I'm running a java chat server on a win-98 machine on a network.
The clients are also win-98 machines.
It is only when I reduce the security settings of IExplorer(on the client) that the appplet (which is loaded from the server machine) can access the chat server.
Is there anyway in which I won't have 2 manualy change the java settings of IE ,and still b able to create a socket connection to the chatserver.
I'm asking this becoz it won't b right to change the security settings of IE on every machine to make my chatserver run.
How do they overcome this problem in real world java chat servers.
Can anyone help me out??
Thanx in advance for your help.

Hi
I've been trying to build a chatserver on a LAN.
In my chat server the server is a Win98 machine and the cleint is an applet in another win 98 machine.
My problem is ,that my applet cannot make a socket connection to the server when run in IE , even if the page is loaded on the server machine itself.
Although the applet works fine when I run it using appletviewer on the server.Even the html page itself runs fine in Appletviewer making the socket connection to the server easily.

I've tried changing all the settings of IExplorer Java Settings,but it's still not working.
How can I make the socket connection run in IE ?
I'd appreciate any help .
Thanx in advance.

THANK YOU ALL.
It's only today that it's starting to sink in that I'm an SCJP finally.
Regarding Ramnath's question.
I got 83,85,80 in three Marcus Green's Mocks.
I got 75-85 in the JQPlus mocks and 90,96 in the randoms(JQPLS)
Don't be under the impression that mocks are always difficult than the real thing.There are some mocks around, which are still based on the old version of the exam and are much easier to score.
apart from that I noticed that the options that are given in the real exam are quite similar to each other and really makes you think ,whereas in the mocks you can apply the elimination rule to most of the options.
I hope that helps.

I DID IT.
Got 53 out of 59 right.that's 89.8%.They truncate it.
I round it to 90%.(Math.round(89.8))
First of all thanx to all at Javaranch.com.
especially Ajith Khallambela,Jane Griscti,Marcus Green,Amitabh,Shailesh.
I have to say this is the best site for certification discussion and I've learnt a lot from here.
The exam had 7-8 thread,5-6 IO,3 awt,2 util. Questions
I got 100% in Threads ,IO
and also in Overriding,flow control& exc.
Io is pretty straightforward.Thread questions are difficult and take up a lot of time due to long codes,but it can be cracked if you are clear on synchronization and monitors.
I lost marks in fundamentals,awt(suprisingly),Collections.
I never could remember all the interfaces in Collections
I feel RHE plus a lot of mocks is enuf to pass.
I used RHE and did IO,Threads,Inner classes,Collections from Khalid's book.
Khalid's book is really good ,but I just didn't have time to study the whole book as I only had 3 weeks leave to study.
JQPlus is a definite advantage.
I have 2 say there r about 4-5 questns. almost same to same in the exam.
Next target : either Sun Developer or JDeveloper.
Could anyone give me advice on this?
I'll be hanging around and trying to pay back ,in whatever way I can, the help that had been lent to me.
Thanx all

CONGRATULATIONS!!
Thats a great score.
REgarding your question ,I think only the 2 final methods cannot be overriden.
The static-only method can be overriden in a subclass but only if it is kept static in the subclass also i.e. it is not made an instance method in the subclass.
TRy it out.Correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm giving the exam on 19th.
I've just used JQPlus for the past 1 week or so.
Done all the tests averaging 75-85% and 90% in the Random.
Do you think that is sufficient.
Also how much of AWT was there in the Exam??
Thanx for your help,
and All the best for the future.

Thanx Amit. U were right.
The funny thing is ,I had already used this same command elsewhere in the same program, it just didn't strike me ,that it could be used in main.
2 many late nights the past few days studying does this ,I guess.
Bout privacy stmts. there r 2 questions in SCJP bout privacy stmts ,I heard.
I guess it's something like "these questions should not be told 2 others" etc.etc.
Wud definitely like 2 know more from someone.
VIKRAM

hi,,
how can one set the priority of the main thread,if it is possible 2 do so.
Another thing I'd like 2 ask is ,what are the privacy statemnt qustions.Do I need 2 prepare for it?If so ,how?
Congratulations Pankaj,
That's a really good score.
There's one thing I'd like to ask.
How good are the mock exams in compariison with the real thing.
I'm getting 70-85% in the mocks(e.g. Marcus Green).But I heard the real exam has a lot more I/o and stuff.
Is it so??
18 years ago
I just gave the Marcus Green mock exam no.1(Green) for the first time.
I scored 85%.
I felt that the questions were just like those from the earlier version SCJP exam.
Although he says that the test has been made keeping the
new version of SCJP in mind.
I have 1 and a half more weeks to go for the SCJP exam.
Where do you think I stand right now in context of the real exam?
Is the difficulty level of the Marcus test and the real exam comparable.
It would be of real help to me if any of you, who have given the new SCJP and also had done the Marcus Green test before that ,would answer these questions.
