Description and Instructions
This project is an opportunity for you to practice your knowledge to develop a dynamic web application using PHP, MySQL, and any web development technologies introduced in this course. It also allows you to develop skills for working in teams.
Project Description (Online Inventory Web Application):
A local auto company has asked you to create an online inventory web application that allows them to manage the company’s inventory which includes sales of both new and used vehicles. Your web application must provide the following specifications in each part:
• Part (A)
A database will store the information of each vehicle, which includes VIN, maker, model, year, color, mileage, and price. VIN is the Vehicle Identification Number, which is unique for each vehicle. Also, store a picture of each vehicle in the database along with the rest of its information.
• Part (B)
Any user can search the online inventory web application and explore the information on the listed new and used vehicles.
• Part (C)
A manager can update the inventory. She/he needs to log in by enter the identifying information (username and password). Once given access to the application, she/he can add a new vehicle, and delete an existing vehicle. Also, a manager can update an existing vehicle’s information except for its VIN.
Note: Make sure to validate the data entry.
