PROJECT REPORT

Submitted by FALCON FRANCIS MANJU V RAVINDRAN RANJITH IRAN VINU THAN ACHAN

A!STRACT Student Management System deals with all kind of student details, academic related reports, college details, course details, curriculum, batch details and other resource related details too. It tracks all the details of a student from the day one to the end of his course which can be used for all reporting purpose, tracking of attendance, progress in the course, completed semesters years, coming semester year curriculum details, exam details, project or any other assignment details, final exam result; and all these will be available for future references too. ur program will have the databases of !ourses offered by the college under all levels of graduation or main streams, teacher or faculty"s details, batch execution details, students" details in all aspects. #his program can facilitate us explore all the activities happening in the college, even we can get to know which teacher $ faculty is assigned to which batch, the current status of a batch, attendance percentage of a batch and upcoming re%uirements of a batch. &ifferent reports and 'ueries can be generated based of vast options related to students, batch, course, teacher $ faculty, exams, semesters, certification and even for the entire college.

CHAPTER # INTRODUCTION

Ab$ut t%e &'$(e)t #he student management system is an automated version of manual Student Management System. It can handle all details about a student. #he details include college details, subject details, student personnel details, academic details, exam details etc... In case of manual system they need a lot of time, manpower etc.9ere almost all work is computeriBed. So the accuracy is maintained. Maintaining backup is very easy. It can do with in a few minutes. ur system has two type of

accessing modes, administrator and user. Student management system is managed by an administrator. It is the job of the administrator to insert update and monitor the whole process. :hen a user log in to the system. 9e would only view details of the student. 9e can"t perform any changes .#he system has four modules. #hey are

System study aims at establishing re%uests for the system to be ac%uired, developed and installed. It involves studying and analyBing the ways of an organiBation currently processing the data to produce information. 4nalyBing the problem thoroughly forms the vital part of the system study. In system analysis, prevailing situation of problem carefully examined by breaking them into sub problems. 5roblematic areas are identified and information is collected. &ata gathering is essential to any analysis of re%uests. It is necessary that this analysis familiariBes the designer with objectives, activities and the function of the organiBation in which the system is to be implemented.

#he .7+# ,ramework (.(, used for building and running all kinds of software, including :ebFbased applications, smart client applications, and =M* :eb servicesJcomponents that facilitate integration by sharing data and functionality over a network through standard, platformFindependent protocols such as =M* D+xtensible Markup *anguageE, S 45, and 9##5. I &eveloper tools, such as Microsoft 2isual Studio.7+# -AA., which provides an integrated development environment DI&+E for maximiBing developer productivity with the .7+# ,ramework.

and compelling user experience across a family of devices and existing products

....( 4&247#43+S , 7+# #he .7+# ,ramework offers a number of advantages to developers. #he following paragraphs describe them in detail. ....(.( !onsistent programming model &ifferent programming languages have different approaches for doing a task. ,or example, accessing data with a 2; ?.A application and a 2!KK application is totally different. :hen using different programming languages to do a task, a disparity exists among the approach developers use to perform the task. #he difference in techni%ues comes from how different languages interact with the underlying system that applications rely on. :ith .7+#, for example, accessing data with a 2; .7+# and a !L .7+# looks very similar apart from slight syntactical differences. ;oth the programs need to import the System. &ata namespace, both the programs establish a connection with the database and both the programs run a %uery and display the data on a data grid. #he 2; ?.A and 2!K K example mentioned in the first paragraph explains that there is more than one way to do a particular task within the same language. #he .7+# example explains that there"s a unified means of accomplishing the same task by using the .7+# !lass *ibrary, a key component of the .7+# ,ramework. #he functionality that the .7+# !lass *ibrary provides is available to all .7+# languages resulting in a consistent object model regardless of the programming language the developer uses. ....(.- &irect support for security &eveloping an application that resides on a local machine and uses local resources is easy. In this scenario, security isn"t an issue as all the resources are available and accessed locally. !onsider an application that accesses data on

