Completion and Migration of a SQL 2003 Database and ASP .NET 1.1 Web Application Using Software Engineering Practices
Presenter: Rae J. Nims
This paper and presentation will describe the use of software engineering practices to a partially implemented database and web page application. The completion of a database and web page application is about more than just development, test and deployment. Out-of-scope challenges can be encountered which impact the underlying computer systems’ infrastructure as well as the user base when company-wide security measures are implemented without advance warning. Changes to a COTS tool that was interfaced also impacts the effort. Good software engineering practices are used to educate the stakeholders, deal with the out-of-scope changes and rearrange the project schedule to bring the application into production successfully. Technologies used are SQL 2003 SQL 2003; ASP .Net 1.1, SQL 2005; ASP .NET 2.0; MS Reporting Services 2005, and MS Access 2007. The methodologies used as well as lessons learned, will be discussed in what was a successful project.
