Is it safe to assume that a server installation which exports the interfaces and class implementation via FTP is part of the project scope? I don't recall this anywhere noted on requirements unless this is just a given.

Um..... FTP? You really mean File Transfer Protocol?

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

Hi Shannon,

Check your instructions. You possibly have a statement to the effect that "You must provide all classes pre-installed so that no dynamic class downloading occurs."

So FTP should not be needed / used.

Hi Shannon,

Andrew is right, usually the RMI codebase could be set by using a URL, but at least my assignment requirements explicitly stated that I should not require a HTTP server or security manager.
- you can complete your project without either (I used RMI too).
