I am developing software apllication using java/jsp,servlets for online aptitude test. I have to track the time for once student loged in for test. Once the time is finished i have to make him exit from application. Since he we will be appearing the test the test screens will be dynamic.
At a higher level, you might consider using Ajax components in your pages to better minimize the page-to-page latency issues. This will make the test duration appear more seamless, and provide the test taker with a (nearly) uninterrupted test environment.
I have had pretty good success with the dojo toolkit for this sort of application. It is simple to associate an HTML form with the XHR object, and update the form parameters dynamically from one request to the next.
Breaking the "back" button in a test environment is something you need to think about, but dojo provides workarounds for that too. An additional "plus" is the possibility of making your test work in off-line mode.
Good luck! [ February 07, 2007: Message edited by: Philip Shanks ]
