I developed and submitted my assignment with JDK 1.3. I passed with a score of 93%, so it is definitely acceptable to use JDK 1.3.
According to the overview on the Sun Education web site:
Part II is an exam with 5-10 essay questions pertaining to the solution you provided for the assignment. You must have completed the assignment and uploaded before you proceed to the exam. Select the correct exam number from the list below. If you have any questions regarding which exam you should take please send email to who2contact@central.sun.com.
You could argue that the application is intended to be run in network mode, but if the network goes down then you can run the client in local mode on the server so that you can still book flights in a network down scenario.
An IDE is not necessary for this assignment. I've coded the entire application using a simple text editor.
I recommend "Patterns in Java, Volume 1" by Mark Grand for a good book on using design patterns in Java.
I believe the point of the assignment is to demonstrate you can construct an application that can operate in either local mode, or network mode. You don't have to allow for a database to operate in both local and network modes at the same time. I don't see a reason to have 2 different database files, in fact the instructions I received indicate you should only have a single database file.
