I've finished all my design, coding, and testing and am in the process of packaging my project for submission. I was wondering if I'm correct in assuming that the only thing that needs to be in the userguide.txt is how the use the GUI and how to use the server? Is there anything else. All the design choices are documented in the choices.txt file but I just wanted to make sure I covered everything! Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!!!

In my assignmet, I put the following things in my userguide.txt :
- How to start the client
- How to start the server,
- How to start the stand-alone client.
- How to book and unbook the reservation (my assignment was URLyBird)
- The simple troubleshooting


Good luck !!!

Hi B,

You are correct. The user guide is a user manual describing how to set up and use the client and server. I used html so that I can have screen shots for windows and errors etc.
