I think Emerson Dunne would be a good name. But then that might just be me.

The only thing you need to study is your own code and your major design decisions. My exam was 5 questions and the questions are definately intended to make sure you are the author of your code, and that you had a reason for making the design decisions you made.
Just be prepared to explain your major design decisions (which you probably documented anyway!) and you'll be fine.
Shama, your post was very interesting (as was Andrew's and many others too).
But regarding your post...
Why do you suppose the limit of 4 wives exists? Also, you mentioned the status of the elder wife; what special significance does the elder wife have as a role in the family?

The DefaultTableModel manages the row data in a Vector of Vectors. It is generally accepted that the DefaultTableModel is a good choice for small to medium size Models, particularly where data will be added and removed after the model's construction.
If your model gets large, the Vector of Vectors can have performance problems.
One of the primary advantages of creating your own custom table model is the ability to leave your data in its native form... in the case of FBN, this might be a DataInfo array. To create your own custom table model by extending AbstractTableModel, you simply add a few (3, I think) data accessor methods. If you don't plan on adding and removing rows after your model is constructed then a Custom Model is a great approach.
BTW, in the "real world", I think most Swing applications that use JTables use custom models.
Manjunath, if your project involves JDBC then it is very different than the project I got. In fact, for my project it was
made very clear how data access should be performed, and the required technology was not JDBC.

Tony, if the issue is that this guy is a rapist (child or otherwise), then I agree he belongs in prison. I fully support the State agressively prosecuting rapists.
What I fail to understand is why people, and particularly governments, are so against the idea of non-traditional relationships. If you've got 6 consenting adults who have decided that they find happieness living as a married family then I think we (and governments) should support them in their pursuit of happiness. I think history has proven again and again that societies ills don't come about from happy people; it is when people feel they can't find happiness that problems arise.
If this case is really about trying to figure out how to put a rapist in jail, then I think the Government should try to make their case on that issue alone. If they can't make their case on evidence pertaining purely to the case, then we all should be worried about the manner in which justice is being sought.

Can someone explain to me why it is wrong (infact, illegal) to be happily married to more than woman AT ONE TIME, but not wrong to be unhappily married to 5 woman OVER TIME (i.e. ending in divorce).

=========
And when you get done explaining this to me, please address why the 1 man goes to jail and 4 of the 5 women (or all 5 women) don't? Marriage, particularly in this case, does not seem like an action one can do alone... surely more than one must be guilty if anyone is guilty.
=========
And finally, do you think the Utah guy not be facing jail time if he had just married only one woman and dated the other 4 at the same time? I'm pretty sure the Mayor of New York is married and dating; and no one seems to be bringing charges against him. (except his wife, of course... which makes me wonder how a guy who can't seem to manage his own relationships is going to manage the complexity of one of world's most important cities... ah.. but that's a topic for another thread....)

Nathan, can you post your policy file?
My instructions seemed quite clear; the Data Conversion Tool has a single purpose: to create a binary database file (using Data Class) from a plain ASCII text file.
I think what they are trying to encourage you to do is to NOT hardcode anything (i.e. field names, field positions, field sizes, delimiters, file names and locatiions, etc...). In this way, you should be able to create a simple tool which can be used to create the database needed for your FBN client and server, AND to create a non-FBN database which might be used for another project.
You might see if java.net.InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName() gives you what you want.

If movie tickets were priced according to the Movie's actual production costs (i.e. big budget flix would cost considerbly more than low budget films) how would you change your movie watching habits?

Thanks for the replies. Manfred, I am essentially doing what you suggested... and it will work just fine; however, I was hoping to communicate visually that clicking the [X] will have no effect when it truely will have no effect.
Thanks again for the replies.
