The option for using networking or not is provided by GUI or by java command?
Thanks

I'm assuming that the decision to do network or non-networked has to take place in the GUI. In the instructions it explicitly tells you what you can do.
Not sure if this is correct though, anyone else have an insight?
btw - might want to change your name or they'll get after you

Thank you anyway, Robert.
when the examiner runs the client jar and the server jar in different machines and he chooses a local connection, should he receive a error message?
when the examiner starts the client, he will see a window prompting him to choose a connect way?
After starting, can the examiner reconnects and choose another connection way?

This is a design decision That's one option.

Since you're not opening a socket, this would not be possible or necessary. Running it on the local machine simply is a way to run the program without networking if the database is on a local machine.
After starting, can the examiner reconnects and choose another connection way?


There is info on this in the HTML file.
Cheers

Determining Local vs Remote can be done in either Command line or in the GUI.

No, because local mode does not use the server at all, so it doesn't matter where the server.jar is because the lcoal mode will not use it. Think of local mode as in Word, you have the program and the data all on your computer. There is no server that has all your documents is there?
