(1) Is logging required even though not explicitly mentioned in the instructions? If so, logging on server AND client side is necessary?
(2) My instructions: You must provide basic user documentation...This documentation must be in one of these three formats:
* HTML * Plain text (not a wordprocessor format) * Within the application as a help system.
All the gui examples presented here have the user documentation within the application as a help system. Would it be bad style to just add a plain text file realizing the 2cnd possible choice. So the gui would remain without any file menu.
2) Kasper, the guy that got 100% (400/400), had a txt file, so I don't think that would be a problem.
As for 1), I don't know. There are NO requirements for logging so I'm not doing it. After reading Kasper's (very good) description, I'm just doing the "musts" and nothing more...but then I'm only going to send my assignment in next week...
As Brian has stated logging isn't a requirement of the project, however I would recommend using logging and have found it very useful for debugging/testing the application, especially in the Data class for locking etc.
I don't think you will lose any marks for adding logging as long as it doesn't impact the readablity of the code.

Hi thanks for your response. I decided to use logging.
Problem now it doesn't only log to a file but also the console. I ve no idea how to turn console logging off. I tried to remove all Hanlders but there aren't any.
