Hi Max & other JRanchers, I'm just getting started with my SCJD...I'll probably be asking a lot of elementary questions in the near future...but here's one to get things started: I've sucessfully imported Denny's DVD v.2 into Eclipse and compiled it with no errors (17 harmless warnings). I did the procedures in the ReadMe (create a dvd_db, run the dos client and populate some sample entries). However, when I run the ApplicationRunner, it only seems to work in Local mode. When I click on the Network mode button, it throws an exception. Also, in the local mode, the functionality of the application seems very simple. I can search and highlight the row and either "Rent DVD" or "Return DVD", which only decrement or increment, respectively, the number of copies. Is that all it does or am I doing something wrong? I'm not sure if there is more funcationality in the Network mode... Thanks for any help/advice...
Thanks Max, I will do that. You should convince Terry to participate in Javaranch so other SCJD hopefuls can benefit from his advice. Also, he may not have to repeat himself to many emails asking the same thing.... I'll ask him if I can post his reply here once I get feedback...

Well, Terry's a little busy: you know how those Java groupies can be, so he doesn't volunteer here as much as I do. But he's the real brain behind the curtains: I'm sure he'll have you up and running in no time. M [ August 20, 2003: Message edited by: Max Habibi ]
