes directory so that i can point my classes to "classes" directory. i felt as application grows, using ant would help.
Can we use this during development and when we upload the assignment, just give jars out of the build by ant?

Using Ant is OK. Actually since I just read an article on Ant, last night, I would suggest using Ant for anything. I had a bat file which works the same, but I had to write it knowing bat commands and had to debug. whereas Ant has the nice XML that is easy to understand and use.

I've used Ant a lot and really like it. It does have a couple of bugs you have to watch out for. I haven't tried the latest Ant release, so these might have been fixed:
- running out of memory when copying or doing a crlf fix on large files
- crashing when opening and closing a lot of database connections, even if you only have 1 connection open at a time.
