00:00 Welcome to the spoken tutorial on the Overview of the Web Application – Library Management System.
00:08 In this tutorial, we introduce you to a web application.
00:13 In this series, we have demonstrated how to create a basic inventory system.
00:19 We have used the example of a Library Management system.
00:24 To learn this series, you must have knowledge of:
00:27 Core Java using Netbeans IDE and
00:31 HTML. If not, for relevant tutorials please visit our website.
00:38 Now, let us look at the web application – the Library Management System.
00:43 A library management system is a system which
00:46 manages the issuing and returning of books
00:50 and manages the users of a library.
00:54 Now, Why do we need a Library Management System?
00:58 The use of such a system helps:
01:00 The librarian to manage the books in the library easily
01:05 To maintain membership information on one centralized server
01:10 To save time and resources and
01:13 To reduce the workload.
01:15 Now, let me quickly show you the system.
01:17 For this, I will switch to Netbeans IDE.
01:22 We have a very simple system here.
01:24 Let me run this Project named MyFirstProject.
01:30 The browser window opens.
01:33 We can see the Home Page of Library Management System.
01:38 We can see a very simple login form here.
01:42 There is a link to a page called Visitor’s Home Page.
01:46 Click on the link.
01:48 We can see the list of all the books available in the library.
01:53 A library has many members.
01:56 So now, let us login as a member i.e. as a user who has registered already.
02:03 I will login as “mdhusein” and give the password and press Enter.
02:10 We can see a Success Greeting Page.
02:13 We also have the list of books, currently borrowed by the user.
02:18 Let us logout now.
02:21 Next, we shall login as the librarian i.e. as admin.
02:26 As soon as we login, we can see the Admin Section page.
02:31 We can see 4 options here.
02:33 Let us try each one and see the results.
02:37 First, we have the option List Books.
02:41 Here, we get the list of all the books available in the library.
02:46 Next, we have List Borrowed Books.
02:50 Here, we get the list of books issued to different members
02:54 and the list of books which are past their return date.
02:59 Then we have the option List Users.
03.03 Here, we get the list of all the users who have registered in the library.
03:08 Then, we have the option to Checkout/Return a Book.
03:12 Let’s click on this option.
03:15 This is the interface to Checkout/Return Book.
03:20 Now, let us come back to our login page.
03:23 Notice that we also have an option to register as a new user.
03:28 Click on here to register.
03:31 This is the registration form to register as a new user.
03:35 So, this is the overview of this simple web application.
03:39 At the end of this series, you will be able to create this simple Library Management System.
03:46 You will also be able to add more functionality to it, like searching for a book.
03:53 In this series: we will be using JSP and servlets to build the web application.
03:59 you will also learn the MVC architecture in detail and
04:04 you will be able to develop any web application which follows the MVC pattern.
