I am on the verge of submitting my project. I have checked the code for formatting errors, proper execution, documentation, jar file structure, etc.
Is there anything that you experienced guys/gals recommend I do before I submit it to SUN?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Zak
Give your submission to someone not doing the exam, and if you are doing the old assignment: point them to the instructions file; if you are doing one of the NX assignments tell them the command line to run to start the application.
Then let them go: see if they can follow your instructions on how to setup / use your application. See if they think your application is usable. (Try not to interrupt when they are testing: it is important that you get their ideas about what might be wrong - not they get your ideas (you cant be there for the examiner)).
Also: if possible try running your applications on different architectures. I found that my GUI was great under Linux / Microsoft but had to make a small change to the minimum size of some components for it to display properly under Solaris. Likewise there can be interesting things you may not have thought about if your client is on one machine and the server is on another.
Regards, Andrew
