Does the server require configurable parameters, such as the name of the DB file? Do your instructions require that such configuration be performed by a GUI. rather than editing a proprrties file? If so, then you probably need some sort of GUI at least to configure the server as it starts up. After that, there's not necessarily anything else you need a server GUI for, except maybe to offer a "stop server" button. Many people apparently just let the user type ctrl-C for this, and evidently Sun does not penalize them for this. Your choice, I think. But study your instructions carefully; you may have different requirements.
