Well the problem is that the code is trying to parse the string "try this to invoke try-catch" into a date which it obviously can't do, but without seeing any code and the format of your input data nobody is going to be able to tell you why it is doing this.

Have you tried compiling it ? What happened ?

Well spotted Sresh . I could see it was printing the hashCode of an Object rather than the Object array, but i couldn't think why.

Richard, you can stop the Object array from being treated as var-args by adding a cast. Try

and see that the object class is now [Ljava.lang.Object; (an array of Objects) rather than java.lang.Object.

Calling that code from another class will not cause a NullPointerException unless the reference you are calling the method with is null. So we would need to see that other code before we can help you.
The full stack trace you get may also be helpful

In that case you need to change the return type of your method (it is currently declared to return an array of double arrays) and also the type of the A variable.

And when you've fixed that you need to know that array indexes start from 0 and go to n - 1, where n is the length of the array.

You're already discussing that here. Don't start a second thread as it may waste people's time posting information in one thread that is already in the other one.

The compiler isn't clever enough to know that you will always enter the for loop, therefore it is complaining that, if the for loop is not executed, there is no return statement.

Having said that, why have you got a for loop anyway ? It returns every time during the first iteration, so your code is basically the equivalent of

It's more a case of what you didn't do

Your first problem is that you never enter the while loop

You set arraysEqual to false and then test if it is true.

Are you sure that is the code you are running ?
The stack trace shows you calling the loadMDBFile method in the File_Open class, but your code is showing a class called FileChooserTester

What exactly are you hoping to achieve ? The point of a chat server is to allow clients to chat with each other. You have one server and multiple clients. If every client is using a different server none of them will be able to communicate with the others.

more interestingly

this will compile

for(;false == false;){}

Well why wouldn't it ?
It's equivalent to
which, as you said, is allowed.

The versions of Windows Server that you will probably still find in use are 2012, 2008 and possibly 2003. The process for enabling anonymous LDAP access is different on each of these, but your admin should know how to do it.

It is possible to set up anonymous access on AD. How to do it varies depending on which server you are using. It is also disabled by default (as it's a potential security hole) so you will need to bother Admin people whichever route you take.
