I would suggest using a JSP/Struts/EJB model.

You need atleast 3 JSP pages, login page, data entry screen (to enter the String), and one more to display the result (the length of the String)
Then you need few EJBs - for user validation, calculating the string length etc.

And ofcourse, you need a database to store the user details.

Good point. Add some UML tool (preferably Rational Rose) to do the design.

Here is the list of software I would suggest for you to finish this homework

Application Server: WebLogic
Database: Oracle
IDE: Anything that is not free
Design Tool: Rational Rose
Configuration Management Tool: Rational ClearCase
Defect Tracking Tool: Rational ClearQuest
Testing Tool: WinRunner & Rational Testsuite
Project Management Tool: MS Project

Did I miss something?

calculating the length of a string seems to be very expensive..

now would that be a string as in "A String" or the thing that cats like to play with. Now if it is "A String", then you need to hard code it in your code. Then use .trim() just because it creates another String. Then you can convert it to a byte array, and use the List.asList method then use the Arrays.toArray() method to go back, then use this new array intot he constructor of String to get your results.

Now if it is the things cats like to play with, just create a YardStick class, put the string in the DVD burner, hit play, and your done.

That's what Rational ClearCase is good for. Much more expensive than VSS, CVS or SVN, so it clearly must be much better.

This can't be done using Java. It can only be done using C# or PowerPoint.

A bug tracking tool, of course. Don't know a good one, though.

You should really back up your ClearCase code in PVCS Dimensions. If that solution does not work for you, you should try the tip suggested elsewhere in this forum: delete all your work at the end of the day. You could probably find that post by searching for urgent.

string.length is not efficient. it has to go over each character and count it. A better way to do this is to write the string to a file, and check the size of the file

What you need is a proper project, a few steps:

1) Soft Systems Methodology Analysis - so you can understand the social-technological environment. Hire a change manager, they will change things.
2) Development of the project using SSADM.
3) Finally the "Mongolian Hordes" technique.

I understand just how urgent this question is, so I thought I'd point out that the answer is in this thread.

Speed is an issue - so you best develop in assembler - this works well with SSADM - there are a few SSADM to assember CASE / RAD tools. Also why use third party tools - why not develop your own IDE's, database, persistance models, version control systems (etc) - heck why not develop your own language as well. Thats the best way to work.
