Hello All,
I just read Mark's faq ( Great Job Mark ) and I read to far into some things and Mark's faq cleared up a lot of it. I still have one question left.

The client must be able to select the origin and destination of flights.

So, by this I envision select boxes.
then reading further you get.

The user should be able to describe enter the string value "any" for the origin, destination, or both, so as to implement a wildcard-like feature.

When I read this I think 2 text boxes. Do you guys think it would be acceptable if you just had 2 select boxes and inside those select boxes you have the current flights in the db file etc, but also an "any" entry that acts as your wildcard, or should I have a search and an advanced search page.
Thoughts?
-Matt

I had two JComboBoxes, the first entry had "ANY", then followed by all the values.

that's what i've got. i think providing select boxes, cuts out any validation, and is generally easier for the user.
