I just submitted my assignment and I realised that I made a stupid mistake: the specification asked to put all the javadoc into a folder called "javadoc" under "docs" directory. However, I ended to have the directory called "javadocs" instead.
I assume this will result a automatic failure? One thing to note is that there is no "MUST" in the requirement for this naming.

I'm gutted by this mistake

Howdy, partner.

Man... this is what I have in my instructions.html file:

"All elements of your submission must be packaged in a single JAR file. The JAR file must have the following layout and contents in its root:"

So, to be honest, I guess it would cause automatic failure. The sad thing is that you only have one chance to submit the file

Hi Ericsson,
I hope for you that you will not fail because of such a stupid mistake.
It takes enough money to send again the jar file, I hope that the will understand that the mistake has actually nothing to do with your Java knowledges.
Good luck !

Hi friend, I'm afraid that the software will fail you. Hope that there is a bug in that software so you don't get automatic failure.

If you don't get it now, there is a possibility that you don't get the automatic failure. I think if someone get automatic failure, the result will be sent as soon as possible.