a remote machine or has to perform a privileged task on behalf of a nonprivileged user. In this scenario security is much more important as the application is accessing data from a remote machine. :ith .7+#, the ,ramework enables the developer and the system administrator to specify method level security. It uses industryFstandard protocols such as #!5$I5, =M*, S 45 and 9##5 to facilitate distributed application communications. #his makes distributed computing more secure because .7+# developers cooperate with network security devices instead of working around their security limitations. ....(.. Simplified development efforts *et"s take a look at this with :eb applications. :ith classic 4S5, when a developer needs to present data from a database in a :eb page, he is re%uired to write the application logic DcodeE and presentation logic DdesignE in the same file. 9e was re%uired to mix the 4S5 code with the 9#M* code to get the desired result. 4S5.7+# and the .7+# ,ramework simplify development by separating the application logic and presentation logic making it easier to maintain the code. Gou write the design code Dpresentation logicE and the actual code Dapplication logicE separately eliminating the need to mix 9#M* code with 4S5 code. 4S5.7+# can also handle the details of maintaining the state of the controls, such as contents in a textbox, between calls to the same 4S5.7+# page. 4nother advantage of creating applications is debugging. 2isual Studio .7+# and other third party providers provide several debugging tools that simplify application development. #he .7+# ,ramework simplifies debugging with support for 6untime diagnostics. 6untime diagnostics helps you to track down bugs and also helps you to determine how well an application performs. #he .7+# ,ramework provides three types of 6untime diagnosticsC +vent *ogging, 5erformance !ounters and tracing. ....(.> +asy application deployment and maintenance #he .7+# ,ramework makes it easy to deploy applications. In the most common form, to install an application, all you need to do is copy the application along with the components it re%uires into a directory on the target computer. #he .7+# ,ramework handles the details of locating and loading the components an application needs, even if several versions of the same application exist on the target computer. #he .7+# ,ramework ensures that all the components the application depends on are available on the computer before the application begins to execute.

....- 7+# ,64M+: 6M #he Microsoft .7+# ,ramework is a software component that can be added to or is included with the Microsoft :indows operating system. It provides a large body of preFcoded solutions to common program re%uirements, and

manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework. #he .7+# ,ramework is a key Microsoft offering, and is intended to be used by most new applications created for the :indows platform. #he preFcoded solutions that form the framework"s class library cover a large range of programming needs in areas includingC user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. #he functions of the class library are used by programmers who combine them with their own code to produce applications. 5rograms written for the .7+# ,ramework execute in a software environment that manages the program"s runtime re%uirements. #his runtime environment, which is also a part of the .7+# ,ramework, is known as the !ommon *anguage 6untime D!*6E. #he !*6 provides the appearance of an application virtual machine, so that programmers need not consider the capabilities of the specific !58 that will execute the program. #he !*6 also provides other important services such as security mechanisms, memory management, and exception handling. #he class library and the !*6 together compose the .7+# ,ramework. #he framework is intended to make it easier to develop computer applications and to reduce the vulnerability of applications and computers to security threats. ,irst released in -AA-, it is included with :indows =5 S5-, :indows Server -AA. and :indows 2ista, and can be installed on most older versions of :indows. Microsoft .7+# ,ramework was designed with several intentionsC I Interoperability F ;ecause interaction between new and older applications is commonly re%uired, the .7+# ,ramework provides means to access functionality that is implemented in programs that execute outside the .7+# environment. 4ccess to ! M components is provided in the System.6untime.InteropServices and

System.+nterpriseServices namespaces of the framework, and access to other functionality is provided using the 5$Invoke feature.

!ommon 6untime +ngine F 5rogramming languages on the .7+# ,ramework compile into an

intermediate language known as the !ommon Intermediate *anguage, or !I* Dformerly known as Microsoft Intermediate *anguage, or MSI*E. In Microsoft"s implementation, this intermediate language is not interpreted, but rather compiled in a manner known as justFinFtime compilation D<I#E into native code. #he combination of these concepts is called the !ommon *anguage Infrastructure D!*IE, a specification; Microsoft"s implementation of the !*I is known as the !ommon *anguage 6untime D!*6E.

