It’s already not part of our concern because we can’t predict when it will exactly happen. Also, this website will not function when there’s no internet connection for it will only be accessed through the use of the web. 1. 4 Definitions of Terms • Alpha Testing – testing of software at the developer’s site by the customer. The stage before beta testing. Beta Testing – test of a new or modified piece of computer software by customers who volunteer to do so. • Construction – . It involves programming, application enhancement, coding, unit integration and testing of the system. • Cut-Over – It entails data conversion, testing of the system, user training and changeover to the new system. • Debugging – To search for and eliminate malfunctioning elements or errors in something, especially a computer program or machinery. • Dreamweaver-A comprehensive Web site authoring program for Windows and Mac from Adobe.
Dreamweaver is a sophisticated authoring package that is noted for many advanced features. For example, site designers can seamlessly move back and forth between visual and HTML modes. • JAD – The Joint Application Development (JAD) a user oriented technique for fact-finding and requirement modeling that brings users into the development process as active participant. • Online – Computer or device connected to a network (such as Internet) and ready to use (or be used by) other computers or devices. PHP – is a general purpose and powerful scripting language to produce dynamic website and interactive web pages. • RAD – Rapid Application Development (RAD) a condensed version of the entire SLDC, with users involved every step of the way. • Real Estate – the business of real estate; the profession of buying, selling, or renting land, buildings or housing. ” • Requirement Planning – This phase requires intense involvement from users at different levels of the organization. • Website – is a set of related web pages containing content such as text, images, video, audio, etc.
A website is hosted on at least one web server, accessible via a network such as the Internet or a private local area network through an Internet address known as a Uniform Resource Locator. All publicly accessible websites collectively constitute the World Wide Web. CHAPTER II. Methodology In Business, a website is the potential for reaching a wider audience. The internet is used by literally millions of people, all of them are looking for something and some of them might be looking for something new.
Building website for Exalted Realty for Advertising that provides the information to consumers is a heavy task because it is a series of test and revisions are needed for it to become functional, accurate, and productive. Hence, the following system development methodology in implementing the project is reasonable and helpful decision. A system development methodology helps to improve in planning, implementing, and managing the development of the project. In choosing a good system methodology to be used in developing the website, there are some components to be deal with.
First was choosing a system development methodology that can be performed in a short period of time. Second, consider the sum of team members. And lastly the criticality of the system has to be taken into attention. Generally the proposed is about supplying information essential to the member or viewers need. Thus, system development methodology is applicable for this analysis with that it needs further understanding about the different system development would be able to choose the most perfect model. 2. 1 System Development approach
Rapid Application Development (RAD) a condensed version of the entire SLDC, with users involved every step of the way. It uses minimal planning in favor of rapid prototyping. The Planning of software developed using RAD (Rapid Application Development) is interleaved with writing the software itself. It provides a fast track approach to a full spectrum of system development tasks, including the planning, the design, and the construction. Rapid Application Development promotes fast, efficient, accurate system development and delivery.
Generally improves user design communication, user cooperation and user commitment, and promotes better documentation. The Team had a short period of time to accomplish the Website with that the Joint Application Development (JAD) helps the developer to build the system. The Joint Application Development (JAD) a user oriented technique for fact-finding and requirement modeling that brings users into the development process as active participant. It is used in the prototyping Life Cycle Area of the Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM) to collect business requirement while developing new information system for a company.
JAD (Joint Application Development) use was most effective in large complex projects. In JAD, information can be obtained and validated in a shorter time frame by involving all participants (or at least a representative set of participants) who have a stake in the outcome of the session. The Relation between the two approaches JAD (Joint Application Development) and RAD (Rapid Application Development) helps to fully finish and provide a suitable result support by the information gathered. The combination of this approach gives a functional and effective specific period.
Although the JAD and the RAD are very specific techniques, the main aspects of these methodologies should be used in all systems analysis and design projects. The concept of having the user involved in all aspects of the project is essential to any project. Involving key personal for various departments, including management, is also critical to the success in developing a system. 2. 2 JUSTIFICATION OF METHODOLOGY The Team followed the four stages of Rapid Application Development suit as pattern on making the WEBSITE for Exalted Realty. REQUIREMENTS PLANNING
In the requirements planning phase, users and analysts meet to identify objectives of the system and to identify information requirements arising from those objectives. This phase requires intense involvement from users at different levels of the organization. This stage involves reviewing the areas that are clearly necessary to the system being built. The review creates a solid overview, covering the requirements and outlining the functions performed by the system. The WEBSITE is approved by proprietor of EXALTED REALTY to help their Market in the business.

This covers an in-depth look of business operations that relate to the system being designed. The users who will be employing the proposed system analyze how data is used and how this use affects the flow of operations from a business standpoint. During this phase the team interacts with the system designed, including sample screens and procedures. By the end of this step, the general idea behind the new system begins to transform into a specific plan.
Construction The third phase is construction and it focuses on program and software creation. It is similar to the SDLC. It involves programming, application enhancement, coding, unit integration and testing of the system. Users still continue to contribute by suggesting changes as reports and screens are developed. It is similar to the System Development life Cycle (SDLC). Cut Over The last phase of RAD Rapid Application Development is referred to as Cut Over. It entails data conversion, testing of the system, user training and changeover to the new system.
