Database connection

Hi,
For connecting to the database I display a dialog which allows the user to select whether they would like a local or remote database connection. If remote is selected I display a text field which allows the user to enter the hostname of the machine wishes to connect to. I was wondering, for the local mode, if I should allow the user to select the db.db file to connect to i.e. with a file chooser dialog
Any suggestions would be appreciated
Brian

The requirements are very clear, -- in local mode, the user must be able to specify the location of the database.

Eugene.

Must? I never saw that, and in my submission I hard coded the location of the db.db file, user cannot specify the location and didn't lose any points.

Perhaps your assignment was different. Did you have this in your instructions: ".. the program must allow the user to specify the location of the database, and it must also accept an indication that a local database is to be used, in which case, the networking must be bypassed entirely"?

Yes in the Network approaches section. And I took it to mean which mode to be in.
The Location of the database is it locally or remotely.
So my start of the client was either
"java -jar client.jar" for local mode
or
"java -jar client.jar <<serverAddress>>" for remote mode. This fulfilled that requirement.
