Course Project: Flooring Application
Developing a graphical user interface in programming is
paramount to being successful in the business industry. This project
incorporates GUI techniques with other tools that you have learned about in
Here is your assignment: You work for a flooring company.
They have asked you to be a part of their team because they need a computer
programmer, analyst, and designer to aid them in tracking customer orders. Your skills will be needed in creating a GUI
program that calculates the flooring cost and stores the order in the database.
The project has three components: an analysis and design
document, the project code, and a user manual. The analysis and design document
is due Week 4. The code and user manual are due in Week 7. It is suggested that
you begin working on the code in Week 5, which should give you ample time to
complete the project. You will find that the lectures and lab assignments will
prepare you for the Course Project.
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
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.
Analysis and Design (Due Week 4)
In Week 4, you will complete the analysis and design for the
project. You will use the guidelines described above and the grading rubric
below to complete this document. You will create the following items.
Request for new application
List and description of the requirements
Interface storyboard or drawing
Design flowchart or pseudocode
The analysis and design document will be a single MS Word
document, which contains all descriptions and drawings. See the grading rubric
below for the analysis and design document, due in Week 4.
Item Points Description
Request for New Application
A table containing: date of the request, name of the
requester (your professor), the purpose of the request, the title of the
application (create your own title), and brief description of the algorithms
used in the application
Analyze the problem to be solved, and write in a few words
what is the problem and what is being proposed to solve the problem
List and Description of Requirements
A description of the items that will be implemented in order
to construct the proposed solution
Interface Storyboard or Drawing
A picture or drawing of what the application will look like;
must include the image of each section of the application in detail
Design Flowchart or Pseudocode
A sketch of the flow of the application or the pseudocode of
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
It does not need to be long, probably not more than 5 pages,
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.
User Manual Points Description
Sufficient length to describe the application
Manual contains explanation in detail of all relevant areas
of the application
Contains screenshots of the key interface components
Images of each section of the application
Operations are explained
Detailed operation of each section of the application
Written to the user’s level and is not technical
Must not contain code or any other technical items
irrelevant to the users
