My instrucation says"the program must allow the user to specify the location of the database, and it must also accept an indication that a local database to be used"
Does that mean the user can choose a database file on the server?
If the answer is correct, then how can I bind different Data objects of the same type to the rmi registry?
My data access class has a local variabl dbLocation which referes to the URL of the database file to be accessed.
If I have 2 users connecting to the server, and each user accessing diferent database, then each user need a different Data object.
How can I bind different objects that has differnt local variables?
I am newbie to RMI, and I appreciate any explination.

You just need a little gui on the server, where a user can select the db file. That quote is very wierd though, it doesn't read very well at all.

I agree with Charlie.

I don't think the client program can select its own database. I think all clients connect to the same server, which in turn uses only 1 database file at a time.

In the standalone mode, the user can select his own database.
