Confusing wording in the Assignment Description

I know that the confusion is intentional by Sun but check this out.
"The remote client code that you write must provide all the public methods of the suncertify.db.Data class."
In my assignment (which I've nearly completed, except some docs)I'm assuming that this will mean that my Remote interface will contain accessor methods to all the public Data methods in Data.java whether I use them or not (such as add or delete).
Also my assignment reads that criteriaFind on the database will perform a search on 2 pairs of criteria and parameter. The user interface instructions read that the "user should be able to select the origin and destination of flights, and the display should update to show only flights that satisfy those criteria." Did you guys that passed the test implement a full blown search engine allowing the UI to search by any columns or did you just search by the Origin, Destination?
Thanks,
Joe

Agreed on your first point. Regarding criteriaFind, please distinguish between the criteraFind method which (as I read it) must allow searching for any number of fields, and the GUI which only needs to search for origin and destination.
