A few questions

I have a couple of questions. Would appreciate any comments/help.
1. The package names in the assignment are suncertify.db
Are we allowed to change it?
I would like to have my packages as com.FlyByNight.GUI, com.FlyByNight.DataAccess etc.
Does anyone know if the package names can be changed?
2. Should the criteriaFind method support wildcards for the flight search?
At one place it says that "any" is to be allowed and also other wildcards, but does not give any specification like * or ?
What have others done?
3. How comprehensive should the user documentation be? Should it have things like "To book flights click on File menu, blah blah blah".
4. Can the mode (network or local) be passed as a command-line argument?
It says that the user should be allowed to specify the mode, but at the end it has a list of allowed parameters and the mode is not in it.
Thanks for your help.

Now this is just what I've done I'm not saying its right!
1) I kept the suncertify packages but added others around it e.g.
2) The only wildcard feature I added was the "any" clause. The spec does not ask for anything more.
3) What I did was create user documentation for someone who knows nothing about the system. This had... "to connect select connect from gui blah blah" However this document was small just how to search, book a flight, connect, disconnect etc
4) I did this bit in the GUI but you could write your program that if you recieve 3 or 4 command line parameters then the users wants remote mode else if they only specify 1 parameter then they want local mode. Basic but it would work.
Hope this helps
