Hi
This are the contents of my final submission jar file. Is it ok?
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
submission/docs
submission/docs/userdocs/readme.txt,html
submission/docs/userdocs/design.txt,html
submission/docs/userdocs/index.txt,html
submission/docs/javadoc
submission/executables/FBNServer.jar
submission/executables/FBNClient.jar
submission/executables/db.db ( original db.db )
submission/executables/java.policy
submission/suncertify/suncertify/client/*.java
submission/suncertify/suncertify/db/*.java
submission/suncertify/suncertify/server/*.java
submission/suncertify/suncertify/test/*.java
INSTRUCTIONS.txt ( this contains the basic instructions to unjar the file and look at the contents of the jar file. )
questions:
1) is it necessary to include the compiled classes in the submission jar file?
2) I have included the test package also which contains a test harness which simulates multiple clients for testing purpose. Is it better to include or exclude it. I have not given the instructions to execute the test java files.
Thanks
Ravi

If I remember the instructions correctly, readme.txt must be in the root of your submission jar. And no, don't include your tests.

Yes. I don't think we can expect them to compile your code to run the app. I did include them in my submission.

Hi Sai
Is the compiled code required to run the executable JAR files ?
I thought the executable JARs are sufficient to run the application.
Thanks

If your cient.jar and server.jar already contain all compiled classes, there is no need to include these classes anywhere else in your submission.

Ravi,
Never mind. I didn't know you are submitting executable jar files.
