I'm not quite sure how will the assessor test our programs in remote mode.
In the requirement, it specifically asked for a SWING client but didn't mention for the server. I also want to include a simple SWING dialog for server logon but what if the assessor run the server.jar on a separate unix machine....where SWING is not supported. Do I need to worry about this??

Hi CyJenny,

I used swing on my server. The server GUI had a menu, a text area for server status logging and error messages, and buttons to start and stop the server. Swing must be supported in Java 2, so that is not an issue.
Hope this helps,

I don't know how they do the examinination, but that's how I would do it:
1. - I would have a look at the GUI and click around a little bit.
2. - I would start my automated test facility for the classes of the assignment and let it run.
I assume they will use automated testing because in the instructions they insist that the client-side proxy has the same interface as the supplied data class.
