I have problem, like so many, with compiling the AdviceClient. I've looked at
the different suggestions but it just won't work.
I do as it says on pg 57 and this is what i get:
AdviceClient.java:4: package headfirst does not exist
import headfirst.*;
^
AdviceClient.java:5: package javax.ejb does not exist
import javax.ejb.*;
^
AdviceClient.java:18: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class AdviceHome
location: class AdviceClient
AdviceHome home = (AdviceHome)
^
AdviceClient.java:18: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class AdviceHome
location: class AdviceClient
AdviceHome home = (AdviceHome)
^
AdviceClient.java:19: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class AdviceHome
location: class AdviceClient
PortableRemoteObject.narrow(o, AdviceHome.class)
;
^
AdviceClient.java:21: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class Advice
location: class AdviceClient
Advice advisor = home.create();
^
6 errors

I think you need to add the current directory and j2ee.jar to your classpath.

Well, apparently my classpath was ok (at some point I added the "." for the current directory but my problem remained) because I got through the compilation with this command-line:
javac -classpath %CLASSPATH%;AdviceAppClient.jar AdviceClient.java
When I try to run the client I get the "CORBA BAD_OPERATION"-exception but that's another story (I've haven't have time to look at that on the forum).
