CS 8630 Project Presentation Instructor: Dr. Guimaraes Members: Chieu Wang & Bohan Huang Online Cinema System (OCS) • Overview – An interactive online cinema booking system. – Provide Customer & Administrator functions. – Customer online registration, movie preview, interactive seat booking, view movie schedules. – Administrator online maintenance of movies and cinema records, customer list generation. Technology Used • • • • • • Database – Microsoft Access 2003. Java Database Connectivity – JDBC. Apache Tomcat – Web Server. Java Server Pages – JSP. HTML. Java Scripts. Application Development • Research existing systems and collect possible roles for system. • Create E-R diagram & Relational Schema. • Deploy Apache Web Server – Test connectivity. • Develop JSP pages and Java Scripts. • Build base tables. • Testing and debugging. Specifications Development • Discussion and role play on functions. • Based on past personal experiences using the manual system. • Sort and rank functions for development. • Decide to work on ‘core’ functions and seat booking before others. Development Priorities Completed • • • • • • • User log In. Profile administration. User registration. Movie previews. Movie show times. Movie seat reservation. Booking list. System Restrictions • Customers restricted to book a maximum of 4 seats per cinema per show time. • Movie show dates valid for 7 days in advance. • Static show time allocated to each cinema. • No payment collection implementation.

What we learnt from the project • Design of database schema first – very important. • Team communications are very important in resolving discrepancies. • Bugs, bugs, and more bugs. They are everywhere. • We need a smarter IDE/Debug tool for JSP, Apache, and scripting errors. Possible Suggestions and Enhancements • Conversion to ASP.NET could ease debugging. • Available plug-in will help in development in ASP.NET. • Beef up data validation. • Conversion to Oracle database.
