Score: 390

Con: 100 90
Documentation: 70 70
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 40
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 40
Network Server: 40 40
Total: 400 390

special thanks to all ranchers for all your help!

there is nothing too special about my design, but i would like to clear up some confussions

1) I extended DB interface
2) my GUI design appear to be different than most other ranchers, if you wonder how it looks, just click the search button on you IE window. Yes, all my control buttons are lined up on the tool/menu bar.
3) my GUI does not include a AND/OR dropdown
4) my cookie values are randomly generated (why do they need to be unique?)
5) used hand-shake pattern to manage my threads

Congrats Frank!

Which materials did you use and how much time it took you to prepare for it?

Yeah indeed excellent score. Your locking rocks. I have notice you have cookie in your assignment. If possible can you post your test code? In my URLyBird assignment has cookies and it will help to test my Data.class against your proven test code. I have done lot of test against Data.class for locking and results are encouraging. It is okay to post test code in forum.

Thanks,
Ken

the book i like the most is called "Effective Java" by Joshua Bloch. (the book is thin, only has about 200 pages). I think this book is a must-have if you want to score high on SCJD.

I also bought a copy of Andrew's book, which is think is decent. it gives readers a good overview for the project(even has a chapter on how you build the jar file and package your submission). I borrowed his hand-shake locking mechanism.

since this test does not have a time limit so you don't need to prepare!!
