AITP NCC Java Competition Event Issues

Each year brings an entirely new range of options for the annual Java competition event: Which IDE to use, Which database to use, Which computer platform (Java Platform and Operating System) to use. Even issues such as letting the contestants provide their own computer or requiring the contestants to use a computer provided by the competition event. Making these decisions requires a set of assumptions and requirements. For more information on how the selection process is conducted and how you can contribute, click here.
