In most parts of the following projects you can follow, or even copy, the code of the book data management app presented in the tutorial.
For developing the apps, simply follow the sequence of seven steps described in the tutorial:
Step 1 - Set up the Folder Structure
Step 2 - Write the Model Code
Step 3 - Configure and Initialize the Application
Step 4 - Implement the Retrieve/List All Objects Use Case
Step 5 - Implement the Create Object Use Case
Step 6 - Implement the Update Object Use Case
Step 7 - Implement the Delete Object Use Case
Also make sure that
your HTML pages comply with the XML syntax of HTML5, preferably by checking with XHTML5 validation (setting the validator field
Preset to "HTML5 + SVG 1.1 + MathML 3.0"),
international characters are supported by using UTF-8 encoding for all HTML files,
your Java code complies with our Coding Guidelines.
If you have any questions about how to carry out the following projects, you can ask them on our discussion forum.
If you would like to work on these practice projects with the guidance of a coach, then you should enrol in the introductory online course (book parts 1-3) offered by our partner developer-competence.com.
The purpose of the app is managing information about movies. The app deals with just one
Movie, as depicted in Figure 4.1 below. In the subsequent parts of the tutorial, you will extend this
simple app by adding integrity constraints, enumerations, actors and directors as further model
classes, and the associations between them.
Notice that in most parts of this project you can follow, or even copy, the code of the book
data management app, except that in the
Movie class there is an attribute with range
You can use the following sample data for testing your app:
