When I run my client server project I am getting a ClassCastException error??? My method finds an employee by the ID, Here are the specs I am to use.
variables
ArrayList emps;
Employee emp; I have an Employee class
Test the map for the passed key
if found
set the emps var to the arraylist found by doing a get on the byId map using the passed arg
extract the one employee outof the map using the map's get(0) method
execute the employees toString() to represent this emp as a string and return the stringto the protocol
otherwise return string that says not found

here is the code:

Which line throws the exception? What exactly does it say? Usually the message will identify what class you were attempting to cast to, and what class was actually found. This is really useful information when debugging; don't overlook it.

Looks like you're adding an ArrayList to an ArrayList, then taking it out and expecting it to have magically transformed into an Employee?

Mike,
When you said the data was not displayed right,
how do you want it display and how was it displayed currently?
