For the searching part specifications I've got are in two versions in the instruction and the DB interface.

The instruction said:"It must allow the user to search the data for all records, or for records where the name and/or location fields exactly match values specified by the user."
The DB interface said in comment:"
//A non-null value in criteria[n] matches any field
// value that begins with criteria[n]
. (For example, "Fred"
// matches "Fred" or "Freddy".)"

I guess I should follow the instruction, shouldn't I?

I think it's by far the most frequently asked question on this forum.

And the answer is simple: for your Data class implement what's asked (startsWith matching) and then you have to do some extra filtering to only show the exactly matching records.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
