I strongly recommend no server GUI:
-- the requirements do not ask for it
-- server GUI is an additional complexity which can be penalized
-- it doesn't add anything whatsoever to clarity and reusability of your server design
-- GUI may not be able to run on specialized servers that do not have the corresponding hardware
-- commercial servers (such as Weblogic) run from the command line
Eugene.

In the new assignment, it is sayed that we should use GUI for property settings.
I think the setting of database file and rmiregistry port is enough for server.

My instinct tells me that they are talking about the client GUI, not the server GUI.
