I want to use special argument prefix to distinguish the different argument, such as for client application:
Client -SVRservername -POportnumber ...
to connect Remote server
or
Client -DBdbfile
to use local DB.
Is is OK for application or is there some better way to implement it?

Why use prefixes in stead of using flags. For instance: java clientProgram -server localhost -port 1099
Another possibility is using properties:
java -Dserver=localhost -Dport=1099 clientProgram
Hope this helps,
Henk
