Hi folks,
Need I to do any GUI for my Server?
Now, I'm writing my choices and after that I'll generate my javadoc. If the Server doesn't need any GUI, next week I'll send my assignment.
Thanks,
Wilder

Wilder,
I guess you can have a GUI just to start up the server, where server starter can set up the port no and can give location for the .DB file. (for server)

Hi Wilder,
I guess you don't have to. But that's your choice. As my understanding, most servers just use the command line.
Regards.

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.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
