Hi,

my assignment (URLyBird 1.1.2) says that the customer id is "an 8 digit number".
Does this imply that only ids with exactly 8 digits should be accepted as valid ids?

In my current implementation a valid customer id consists of at least one up to a maximum of 8 digits.

regards,
Andy

I think that's just your decision. In my application customer id must be exactly 8, otherwise a message is shown. That's why I stored it in a String and not an Integer But less than 8 digits will be fine too (I believe Roberto implemented it that way)
