    Default Please make me look foolish by solving!

    Hello friends,

    Beginner to Java here. I have a very statistical background and wanted to leverage my knowledge by learning Java! I need your help.
    Currently, running a simple code in command prompt to download Sales for my company's apple app:


    java Autoingestion autoingestion.properties 87382198 Sales Daily Summary 20131021


    And constantly recieve error "The report you requested is not available at this time. Pleaqse try again in a few minutes."

    It is not a maintenance error, as I confirmed this with Apple. Furthermore, the code downloads perfectly from my home laptop. Which leads me to possible conclusion that firewall at work is preventing the running of this code? If it helps, below is the link to the source code, and the error I receive aboive is mentioned in there!

    I hope to hear from you soon as this has been wracking my brain all week! Please make me look foolish by solving!

    Thanks

    How are you logging exceptions?
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Exactly what does the downloading of source code have to do with the application itself failing to download some report? If you want help with that thing, ask the people who developed it. If you have an actual question about Java programming, ask here.

    You misunderstand my intenions. I'm not downloading a source code, I provided the link to the source code as it provides the mechanics of my process of downloading a file, from Apple. A process which I'm receiving an error.

    Looking through this source code, I am attempting, but failing to spot the reason for my error. I have tried for a week and not getting far with this particular issuem having succesfully naviated past others. I'm trying to learn Java by solving real-life problems, no matter how small. I was hoping a kind soul would educate me to the problem of this error. As a former teacher myself, I don't care how silly or small a question is, the fact that someone has shown some interest in my topic is reason for me to help. If I'm in the wrong forum to post, please just say so, and I'll leave. I'm new to all this, so I apologise for any lack of etiquette etc.

    If you have a problem then post the relevant code here.
    If that text is from an exception handler then you need to improve the exception handling to at least log the stack trace so you know what the actual exception thrown was. As it is that text may as well say "Faw down, go boom".
