In local mode, if I put db.db in jar(/suncertify/db/db.db), then call new Data(String dbName) to create an instance of Data, what dbName should I input?
Thanks

You can't open a file inside of a jar file.
You need to have your db file live outside of your jar file.
*hint* I believe sun allows a command line parameter of the db file location
