Week 6 Assignment 2
Application: Implementing a Client-Server Protocol
You can learn a lot about the design of client-server protocols by reviewing the
implementation of one. And you can develop an even greater understanding by
extending or updating that implementation.
For this Assignment, you will modify an existing client-server protocol to
implement the Internet’s finger protocol.
Download the existing program contained in Week6_Echo.zip. This file unzips
into a NetBeans project that includes the source code for two Java programs, a
client program, and a server program. The two programs implement the
Internet’s echo protocol.
Start up NetBeans. Open the Week6_Echo project you just downloaded and
By Day 7, modify the client and the server so that they implement the Internet’s
finger protocol. The response from the server does not need to reflect actual
user data, but you must base the response on the name provided in the client’s
Save and submit your Assignment as a “.zip” file.
Retain your implementation, as you will be using it again in Week 7.
