Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts.

Yes, what I've done is to use a JEditorPane to view an html document, however I have had some problems when packaging the help html files in the runme.jar file (an exception occurs stating that the class was unable to find one of the help files, no idea why...) that's why I was considreing the use of JavaHelp.

But I think you're right so I'll keep my JEditorPane as a help viewer.

I would like to know your point of view regarding the user documentation.

As told in the assigment, user documentation must be provided. The question is that if it's worth to use JavaHelp system to provide online user documentation or just keep it very simple and use (as suggested) a plain html file.

By now I'm biased to the second option

Thanks a lot,

In fact I was tinking in the same direction as your solution (linux distribution was ubuntu - so debian based), because the same compiled code was working properly when connecting two windows based machines and also on a mac (with os 10.4). So I was guessing that it had something to do with the name resolution.

As said, thanks for your answer.

I was performing some test in the B&S assignment and I came up with a problem with the client/server (based on RMI) that I'm not able to solve.

All the development has been made on a linux computer with JDK 1.4.2. The network testing is done using the same linux-based machine and a WindowsXP-based machine using JRE 1.5.0_06.

In the first scenario, server is run in the windows machine and client in the linux machine and everything works perfectly.
However, when I use a second scenario, i.e. the server running on the linux-machine and the client running in the Windows machine a weird problem occurs:

The client cannot connect to the server and a UnmarshallException occurs. Moreover, it says that the client is trying to connect to localhost ( instead to the given IP (passed to the Naming.lookup() function).

To be honest I'm totally lost with this problem since it seems to work in one direction but not in the other direction. So any advice/guidance will be very welcome.

Thanks in advance,
