hi:
I am about submitting my assignment, I put all files needed into a jar file named SCJDA-spxxxxxx.jar. Its size is about 500K, is it too large, or too small? What's the best size? :roll:

There is no such thing as a best size, it is what it is. Now yours is fine. Some people have larger ones because of image files they used in the help HTML. some have smaller because they have no images.

I seem to remember a thread a while back about Sun suggesting you keep it below 1MB.

True but I remember a month ago someone sent one that was over 1 Meg and it was fine with Sun. I think they make that suggestion because they find that more often the files that are over 1 Meg tend to not always upload completely.

What's the best size?

The best size is exactly 432K. It ensures the best encapsulation and cohesion of the classes and satisfies all business requirements. I lost 4 points on general considerations, and I am sure that's because my jar size was 4K below the "best" size.

No that was because of your MVC implementation. JK
jar file includes all files you want submit, so yes that includes the HTML.

Hehe, MVC is the stronghold in my rudimentary understanding of the entire J2EE architecture. Scott McNealy himself was so impressed with my MVC implementation, that he put his signature on my developer certificate. :roll:

When you upload, it will tell you how to name your submission. Is that in our FAQ, Mark?
P.S. Yeah, it is, I just checked the FAQ.
