Failure is not when you fall down; its only when you fail to get up again.
Pradeep, It looks like most of the people are on vacation this time and hence are not able to come to their computer. I'm also facing some problems and waiting for people to come back. I would suggest you to go ahead with the theory and then come back to your old questions after a few days. _Sanjay
Howdy -- we're here now There are several issues that you have to work out to get a client to work, but classpath is nearly always the problem. There is also the BUG we've mentioned in other places, with J2EE 1.3.1 (on some platforms), but this requires ONLY that you change the name of the business method in the AdviceBean (and of course the matching component interface). The scripts in the book for exactly how to compile and run the client are 100% accurate, however. So there shouldn't be anything else you need to add to that, but everything has to be in exactly the right place according to the directory structure in the book. If even a single thing is out of place, it will not work. So I can't offer any more precise instructions for the problem that you are having at the moment, but we can try to somehow walk you through this. We *are* going out of town again tomorrow night, though, so I am hoping we can help get you going in the next day here. Hang in there. But yes, it *is* sometimes this frustrating to get things working in the beginning, It is always a little finicky and different on each platform and configuration, but usually once you get it all working, then it becomes much easier to build and deploy and run additional apps. cheers, kathy
