Automatic Failure: Assessor Comments: Submission fails because it does not meet the Assignment Specifications. The application allows users to book hotel rooms for any date in the future, even months before the reservation date. This violates the requirement that users may "take bookings only within 48 hours of the start of room occupancy" and so, the application is incomplete. The application partially meets this requirement, it does block bookings for past dates.
They take bookings only within 48 hours of the start of room

Automatic Failure to be precise.

Apparently even the Sun Educational services' assignment marker are not very clear on the requirements either

To me when I read that specs I thought it meant 48 hours and higher. Meaning you can't book the night before, you have to book in the future. That is how it sounds to me.
So some hotel chain is not going to take your booking because it is next week? That sounds ridiculous.
Q1. Are there any requirements that do not include the word "must"? Are there any requirements not marked by "must" that could lead to automatic failure?
A1. If your document contains an instruction that doesn't say "must" then you may lose points for not following that instruction, but you will not fail automatically.
Q2. I assumed that the 48 hours business rule was not a requirement. Is this okay or can it lead to failure if I do not address it?
A2. Yes, this is ok. That part of the instructions is a bit vague, so you have flexibility in how you interpret it.
Q3. In the choices.txt it says I should describe the significant design choices I made. I think it is significant why I am laying out my GUI the way I am doing it, why I chose RMI, how I bypassed networking in the stand-alone mode, etc. What happens if there is something that I felt was not worth mentioning, but you expected a description?
A3. If your choices.txt file explains only the issues you mentioned above, that will be fine.
