2. Precious Moments Figurine Database

This is a fictitious online database for Precious Moments. It is a re-creation of my java programming final project at Conestoga College. I used HTML 4.01 transitional and CSS 2 for communicating through an Apache server to a mySql database.

The major challenge of using data consistently on the web is persistence of the data across web pages. When the user checks out the database, the products are saved to the mySql database along with customer information. A return customer will have their figurine information automatically retrieved.

Site Goals:

  • informative content
  • easy to navigate
  • accessible by visually challenged people
  • implemented as straightforward as possible for ease of updating by non-technical clients
  • the World Wide Web Consortium compliant.

Features:

  • printing automatically provides a print version of the page without the user having to select a separate link to a "printer friendly" version
  • emails hidden from email harvesters and spam bots.

Browser compatibility:

  • compatible with the latest browsers
  • tested on Mozilla 1.x, IE 5.2, Camino 0.6 and 0.7, & Opera 6.0 for the mac, and Nav 4.7x, IE 5 & 6 for windows
  • no guarantee for Nav 4.7x and below, IE 4.x and below and Opera 6.x and below

Technology:

  • html 4.01 transitional
  • the World Wide Web Consortium's cascading style sheets standard 2 (CSS2)
  • javascript 1.5 with the World Wide Web Consortium's Document Object Model standard 1 (DOM1).
