Suggestion required for User module

Friends,

I am working on an e-course website. Users will register with site and register themselves for e-courses available. Site will keep track of following:

* User Registration
* User Course Relations (how many courses opted, how many already completed etc.)

We are using following technologies:

* JSF for MVC
* Hibernate for persistence

My question is, for above 2 user tasks what is the standard best approach being used these days? Should I create tables in database and write code to maintain above information or is there a better approach available?

regards
Varun

Hi,

Am not sure I understand your query.

You have to maintain information (what exactly you call information is application specific, I feel). So you will have to use some kind of persistence mechanism (database is a good choice considering the advantages it provides). You mentioned you are using hibernate (hibernate is an ORM, Object to Relational mapping tool). So its obvious you ought to have a database, right? Is there anything specific you have in mind?

Cheers,
Raj.

Thanks for reply Raj. Actually I am thinking "Managing User Profiles, login and password" is a pretty standard problem, so there could be a standard solution available out of the box. Is everybody writing new code in every project to handle this problem?

Hi,

I agree it is a functionality common across many applications but am yet to come across an Out of the box solution to manage this.

Cheers,
Raj.
