Hi,
Few questions about the URLyBird Programming Assignment:
1. In the Network Mode-How is the name and path of the Database file configured. Has the jar file (runme.jar) containing the configuration gui to be run on the remote system and the file name and path to be captured?

2. As I understand in the network mode, the runme.jar has to be installed on both the client system and the server system. Is my understanding correct?

3. The significance of the single mode flag per the assignment is:
Server - Indicates the server program must run
Alone - Standalone Mode - Client GUI and the database are in the same system
Left Out Entirely - The network client and gui must run.
The following are the two scenarios. Please correct if I am wrong:-
Standalone Mode: java -jar runme.jar "alone"(Because database and client GUI are running on the same system.)
Network Mode: On the client system -> java -jar runme.jar
On the remote system -> java -jar runme.jar "server"

Does this mean Network Client and GUI are same as mentioned in the Left Out Entirely "flag"?

4. In the begining of the assignment, in the paragraph important note about automatic failure, there is mention of the submission being analyzed by software where a specific spelling or structure is required. Can somebody please tell what does this mean?

Thanks & Regards,
Jayprakash

Hi,

1. In the Network Mode-How is the name and path of the Database file configured. Has the jar file (runme.jar) containing the configuration gui to be run on the remote system and the file name and path to be captured?

=> In my assignment, I developed to my server gui a option to select the database file.

2. As I understand in the network mode, the runme.jar has to be installed on both the client system and the server system. Is my understanding correct?

=> Yes. But you can run in the same machine both the server and the networked client.

3. The significance of the single mode flag per the assignment is:
Server - Indicates the server program must run
Alone - Standalone Mode - Client GUI and the database are in the same system
Left Out Entirely - The network client and gui must run.
The following are the two scenarios. Please correct if I am wrong:-
Standalone Mode: java -jar runme.jar "alone"(Because database and client GUI are running on the same system.)
Network Mode: On the client system -> java -jar runme.jar
On the remote system -> java -jar runme.jar "server"
Does this mean Network Client and GUI are same as mentioned in the Left Out Entirely "flag"?

=> I assumed this: alone runs the client in no-networked mode. Server option runs only the server. No flag option run the client in networked mode and also the server.

4. In the begining of the assignment, in the paragraph important note about automatic failure, there is mention of the submission being analyzed by software where a specific spelling or structure is required. Can somebody please tell what does this mean?

=> Before your assignement be analised, it will be submitted as input to some Ant tool, that will unjar your file, check if it contains the required files, and also if it has the required folders. I think is it.
