Hi there

Finally, I am ready to upload my assignment and of course I am facing the historical upload rights problem.
The silly thing is that I didn't buy the voucher for the essay exam yet! I don't think it's a problem though. I plan to buy it sometime this week. Does the policy allow me to upload the assignment before buying the voucher for the essay exam? God I am trying to catch up with the March 29 deadline please help.

Thanx

I think you can upload the assignment before you have the voucher.

I have one question for you: what is that deadline you're talking about?

By the date, he is using SDK 1.4.2, which is valid up to March 29, 2006. After date date only JDK 1.5 will be accepted... right?

Yes, after 3/29/2006, you must use 1.5.
I'm almost ready to do the upload myself and was hoping for a fast turnaround after the written exam (dying to put this on my resume ). I'm using 1.5 so the date doesn't mean anthing to me. But with this deadline, looks like there may be a spike in submissions.

It only means that your app. should be able to compile/run on jdk 1.5? Or should it also implement it features?

The program must fully compile in the new JDK, but also some other things must be noticed.
Maybe you will have problems if you implemented something that is not available in 1.4.2 but is a new feature in 1.5. For example, I'm using a Queue. If I implemented it myself, I could lose points in 1.5.

I'm using a queue in my locking mechanism, well I call it a queue, but it doesnt look like Sun's queue

I'm almost done, gonna try to upload it this month, but if not, do I need to implement things like for example generics?

So far, I am using it internally in my data layer. It holds the record id's of the deleted records of the file. So when I create a new record and I need to find out the record number, I do:



Doing so allows the create method to fail and the queue not to loose the unused ID. Well, I think it is a bit more than that, but I think you get the idea.
