Hi,
Can you please give me an idea of the topics or subsections which were contained within your design document. How did you actually break the document up and how long was it (pages)? Did the document contain diagrams of any kind?
Please respond.
Thanks,
Chiji

My design document was about 2 1/2 pages broken down into 7 main topics. RMI vs serialized objects, server design, modify vs extending data, exception handling, GUI design, record locking and command line arguments.
I gave a quick overview of how I handled each, some pros and cons and possible future enhancements. I did not inclue any class diagrams. Remember though there is not just one correct way to do it.
