Hello,
Shall we assume that the tester machine will know the path to the JVM and that the 'java' command will always execute.
Shall we assume that the rmiregistry will be up and running or do we have to start it by shell command or inside our application, and if this is the case which one is better.
Thanks.
Charles.

From the doc delivered with the assignment:
* A README.txt file. You must create a single text file (plain ASCII format; word processor formats are unacceptable) called README.txt that describes to the examiner the following information in exactly the order listed:
[...]
* How to execute the programs. You must provide exact command-line instructions. If any environmental setup is required, do not just say what needs to be done; provide instructions on how to perform the setup. For example, do not say something like "add server.jar to your classpath". You should document exactly how to add the jar file to the classpath. Note: your program must run correctly no matter what directory it is installed in.
From this, I think the readme.txt and the user manual should have the "most stupid user" in mind. But concerning the installed JRE, I just wrote about "<java>" as the path to the JRE/JDK installed. So I didn't care about environmental variables at all. Got full points on doc.
Hope it helps

You will either put how to start the RMIRegistry in the readme.txt, or you can start it up in code.
I preferred the code method, as I also created a simple Server GUI.

What do you mean by 'about "<java>" '
