3 Questions: * Any ideas on this: 1)Design my GUI with the expectation of future functionality enhancements? 2)Establish a control scheme that will support this with minimal disruption to the users when this occurs? * Do I provide the user a Dialog, accessible from the toolbar, so that they can select a remote DB or local DB? or as command line entries when my Client app starts? * Any ideas on the client UI?? I have some ideas but would appreciate some more! Thanks!!
I've used the command line for choosing between local and remote. No problem.

Ok, I have changed it. All my friends knows me as JavaWix Anyway, thanks for the reply. I think that I will be using this forum quite often. Some more questions: 1)Do I need to format the data in the JTable? 2)The wildcard-like search, do I search the database for the letters the user entered and if the user entered "all" do I return everything?
the only thing you might/probably will have to do id to use trim(), just to trim off the trailing balnks which show up as boxes in the JTable. As far as time or any other field to look nicer, nah, it is not necessary. I didn't and got 24/24 on GUI.
2)The wildcard-like search, do I search the database for the letters the user entered and if the user entered "all" do I return everything?
do you mean wildcard as in the * at the end? Don't need to have that. part II of question, If they choose all, all is returned, yes. Mark And Welcome to Javaranch.
