Frequently asked questions and errata

  • Question: What does it mean if one of the ServerTester tests fails with an "Unexpected end of file from server" error?
    Answer: This usually happens when the server crashes when sending a response. Check Eclipse for crash messages and see if you can figure out what the issue is.
  • Question: I'm on a Mac and can't run the client JAR file from Eclipse - it gives me an error message. What should I do?
    Answer: macOS's security restrictions sometimes prevent you from running software from unidentified developers (but you can trust us :) ). To get around this, find the JAR file on your computer (wherever you downloaded the starter code to), right click on the file, and click "Open".
