Debriefing Phase 2

Strong points of phase 2


Better than phase 1


More work invested


Deadlines met (mostly)


People have been reading more


Better results


Some excellent work


Very nice web shops


Some teams used NetBeans

Weak points of phase 2 (technical)


Bad analysis of JSP techniques


SQL Tag library is not very flexible and more
suitable for quick examples


Provided examples are meant as guidance,
not templates!


Still many database design flaws


Indices indispensable for phase 3


Imagine Amazon makes you wait 30 seconds after
each click …


Avoids blocking the servers

Weak points of phase 2 (technical)


Backup your work!


Two server problems (computer science and Murphy’s
law at their best …)


(At least) one broken USB stick


“… the most demanding in time and patience is
to make the report XHTML compatible.“


No, it’s not. Use XHTML compatible HTML editors or
simple text editors instead of Word & Co.

Weak points of phase 2 (general)


Some groups spent too much time on
merging compared to the web shop


Still
some

very minimalist reports and
incomplete hand

Advice for phase 3


Use the J2EE documentation


J2EE tutorial helps you get started


Don’t get discouraged


J2EE is complex (it’s in the nature of web
services)


As always …


Use the forum …
