[URLyBird] Standalone vs. Networked Client

Hello All,

just to make sure I understood correctly:

1) If the program is invoked using the "alone" switch, then the client
GUI is invoked and only allows local files to be used as database
locations.

2) If the program is invoked with no switch (default), then the client
GUI is invoked and only allows network locations (IP addresses) as
database locations.

Meaning, that the client GUI is the same for both cases, and only the
"open database" operation behaves differently.

Am I missing anything?


Thanks

The gui is the same, the database is the same. The only different is 1 accesses the dao via RMI and the other one goes direct.

That is basically correct. Just know that networked involves a server, and local does not have a server. It accesses the data directly.

What Mark was saying,

Also, It seems some people think they have to specify the actual location of the database db file. I beleive those people are misreading the instructions.

Atleast what I have read is that you should specify the server name and port when using no parameter, you should activate the server portion of the program when run in [server] mode and you should activate everything via no rmi when run in [alone] mode.
