I see a lot of threads mentionning the readme file.
Readme file is suuppose to describe th elist of filesin the jar.
My assignment does not mention any readme file. It says that I must provide a userguide.txt file containing a user documentation for the database and the server. I have choice.txt and version.txt files.
But no mention of a readme file?
Is it some thing that must be done as good practice, should I provide a readme file anyway or is it the same file as the userguide.txt?
Cna you help me with this.
Thank you
- Lydie

Hi Lydie,

The Fly By Night Services assignment required a README.txt file (not my choice in capitalization :roll: ). The URLyBird and Bodgit & Scarper assignments do not need this file.

The contents of the README.txt file are almost all irrelevant for the new assignments. In it we had to specify how to start the application (the new assignments must be in an executable jar file), specified where the various files were located (they are now explicitly located as specified in the instructions) and so on.

In other words - since your assignment instructions do not require you to provide this file, don't worry about it.

Regards, Andrew
