Who can tell me or give me a confirmation on I can use the XML technology in my assignment or not?
By the way, If I can do it, can I use the package from org, such as org.apache.avalon.framework.configuration.* and the packages existing in the j2sdk1.4.1.
Thank you!

Hi,
no for the current version of the assignment you cant use 1.4 features of j2sdk
for the beta exam i don't know but for the current exam assignment am sure that you cant use logging or xml features etc which is available for you in the 1.4 version of j2sdk kit ..i had a similar kind of question and i asked here and wrote to sun .. and got specific advice not to use 1.4 specific features and to follow the instructions given to me.
unfortunately i forgot where i put a copy of the mail i received ..
hope this helps ...
cheers,
parthi

Well, sure you can use XML. You just have to code your own XML parser as you're not allowed to require any 3rd party libraries like Xerces etc.

In the current version of the assignment, using XML would be overkill and not really needed. It is easy enough to get your data to the client side without the extra code.
In the Beta, you could use XML, but still think it is a little overkill for this simple application.

Yeah, and you can also use an EJB (you just have to write your own EJB container), and you can use a relational database (you just have to write your own version of Oracle).
