Hi,
In the assignment document , emphasis has been put on
Portions of your submission will be analyzed by software
Any guidelines on which portions or what software will be used for evaluation ?
Anyone with experience of having passed or failed this automatic test ?

regards

I'm under the impression that they have their own code, which will attempt to execute against the interface.

Thanks Max.
Do you mean /know if it's just for the interface
supplied with the documentation ?
It sounds like they will take bits out and test them independently, as you would do in Unit Testing. Test first then design for as many test scenarios as possible.
Performance is still not a requirement, I believe. i.e simple rather than clever code.
So we can rule out optimal performance-checking software !(?)
There are restrictions on the command line and all configuration is to be done via properties.( I like these 2 , as it allows less room for human (examiner) error).
Can't spot any other possibile areas for analyzing software.

Not sure either way: however, I'm not even sure they're doing this: I think that it might just have been a 'good idea' when the test was being designed. For example, they'd have to extracts your stubs to do remote testing, etc. It's more headache then it might be worth.
Nevertheless, simple is better, methinks, so don't worry overmuch about speediness.
