I'm a final year B.Tech student doing my final year project based on Java. My project is high availability server which minimizes the downtime faced by the main server by dividing the work load into subservers. It's based on Java Swing GUI and the network connectivity is NOT provided RMI (not same systems). Everything seems to work fine in the project except for the connectivity establishment between the servers being added to the list.. It's always going to the else part (i'm assuming) where it displays the error "Invalid data" for any connections established (ip address entered). I tried at my college with the main server also using different LINUX systems but I'm not able to solve the problem. I'm not sure if its something large or very small. Please advise.
I've attached the files and also the documentation (so you won't need to find out yourself)..
Mainly, the project files are ProjFrame.java (the GUI for the main frame which shows the load and status of all available servers)
ClientAdd.java (the interface for addition of the slave or sub-server by providing the ip address and port no.)
Slave.java (for the slave server)
Please help me and let me know if the problem can be solved easily (minor) or it should be solved with some assistance (I'm ready to pay if it's a big problem or requires so)....
