Would it be a problem if the submitted JAR file contains more files than requested. For instance, I have been using Ant and I was wondering if I should include the build.xml and build.properties files into the submitted JAR file...
Has anyone had the same problem?
Thanks

But Valentin, Sun does not allow third party solutions to be referred, AFAIK.

I would keep any helping apps that you are using out of the submission jar. The submission jar should have your code, javadoc, readme.txt, design.txt and the application and that is all. I think that is all, did I forget anything.

Thanks, I won't add my Ant files then
Mark,
my assignment does not mention a file called design.txt anywhere... I have a file named choices.txt where design choices are to be discussed but nothing like design.txt. readme.txt is not mentioned as well, but I included one just in case...
Did I miss something?

Same thing, it doesn't matter how you name the design choices document, as long as it is there.

readme.txt is not mentioned as well, but I included one just in case...

Re-read your instructions carefully, -- I believe we all get the same assignment, and I would be very surprised if your assignment doesn't ask for README.txt.

Valentin you are probably taking the beta exam like I am and the choices.txt is what I would use because that's what the requirment says. Those guys are probably taking the current exam.
Eugen you forgot to ...... because all other posts are.

Eugene,
I'm not sure about everybody getting the same requirements. I think folks mentioned something about hotels in another thread so unless that was for the current exam, there are at least two versions of the beta. I got the contractors version (B&S).
As for the design choices, it is a must in my requirements to name the file "choices.txt" and there is no mention of readme.txt, although I'm now inclined to include one anyway.
Valentin, don't forget your version.txt

I'm sorry it wasn't clear that I was talking about the beta exam

I included one readme.txt, too, just in case
Valentin, don't forget your version.txt
To be honest, that's the first file I wrote a month ago, because it was the easiest

Oh, I didn't realize that. Maybe this forum shouldbe split in two, -- the old exam and the beta exams. Otherwise there will be confusion all the time about the exam requirements.

I had actually asked for a forum to be created on the test server. However the ISP had to use this server and we can't get to it right now.
So we are stuck with using this forum for both exams. I think all threads titles should start with Beta, so we don't get them confused with everyone else taking the regular exam.
