Another "must"

Hi all,
My specs tell
"it must also accept an indication that a local database is to be used, in which case, the networking must be bypassed entirely."

Does this mean that i have to show a pop up with a checkbox for the Local/ Network DB? Till now i was going under the impression that i can only run the application in the three modes that the specs have told. If i have to add this also to the project then there are all new set of test cases that i will have to code for.

Like what if someone launches in the network mode but still selects the local db in the pop up that i will be displaying. please can some one tell me if they are also adding this functionality???

Hi Sam,

There is no pop up requirements, you must let the user to specify a location for the (local)database. If the local database is choose the application uses the same logic (or mechanisms) like in the network mode but the network (layer ) is left out.
