Confusion about requirement

Hi ranchers,

I don't know what is meant by this statement (in my instructions.html):
Network Approaches
Your choice of RMI or serialized objects will not affect your grade, but no other approach is acceptable. In either case, the program must allow the user to specify the location of the database, and it must also accept an indication that a local database is to be used, in which case, the networking must be bypassed entirely. No authentication is required for database access.

Does this mean that if I start the application with the flag "server", I should have an option where I specify whether a local database is used (a check box or something); and if this option is checked I should start the application in standalone mode?

Do/did you have something similar in your instructions?
