I have doupts about search in client GUI. It is written in the submision i paragraph "The User Interface":

...
It must allow the user to search the data for all records, or for records where the name and/or location fields exactly match values specified by the user.
...

Is it means that it is a little bit different searching than "Fred"
matches "Fred" or "Freddy"? Is it necessary to use in GUI searching like "Fred" matches "Freddy" and nothing else?

Please help.

Your Data class should return records that have partial match, whether you make like an AND or an OR is up to you and you should put it in your choices.

Your GUI should show only exact matches.

Data: "Fred" matches "Freddy", "Fredd", etc...
GUI: "Fred" matches "Fred" only
