It looks like the locking cost you more than enough points to fail. You should review the many threads on this forum that discuss locking. If you gave us a summary of how you implemented the locking section, someone should be able to assist.

Did you use the wait and notifyAll methods in your locking code?

Hi Kishore,

I believe you cannot appeal this case.

In the cases where people have appealed in the past, they had received automatic failures for an area they believed was either not an automatic failure condition, or that they believed that they had met. It is only when there is an automatic failure that the examiner will give any comments.

In your case, you did pass the "automatic failures" criteria, however as Peter commented, you lost too many points in your locking code. So you really need to review that part of your code before you can go further.

Regards, Andrew

Hi:Laxmi
Could you show your lock/unlock code here?

Hi Yanxin,

Kishore cannot post his entire locking code here, as this goes against the rules of this forum. From the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ:


...
But we will not allow posting major parts of a solution. For example, you may not post your entire code for locking and unlocking records - this is a major section (currently worth 20% of the assignment) and sections of such code will be removed from any post. Posting just one method (e.g. the lock() method is usually considered reasonable).


Regards, Andrew
