I have a question about the configuration application. Sun requirements says that the assessor shouldn't hand edit any file. So I came up with a GUI base application which enables user to update configuration information. I've added this as an extra command line parameter. So I have [alone | server | config]. And absence of any parameter runs the application GUI in networked mode.
Do you think that might be a problem. Cause according to requirements, he should only have [alone | server] command line parameter?
I was wondering about this a well, I used a FileChooser and FileFilter which the user selects the Database for the Server or Stand-Alone app on start-up, not choosing the db or a corrupted db gives an error dialog and exists, I'm wondering if this is acceptable.

Sounds good. The only additional thing I would do is make sure that the database that was selected the last time the application was run (if any) is offered as a default this time around. This is to meet with the following requirement:
From the instructions All configuration must be done via a GUI, and must be persistent between runs of the program. Such configuration information must be stored in a file called suncertify.properties which must be located in the current working directory.
