I think you need to allow the user to launch the server with the database file s/he wiches to use.
In case the user enters the wrong database name, the data file will fail to open resulting in an exception which should be handled and dumped properly on the screen where the user tried to launch the server from.
I've used the command line for choosing between local and remote. No problem.
I presume you have a voucher for the assignment (the one that allows you to download the assignment to work on), and a voucher for the exam.
Regarding the voucher for the exam it means that you have until june to register with sylvan (I don't recommend that you register before!).
The reason being is you have another year with sylvan from the day of registration.
Grosso modo, if you register just before june 2002 you have until june 2003 to upload and then sit an exam.
Hopefully you'll finish before that

Thank you all for your help, especially Mark and Herve.
Thank you Javaranch for this brilliant forum.
I've already started preparing for the Architecture exam.
Will stay around.
Many congratulations Herve,
Good luck in finding a job. In Britain there is still quite a demand for J2EE. For browsing try
All the best
Try to post on the programmer certification link, cause this is the developers one.
I forgot to mention that at the end of the exam, the message says that you should have sat for this exam AFTER submitting the assignment.
So generally this is the way Sun expects you to do.
Surely a day or few days difference isn't going to be a big deal.
But why risk it!

Thank you Mark,
That's what I've done on Saturday, changed it to pass one parameter (file name) when invoking in local mode.
Herve and All,
8) Explain how Swing application handles local and remote mode
9) What is the command line to launch the client on remote mode
My client uses factory method for local/remote server, but I'm asking the user to provide the string "local" rather than the DNS server if he wants local is that possible, or will I loose marks over this?
Thanks Najib
Please help me on the above, cause Sun are closed this weekend, and I need to know what to do.
Thanks a lot Mark.
Hi Garry,
I gave essay exam on 4th & nearly 5-6 days before I uploaded the assignment.
Can you do that? Sit the exam, and submit the assignment later??
Cause I have to sit the exam by next Tuesday. (Afterwards the voucher expires with Sylvan). And I was going to upload the assignment on Monday because of that. But if I can spend few more days improving my documentation, then that's great.
Please advise.
Both solutions were definitely accepted by Sun.
If you pick up the server one than
unlock -- in a finally
I think is an atomic solution. Cause even if the client crashes the record will be unlocked.
If you pick up the client one, there are many variations, but in my opinion you should have a time out so that if a client crushes the record booked by the client doesn't lock for ever.
