How would the following be interperted?

1. Your programs MUST not require use of command line arguements other than the single mode flag, which must be supported

2. Your programs MUST not require use of command line property specifications ----> i.e No parameters should be at the command line

3. All configuration must be done via GUI and must be persistent between runs of the programs ---> i.e Configuration the server such as hostname and port must done via GUI. Is this on the sever side? and stay alive throughout when the server is running.

4. The mode flag must either "server" indicating the server program must run, "alone", indicating standalone mode, or left out entirely, in which case the network client and GUI run -----> no ieda what this means

1. Other than the mode flag described in point 4, your program should not use any other command line argument.

2. Meaning you should not require the examiners to do this "java -jar <path_and_filename> -D... -D... <mode>".

3. Point 3 is optional, you can hard code it into your program, or you can use a properties file.

4. This means that "java -jar <path_and_filename> server" will start your database server, "java -jar <path_and_filename> alone" will start your standalone GUI client, and "java -jar <path_and_filename>" will start your network GUI client.
