hello,

I have been assigned a task to build an examination system using servlet, jsp and database mysql. I started reading HeadFirst Servlets and JSP.It is a truly engrossing book and am enjoying reading the book.

But can I get a knowhow on how to practically implement the above project and how to go about it.

Any recommedation will be useful.

I can't communicate over 8 years experience in building exam systems in one post, but I can give you a few pointers.
1. Pay attention to ease of creating / editing questions, your question authors will thank you.
2. Don't write yourself into a corner with the question storage format - I recommend XML - the added flexibility is worth the trouble. Note that the authoring format does not have to be the storage format.
3. Don't write yourself into a corner with the question presentation, make use of the best practices for HTML, including CSS for presentation style.

Bill
