Same problems again !!


Recently a group of fresh engineers joined our team. These young people are bubbling with so much excitement and enthusiasm, it is such a pleasure to welcome a new group in. But with all the hurly-burly come those typical problems that people bring to me (or whosoever they find free, I must be the laziest guy around :-) ).
A regular feature when new people are put on to work in Java is the problem of their code not being able to find corresponding jar files in the CLASSPATH. Now they swear that their path settings are correct and that they have put in correct libraries at the right places. YES, most of the times they are right !! What they fail to check is that at times their libraries are corrupted and that is a good reason for javac not being able to find the required classes.

More often then not the problem boils down to downloading libraries using ftp in ASCII mode (ftp is not extensively used in colleges so people are not used to it).

I am blogging this because today some one came to me with a similar problem, before he completed mouthing his issues, I had him running back and downloading the file again :-)) ! It never fails to amaze me how every one makes this one mistake at least once in this line of work. (Many do it again.... now thats bizzare!)

PS: I am also trying to shorten my posts, this one seems OK.
