Hope this helps,

Unfortunately, you won't get the opportunity to choose which assignment you do. You will just be given one of the assignments and you'll find out which one you got when you download the assignment instructions.
It seems that most people lately have been getting the Bodgitt & Scarper contractor assignment, which is a database application that allows the user to search for building contractors and book (reserve) the services of a particular contractor for a customer. Another current assignment is the URLyBird hotel reservation assignment, which is a database application that allows the user to search for and book (reserve) hotel rooms. You should get the impression from this that the assignments are all basically the same although the details differ. I don't think any of the assignments are more difficult than any of the others, but they all have their particular challanges. A lot of the issues are very similar and people can benefit from advice given by people who have different assignments. Also the assignments themselves have different versions. So, B&S has a number of different versions that have differences in the Sun-supplied interface, for example. The different versions of an assignment may also have different Sun-supplied database files.
There are still people working on one of the old assignments, Fly By Night, which I think was a database application that allowed the user to book (reserve) airline flights. Because candidates have a year to complete the project there are a number of different assignments that are being worked on at any one time. However, these three, B&S, URLyBird, and FBN, are the only ones of which I am aware.
Hope this helps,
George

Hi Ljk,
Welcome to JavaRanch.
We don't have many rules here, but one we do have is the JavaRanch Official Policy on Displayed Names. According to that policy your displayed name should be a real name. Could you please update your profile to display your real name? You can change it here
You may want to read the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ particularly the questions relating to what assignments there are, and what has changed in the assignments.
Regards, Andrew
