Can we assume that the grader will have their path setup correctly to run java correctly? The syntax for my client is
java -jar client.jar <options>
If the bin directory for java is not in the path, it will not work (obviously)...

Hi Nate,
He wouldn't be much of an examiner if he didn't, now would he? Seriously though, it is best to avoid all environmental setup if possible and most especially setting the CLASSPATH since there are as many ways to do it as there are platforms that Java runs on.
So I guess the short answer is that it is safe to assume that the examiner's CLASSPATH is properly set.
Hope this helps,
Michael Morris

java -jar client.jar <options>

I'd day that is the best way to start the client.
