Develop a prototype of a technological solution which utilizes servlets, database and EJB technologies for building multi-tier Web applications for auction.
• The report is to describe the design of a simple auctioning system with a backend database and a Web front-end (mini-eBay), its prototype implementation and testing.
• The software development is for a simple auctioning Web site which features database backend and operates using standard browser only. It can be developed on a different level of sophistication, depending on the personal preference of the students but must utilize synchronous server-side processing of customer registration and bidding (using Java servlets or JSP) and server-side persistent session for watching the auction (using session and messaging EJBs).
