Jar File

Hi all,

My question concerns the runme.jar file. This file is to contain all that we submit right? Well one of the things that it is to contain is the db file that they sent us. Now the paper says that we must allow the the user to select the location of the database file. Now when the user runs the jar file do they have to select that very same jar file as the location of the db file (since the db file is contained inside it) and then our program extracts the db file from there and then after each write or read operation copies it back into the jar file? Or shall I stop thinking so anally and literally and assume that what they want is for us to select a file that can be anywhere on the hard drive and not part of a jar file or have I got something else wrong here?

I swear I'm dyslexic. Anyone know of any tests you can take for dyslexia?
