Hi all,
I'm ready to submit my exam and review the requirement.I got confused with the following:
"Network Approaches
Your choice of RMI or serialized objects will not affect your grade, but no other approach is acceptable. In either case, 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. No authentication is required for database access. "
I use a FileChooser to allow user specify the db file's location when starting server, but user can still locate a db file not local through Network Neighbour, is it ok?I mean on windows platform.

I find that the JFileChooser is very slow and takes a few seconds to come up. Anyone else has this issue?
