November 10, 2003

Here is the major Tomcat site; as far as I know, any version of Tomcat should be sufficient for our purposes.

I think the best site for Tomcat installation is Configuring & Using Apache Tomcat, but there are many other sites if this one doesn't work for you.

November 6, 2003 Note that the DOM Printer assignment uses an OutputStream, which has no print or println methods to output a String; it only has write methods to output bytes. So your DOM Printer cannot use print or println. But note that the String class has a getBytes method.
November 6, 2003 The due date for the DOM assignment is Monday, November 10 (before midnight).

October 21, 2003 Fire Drill: As many of you know, we have a planned fire drill in Towne at 10:30 Wednesday, October 22--right at the start of our class. It will probably be over in about 15 minutes. I recommend that we just start class as usual and act as though we didn't know about it (but I won't start the quiz until it's over!) Be sure to take valuables with you when you exit.
October 21, 2003 Some time ago I posted the answers to the first quiz, but I apparently forgot to make a link to it. Oops!
