ABSTRACT

The project report was undertaken in order to learn and use the features that PHP and MySQL offer. In particular, it was suggested from the researchers and the main goal was to design and implement an online database platform to hold information for all supermarket products that

Uchurni supermarket sell nowadays. This database communicates with a Web interface; to allow Internet users to order products and find all the information they need about the product from anywhere, where there is an Internet connection. As the developers had no previous knowledge of PHP/MySQL and generally web applications, they aimed at becoming experts in its use.

The research that the researchers made concentrated on three different areas. The first area was to understand the technology behind PHP/MySQL and the web applications. The second area was to find out the cui’rently available features of such systems. Finally, the last area was to find

new features for the new system.

This report descrwebes the features of online database systems that are used around the world, the technical information relating to the project, the methodology that the developer used, the functional and non functional requirements, the features of the new system, the implementation of the system and finally the testing that was used.

This project was extremely helpful for the programmers because it gave them the opportunity to learn a software development tool and to consider a software product from the legal point of view. It also provided them with inestimable experience for his future carrier.
