i was practicing on an exercise explained in the book (page 618 for who has it).
For the others: i have created a very simple remote service... create a remote interface, implemented in a remote class and create client class to send request. On the code side everything is ok.
compiled it: ok.
then run rmic on the remote implemented interface and... it should create two files RemoteImplemented_skeleton and RemoteImplemented_stub.
Now, my problem is... that it creates only the _stub one....
googled the problem, found and old topic at javaRanch, solved partially ( with -vcompat command) but i also read that this command and _skeleton are no more necessary...
so... first question...
1) what does it mean _skeleton is no more necessary in practice?
however, i created my _skeleton file. tried to run but... it gives me a Malformed URL excpetion...... arghhhh
i post here the code i was using...
implementing an interface
the one that make me suffer a lot
any ideas where's the error?
p.s. i work on a mac with macosx10.6
still, headfirst java 2nd edition is based on java 6, so the 1.2 version is long gone...
why put in an exercise that it won't go the right way?
anyway... im still wading in the dark waters of ignorancy...
Well I'm wading along with you :-) I haven't gotten that far in the book yet, but I have gotten far enough to realize
that the water is going to a lot deeper before it starts to go down. I will come back to this thread should I have any
epiphanies when I get to page 618.
