Becoz the new downloadable assignment is something like this:
URLyBird is a broker of discount hotel rooms. They sell accomodations for business and pleasure travellers at short notice, helping hotels to fill rooms that would otherwise be left empty. They take bookings only within 48 hours of the start of room occupancy. Curently, URLyBird sells the rooms over the phone using a team of customer service representatives (CSRs). The CSRs interact with an aging custom-written application that has been drawing increasing criticism from the CSRs. In the future, URLyBird wants to move into Internet-based marketing, and hopes to be able to accept bookings direct from customers over the web.
The company's IT director has decided to migrate the existing application to a Java technology based system. Initially, the system will support only the CSRs, although the hope is that this interim step will give them a starting point for migrating the system to the web. The IT director does not anticipate much reuse of the first Java technology system, but intends to use that system as a learning exercise before going on to a web based system.
The company's IT department has a data file that contains the essential information for the company, but because the data must continue to be manipulated for reports using another custom-written application, the new system must reimplement the database code from scratch without altering the data file format.
The new application, using the existing data file format, must allow the CSRs to generate a list of accomodations that match a customer's criteria. This is the project that you have been commissioned to implement.
while it shud be
Fly By Night Services is a small but growing travel agency that provides flight information on a small selection of routes and carriers. The company's IT department recently had an undergraduate student in for work experience during the summer vacation. This undergraduate did some work using the Java programming language and started to produce a rudimentary database system.
The Information Systems Department Manager now wishes to extend this work into a usable application. This application should keep scheduled flight information for a number of airlines and routes, and it should provide a convenient way to search for and book flights that might suit customer's requirements. This is the project that you have been commissioned to complete.
The Current Project Status
At present, a basic data storage and retrieval system (the "database") has been implemented and shown to work by the undergraduate. No network or user level code exists. The database is not relational; it is simply a binary file called "db.db", currently located in the starting/suncertify/db directory of this distribution. This file's format is compatible with the access methods of the Data class.
I am afraid that nobody here may help you :
Be sure to maintain a backup copy of all files related to your project, including the distribution files, until you receive your certificate in case one or more is corrupted, lost, or becomes unusable. You must not use any materials issued to other certification candidates even if you believe they are identical.
I think Andrew got the old Fly By Night Services assignment, so he could probably send it to you, but there are sub-versions of all assignments with slight differences between them, in such a way that you couldn't be sure that the one someone here would send to you would be identical to yours.
What you can do is to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, explain your case, and try to get a copy of your original assignment. But I am unsure you'll get it.
Now a question : how can you post an excerpt of your FBNS assignment if you lost it ?!
Unfortunately Phil is correct - there are at least two different Fly By Night Services assignments that I am aware of, so it would be extremely risky for you to accept someone else's original assignment jar file. If you used something from someone else's file that did not match the file that was originally supplied to you, you could risk being failed even if you had an otherwise perfect solution.
Like Phil I am a bit confused that you are able to provide an extract from your instructions. If you have the files, you do not need the original jar file.
I am going to close this thread.
