Hi,
one question especially to those who have passed their SCJD: I am somewhat afraid that I overdo with the GUI functionality.
Although the instructions did not explicitly mention it, I have added functionality for the following operations (besides finding and booking):
  • adding a record
  • modifying a record
  • saving the modified record
  • deleting a record
  • reloading a record

  • I have done some effort to keep users from inadvertantly losing their changes (i.e., popping up JOptionPanes), and by enabling/disabling the buttons.
    Meanwhile I ask myself whether all this is really required.
    Any comment is welcome!

    I can't say what they will do to you for adding all of that... sounds neat to me. But all that I did was three combo boxs for searching, a jtable for the data, a popup with a textfield for booking and a menubar and toolbar for easy access to functions. I only missed one point and they do not tell you why .

    Hi Nate,
    which functions exactly did you implement? With one point off I could do well.
