2012 first project - Inventory System

Post  Alex-JustIT on Tue Feb 14, 2012 4:17 am

Hi Guys,

Below is a brief description of the requirements of the Inventory System project. Hope you guys managed to complete them before class. Start posting here so we can communicate.

Product: Laptop Inventory

  • The inventory should be able to hold products information
  • Display products information one at a time
  • Calculate and display the value of the entire inventory
  • Product should be sorted by name in alphabetical order
  • Add a 5% restocking fee to the value of the inventory of each product
  • Add a GUI to the product (Give it the ability to move through the products and view all the information)
  • User should be able to search the product based on the criteria


Have fun guys!!
Alex

Hi,

Just want to ask couple of questions about the project.

  • Is that Java “stand alone” project with Swing or web application or something else?

  • Should we use database for laptops (sql, File I/O etc.)?

  • When the 5% restocking fee should be applied?

  • How do you want laptops to be added to the memory/database and what sort of product information should it display (price, ID etc.)?

  • What criteria(s) should be used to search the laptops (price, name etc.)?

  • Could you also explain how big the project is suppose to be or how much time do you expect us to spend on this?


Thanks,
Arunas

HI Arun,

Sorry about the late reply I was on holiday and been having quite hectic weeks. :-)

Yes, You can just create a standalone application with the use of Swing.
You don't really need to get into details about using a database. What I really want to see is a simple running programming that can store inventory.
The 5% restocking fee should be applied only if the customer returned the products.
For the product information, best is for you too research about the product information. For example, go on to PCWorld website and see what list of information they provided about laptop.
For the search criteria, name and price range would be a good start!! Get it up and running and let me know :-) you can then build on that if you want.
This is still quite a small project. I would expect you to spend around 5 - 6 hours just to set up the basic setting such as even using a array to store products information. First, I want to see the structure of your code, how many classes, what methods are required, and etc.
