Questions on Part II

I have some questions regarding the Part II exam.

It mentions that the existing mileage system is web-based. There should be a web interface for customers and an application for travel agents. Does it mean that the web-based interface is released to customers and a new Java application should be developed for travel agents?

Moreover, it wants to have a web-site for booking airfare. A "graphical user interface" should be developed for travel agents. Does it mean that customers will access the booking system via the Internet while travel agents will use Java application? In this case, is there actually a single Java application which can connect to the mileage system and also the airfare booking system?

Please kindly give me some advice. Thank you very much!

Yo Mandy!

The web based interface is not released to the customers. The requirements clearly indicate that the travel agents have access to the mileage system thru a shared web-enabled computer. It doesn't mention anywhere abt customers having access to it. In fact, it says that with the new system, they would like to be able to provide the customers access to this mileage system thru a web-based interface. They also want the agent to access this system from his/her computer directly instead of having to use another computer.


Moreover, it wants to have a web-site for booking airfare. A "graphical user interface" should be developed for travel agents. Does it mean that customers will access the booking system via the Internet while travel agents will use Java application?

Yes to both questions.

I have further questions on the interface for customers and travel agents. Does it mean that a single Java application is developed for travel agents while a web-based interface for customers to access both mileage system and airfare booking system?

In this case, should I use JCA to interface with mileage system in both Java Application and web-based interface?

It mentions that response time should be fast. Can this be solved by using load balancing?

Thanks!
