Function Point Estimation

I need to develop a java application that does following functions from high level

i) Retrieves data from a database with certain creiteria as from and to date and populates other tables in a database
ii) From the populated tables we form a file to other system.
iii) From the responses / logs we generate report for the other system.
iv) We have created 7 new tables in existing database and have altered 2 tables..


Questions:
i) Whether we can have function point analysis for this kind of project as there is no user input screens or explicit inputs for this scenario.
ii) How to estimate for database design? whether that is included in the inputs that we give in terms of ILF and EIF.

Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated.

Howdy "itChandaR",


Welcome to Javaranch.

A couple points, before moving on to your questions. Could you take a minute to change your display name so that it conforms to Javaranch's naming policy? Thanks.

And then, this forum is for questions about Javaranch, the site itself, not about java, so it will be moved to a more appropriate forum shortly. (Which one do you think would fit best? )

Your questions sound a lot like a homework assignment. If you let us know what ideas you have already, just to show that you've made some effort yourself, you'll be more likely to get some help along your way. The friendly folks around here will be glad to help you learn, but they will not do your homework for you.

Good luck and hope you'll be visiting javaranch often!

Pauline

Thanks for directing to appropriate forum and sorry about posting to wrong forum as i dont see any forum regarding estimation with function points. I have posted to 3 forum which are not appropriate. Just thought of hooking up persons who can help me out for the solution or appropriate forum where i can get some answers.

The forum you have moved seems to be appropriate and will wait for some one who can help.

Following are my analysis and which made to post this question:
==============================================================
Any function point book refers the estimation with the help of screen shots and data being stored in files internally. But this project doesn't have both the features, So, I was bit confused whether to use function points for this project or not.
