To determine whether the Application should run in Local or Network Mode, it is not appealing to me to assume that the end users should be given an option for selecting the mode in the GUI because they hardly understand how the database will be accessed that is from the local machine or from a remote machine.
So my idea is if the DNS name of the server and the port number are coming in as configuration parameters then assume that the application should take the network path, otherwise(that is no DNS name and port number given) run it in a local mode. Any ideas?

Mike,
Sounds good to me. I may just cop your idea there; I should be starting the GUI in a week or so.

Dear Mike and Jerry,
Here I have one doubt with respect to local and network mode.If the client selects non network mode then the database should be present in client machine(am i correct?). If so then whether we have to maintain any sync between local and remote databases? If no sync between local and remote databases then how we handle the updations on the local database when the client selects non network mode? please clarify this.
Thanks in advance,
sreedhar garimella.

Garimella,
If you are in a local mode then the database that you have in the local machine is the only database you have for your application.There is no remote database you need to look at.If you are in a network mode then the database is at some other location and not at the client's machine.Hope this helps.
Mike

I wonder 2 Do we need to Synch the local and remote database what if a user connects at local mode and books a seat and is succesful but at the other end remotely speaking that seat was not really available. Ok Is there the need for 2 databases locally and remotely???
Thanks Ray
