Why does TypingTutor come in 2 Versions?

The only part that changes is TTServer and its associated classes.

JDK 1.1.x version

JDK 1.2.x version

TTServer1 uses java.awt.TextArea which cannot hold Strings > 32K.
When the grade file (grades.dat) gets too large for the awt TextArea then you must sort and total your grades with an external program (a Spread Sheet Program for example).
This version currently includes the handy lesson editor and lesson dialog editor.

TTServer uses javax.swing.JTextArea which can hold Strings > 32K.
With the 1.2.x version you should be able to sort and total grades using the features of TTServer.
