Hi
Please refer to the sun's requirement for the FBN application.
The user interface should connect to the database using either a local or a network based connection according to user choice.
Should the user be able to change the connection from local to network or network to local at runtime.
If say the user is operating in the local mode and wants to shift to network mode then there must be a way to let the user enter the server name and port. Whereas these parameters were being provided as command line parameters when the application was being run in the network mode.
What is the approach generally being followed ?
Thanks
Ravi

The requirements are very clear about it, -- you can either implement a dynamic switching of the operating mode, or you can require the user to restart the client with a different parameter to indicate the operating mode. You will not be penalized for choosing one approach over the other.
