Folks who have completed SCJD,
I am just little curious whether any mark would be deducted for using code/design from Monkhouse. Our project is supposed to be our original material. The monkhouse book offers most of the designs, explaination for the design,and implementation which with just a little tweaking can be directly used in the project. Using book contect directly - would it do any harm? Has anyone done the same before? Really appreciate any insights, experience.
thanks in advance, Mahendran

Beside patterns, the domain should be very different, thus the classes, methods and variables should be very different..

Andrew's code is a great starting point, especially if you are an inexperienced developer (as I very much was when I first got the assignment). Believe me, you will end up changing the code in order to meet your requirements. I also wondered about class names, etc. and I do have a CleanExit class. I just couldn't think of anything better to call it, as Roel previously posted. I usually changed names slightly, but trust me, the code will be different. Nothing to worry about.
