Project description

  1. 1. Employee travel authorization form The goal of this project is to create an employee travel authorization form for ourcomputer science department web site in order to properly account for official travel of theemployees. The main aim of this project is to automate the submission of travel authorizationprocess and avoid the existing method of e-mail submission. This will probably save employeestime and e-mail space. The project aims at creating a database for the travel forms and connecting it to theemployee travel authorization form. We are going to connect the database design to theemployee travel authorization form through java object/relational mapping; transactionmanagement and connection management of the database through hibernate. The measurableoutcome of this project is the creation of database and making sure that the data that the userenters in the form is properly updated in the database. The user authentication is prettyimportant module as we are going to use the university database of users to access thedatabase that we are creating. The access level of the database and the user access restrictionshould be properly maintained. In order to properly account for official travel, employees should make sure that theonline Travel Authorization Form is completed and approved before travel is taken, even if noWKU reimbursement is involved. This approval must be obtained through the Dean of theCollege and, if travel outside the Continental U.S. (OCONUS), by the Office of the Provost and sowe must make sure that they have their restriction in accessing their respective forms.
  2. 2. The technologies that we use are JavaScript for the purpose of designing the TravelAuthorization Form, MySQL for database design and java for object mapping through hibernate.The university user authentication will be provided by LDAP which contains more descriptive,attribute based data. The major milestones of the project are the Travel Authorization Form design and thecreation of the database. Once these two processes are completed, the next milestone wouldbe integrating the database to the forms; by using java object/relational mapping throughhibernate which also facilitates storage and retrieval of java domain objects.Why we are using hibernate? We are using hibernate to provide the database and configuration data to persistence services (and persistent objects) to the application. To use Hibernate, it is required to create Java classes that represents the table in the database and then map the instance variable in the class with the columns in the database. Then Hibernate can be used to perform operations on the database like select, insert, update and delete the records in the table. Hibernate automatically creates the query to perform these operations.
