Hi ranchers,
I am not sure about a statement abstracted from my instruction, which is like
Your programs must not require use of command line property specifications. All configuration must be done via a GUI, and must be persistent between runs of the program.
Could you please show my your view about that?Thanks.

Hi Zhixiong,

Thats means you are not allowed to use other command line parameters than the specified one, but, if you application requires some configuration adjustments (e.g. a new path for your db file) you need a UI to to this. All the settings done with the configuration UI must be persistent.

Regards M.

I agree. Here's the link:
