PROJECT SAMPLER   A sampling of past student projects. This area will be updated each semester with new projects. All student projects contain source within their jars.

IOSERVE Simulator Package

These two files emulate an IOSERVE remote computer system. The file IOSERVESimulator.jar  is the emulator program. To use it, you'll need a license key placed in the same folder as the program. The license key is your authorization to use the emulator software. It is in a file called renew.dat. Once you've installed the files, double-click the JAR to start the program. You must have the Java2 platform installed. See IOSERVE.PDF file for complete documentation. Under Windows XP there seems to be a "hidden feature," a web service using port 5000. The simulator will try using a different port number if your machine has this "feature" active.

Example Java Programs

These are all JAR (Java Archive) files. You can open any of these JAR files with WINZIP; they ALL contain the Java source code. If you have the Java2 runtime environment installed on your computer (comes with some operating systems such as Mac OS X), you can simply double-click the file to execute it. On a Windows machine, you need to download the latest JRE (Java Runtime Environment) from Sun Microsystems for these to work. Microsoft has purposely provided a crippled Java2 runtime environment with Windows 2000/XP, so even if your Windows box says "Java2" you still need to download the latest Java2 run time from Sun.
