In re-reading my design spec there is a blurb:

...There are three key parts: (1) the server-side database with network server functionality, (2) the client-side graphical user interface, and (3) a client-side database client part that handles the networking on behalf of the user interface.


Given this, how is item 3 different from item 2??? I would think a "client side database client" would be functionality within the GUI. Apparently it isn't which is very confusing.
The best guess I have for this is that item 3 would be a Facade or DataAccessFacade. If so, how would a DataAccessFacade fit into a my current codebase:

In asking this question I'm not looking for someone to provide code, just a little direction.
Thanks

It doesn't have to fit anywhere, -- it would be a stand-alone class and your client would use it.

In my design, (3) consisted of a single class that I didn't even write myself: the rmic Connection stub.
The assessor was happy enough with it.
