Hi,
I am packing my jar and pass the essay tomorrow.
About the jar what are the conventions:
Is it better that unjarring extracts all in a directory that has the the name of the jar, or is it better to extract all in the directory where the jar is?
Thanks
C.

I know that I hate lousy archive files which doesn't unpack in their own, created by themselves directory, but instead spread their files around in my directory which already happens to have lots of files. But that is only my own opinion, and I would suggest also listen to some more experienced one in this area.

I'd planned to send a single jar containing the main application jars and readme at its root -- with instructions to expand the overall jar wherever desired. all items within are (hopefully) relative.
Does anyone think this is not the best approach?
