Wrote wrong package name in a couple of plces.
Real package name - suncertify.clientlogic (suncertify.clientlogic.search)
I wrote - suncertify.client (suncertify.client.search)

What do you think? Is it serious?

Oh My God! The world is going to end now.

Sorry for that.

You should still be fine, as long as the other answers demonstrate that you did your own work.

It is just a typo error of your package name. I feel that it is quite insignificant, a developer don't usually go and remember every single full name of his classes, maybe just something vague, further more he will have his api documentations. So I guess if you describe your system functionalities correctly and your design choices correctly, you should be fine.

Rgds,

There were about 10 packages in my project. Their names and structure had been changed all the time. So it seems to me that I used unconsciously one of package working name not remembering exactly the last package name.

I do agree that documents (or essay exam) sometimes will be wrongly written, even not for the exam, however, due to the exam purposes, we'd better memorized most of the stuffs, and make them correcy.

Just like other SUN's exams. Some required us to remember the name of APIs, or super class names. You can also argue that we can read Javadoc when we are developing applications, however, that's the exam requirements.

Anyway, I guess you wont lose too much marks even being markdown, as this is just a minor mistakes.

Dont worried.

I guess only a few marks will be deduced in the worst case.
