CIS355A Week 7 Course Project Flooring Application User Manual and Application Code
Your application must include at least three tabs. The user will choose wood flooring or carpet, enter the length and width of the floor, as well as the customer name and address. The application will compute the area of the floor and the cost of the flooring considering that wood floor is $20 per square foot and carpet is $10 per square foot. A summary should be displayed, either in a tab or another window, listing the customer name and address, floor selection, area, and cost. This information should also be stored in the MySQL database table. The program should validate that all information is entered and that the length and width are numeric values. Any numeric or currency values must be formatted appropriately when output. Recommendations for the components used for input are
• radio buttons—flooring type (wood or carpet);
• text fields—customer name, customer address, floor length, and floor width; and
• buttons—calculate area, calculate cost, submit order, display order summary, display order list.
The MySQL database table is called flooring and has the following description.
In addition to entering new customer orders, your application should list all customer orders stored in the database. These will be viewed as a list, in a text area, and will not be updated by the user.
User Manual (Due Week 7)
Your actual Course Project and user manual are due at the end of Week 7. However, it is strongly recommended that you start your project in Week 5 to avoid many last minute issues.
In Week 7, you will be required to submit a user manual, as well as your Java code. The user manual can be a simple Word document with screenshots that explains how to run your application. Your mark will depend both on the program quality and the quality of the user manual.
Here are some more detailed guidelines about the user manual.
It does not need to be long, probably not more than 5 pages, including screenshots.
Write at the expected user’s level, not too technical.
Detail all the functionality that the application provides.
For each function, show what is its purpose and sample execution, with a screenshot.
