Hi Guys,

A quick question about providing configurational properties for my application.

Anyone that has provided a suncertify.properties file with properties, have you provided a GUI to set these properties? I.e. for the server or client?

I have provided a suncertify.properties file, but am not sure if I need to provide a GUI to configure them. Is this an automatic failure?

Thank you for any help.

James.

I just updated the properties in the file whenever they were changed. I had a GUI on client start up for the server settings or location of DB file depending on the type of client. I also had a dialog box for the start of the server to specify the location of the DB file and also the port number the server should listen on.

Sure, you need a UI, eg. when user change the location of the database file path, the hosts name, the port.... all those should be logged into the properties file. but some value can be hard coded, like log level, handler...

I had no properties file, no GUI to configure those properties, no server GUI, and no logger. Just one simple dialog, where the user specifies if it is a local or remote connection, the name of the database file, and server name/port (if it's a remote connection).
