1)in readme,the instruction say"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. "

2)in my upload jar ,i need include the jar which contain the original file?
3)when i can take essay exam?after i upload my assignment or wait the sun guys information.

Hi Robin,
I think you are not supposed to describe all your .java and .class files. I'm planning to upload executable .jars, one for the client, one for the server, and two directories with the sources and with the classes.
As far as I understood the instructions, the README is supposed to tell the examiner where s/he finds what and how to start your application, e.g. which command-line arguments are required.

Hi Robin,

1)in readme,the instruction say"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 i need list and describe all the files in my upload jar?this really a crazy job!

I listed every file in the jar. It was a pain in the posterior (really crazy job) but was not overly difficult to do. I just used a batch file to generate a text file and then edited that text file. A better approach would be to write a simple java program to do it an properly format the output at the same time.

2)in my upload jar ,i need include the jar which contain the original file?

No. You do need to include all of the original files though. I had a directory named "source" with two subdirectories "original" and "release". I put an exact copy of the files in the assignment jar into the "original" subdirectory.

3)when i can take essay exam?after i upload my assignment or wait the sun guys information.

Upload your assignment first, then take the essay exam. You need to take the exam as soon as possible so that your design is fresh in your mind.
Hope this helps,
Michael Morris
