Hi guys,
i have a GUI for the server, which gives a server message e.g. server started successfully. And a close button, with which i can shut down the server.
I have 4 packages :
* client
* db
* server
* utils
I have all my GUIs in the client package but now doubt has arisen and i am wondering should i put the serverGUI in the server package or should i leave it in the client package?
Thanks!!

Ricardo,
I had the same problem and used a new package called serverApp for the server GUI. This may not be a solution for you but it made sense in my development.
I did not mix the client GUI and server GUI as I wanted a purely client application. Nor did it seem right (to me) to over complicate the server package with a whole load of MVC classes.
I'd imagine that whatever method you choose will be okay so long as you can justify it in the choices doc.
In hindsight I maybe would not have developed a Server GUI and had instead a command line Server with Ctrl-C for exit. I guess I'm lazy.
Steven
