Hi, everybody.

My assignment is URLBird.

The assignment is nearly completed, when reviewing the instructions, I find a vital problem that I am likely to deviating the requirement.
In instructions, here is a statement "They take bookings only within 48 hours of the start of room occupancy", a month before, my understanding is that user can book a accommodation with the tiem today, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.

But, now I think the former thought is wrong, the valid time should be only today and tomorrow.

Do you think my thought is right? What meaning is the sentence?

Please give me a idea.

best regards

I really don't think it matters a jot.

Personally I've used 48 hrs from current time to midnight of the date specified. I'm not sure you can really interpret it any other way, but I don't think it would matter if you did.
Further more I don't think it will matter if you don't mention it is choices.txt, but I shan't risk it ;-)

I shall be uploading myself in about 30 mins.

Thank you for repaying!

Maybe this is a vital ploblem, I just describe it on choice.txt is ok.

another question:
I must package all files into a jar file for submissing, but what should I name it?

best regards

Hi: all
I am not very understand this words too.
At the beginning, I am not implement that, but when I read this words, I think my program also has this mistake. the date of db file have been given, so is it useless ? is it necessary to update this field. and how to deal with this field. I am not sure what should I do ?

hi everyone.
I have re-read my instruction. I do not think that it is not necessary to implement that, and need not care that. is it right?

People have received automatic failures for ignoring this requirement. At least one of them successfully appealed and got a pass. I do the following and justify it in my choices document:

- I interpret 48 hours to mean today, tomorrow and the day after. Note that the time field is day only and there is no information about checkin times.

- I do not allow booking for rooms that are not available on those three days. The user is informed.

- I provide a "supervisor" mode that allows the following
--- booking rooms outside the 48 hour rule
--- booking rooms that are already booked.
--- arbitrary updates, creates and deletes.
