First, I see in several other threads a lot of talk about using a time-out when controlling the locking of objects. While I can see the utility of this in a lot of applications, is it necessary for this assignment? I don't think even Max's book deals with this. Second, I also see a lot of mention of including a jar file in your CLASSPATH when running it. I'm running Win98 and I seem to be able to store my jar files in any directory and run them without a problem. Am I missing something, or is this something that applies only to Solaris?

No, it isn't. That works on any platform. However, you may want to move the classes which need to reside on both client and server into a third jar. You then need a Class-Path manifest attribute to glue the jars together (couldn't resist the metaphor). - Peter