*anguage Independence F #he .7+# ,ramework introduces a !ommon #ype System, or !#S. #he !#S

specification defines all possible data types and programming constructs supported by the !*6 and how they may or may not interact with each other. ;ecause of this feature, the .7+# ,ramework supports development in multiple programming languages. #his is discussed in more detail in the .7+# languages section below.

;ase !lass *ibrary F #he ;ase !lass *ibrary D;!*E, sometimes referred to as the ,ramework !lass

*ibrary D,!*E, is a library of types available to all languages using the .7+# ,ramework. #he ;!* provides classes which encapsulate a number of common functions, including file reading and writing, graphic rendering, database interaction and =M* document manipulation.

Simplified &eployment F Installation of computer software must be carefully managed to ensure that it

does not interfere with previously installed software, and that it conforms to increasingly stringent security re%uirements. #he .7+# framework includes design features and tools that help address these re%uirements.

CHAPTER . S-STEM ANAL-SIS

#he primary goal of the system analyst is to improve the efficiency of the existing system. ,or that the study of specification of the re%uirements is very essential. ,or the development of the new system, a preliminary survey of the existing system will be conducted. Investigation done whether the upgradation of the system into an application program could solve the problems and eradicate the inefficiency of the existing system.

>.( ,+4SI;I*I#G S#8&G

#he initial investigation points to the %uestion whether the project is feasible. 4 feasibility is conducted to identify the best system that meets the all the re%uirements. #his includes an identification description, an valuation of the proposed systems and selection of the best system for the job. #he re%uirements of the system are specified with a set of constraints such as system objectives and the description of the out puts. It is then duty of the analyst to evaluate the feasibility of the proposed system to generate the above results. #hree key factors are to be considered during the feasibility study. >.(.( peration ,easibility 4n estimate should be made to determine how much effort and care will go into the developing of the system including the training to be given to the user. 8sually, people are reluctant to changes that come in their progression. #he computer initialiBation will certainly affected the turn over, transfer and employee job status. 9ence an additional effort is to be made to train and educate the users on the new way of the system. >.(.- #echnical ,easibility #he main consideration is to be given to the study of available resources of the organiBation where the software is to be implemented. 9ere the system analyst evaluates the technical merits of the system giving emphasis on the performance, 6eliability, maintainability and productivity. ;y taking the consideration before developing the proposed system, the resources availability of the organiBation was studied. #he organiBation was immense computer facilities e%uipped with sophisticated machines and the software hence this technically feasible. >.(.. +conomic ,easibility +conomic feasibility is the most important and fre%uently used method for evaluating the effectiveness of the proposed system. It is very essential because the main goal of the proposed system is to have economically better result along with increased efficiency. !ost benefit analysis is usually performed for this purpose. It is the comparative study of the cost verses the benefit and savings that are expected from the proposed system. Since the organiBation is well e%uipped with the re%uired hard ware, the project was found to be economically.

CHAPTER 0 S-STEM DESI"N System design is the solution to the creation of a new system. #his phase is composed of several systems. #his

phase focuses on the detailed implementation of the feasible system. It emphasis on translating design specifications to performance specification. System design has two phases of development logical and physical design. &uring logical design phase the analyst describes inputs DsourcesE, out puts DdestinationsE, databases Ddata soresE and procedures Ddata flowsE all in a format that meats the uses re%uirements. #he analyst also specifies the user needs and at a level that virtually determines the information flow into and out of the system and the data resources. 9ere the logical design is done through data flow diagrams and database design. #he physical design is followed by physical design or coding. 5hysical design produces the working system by defining the design specifications, which tell the programmers exactly what the candidate system must do. #he programmers write the necessary programs that accept input from the user, perform necessary processing on accepted data through call and produce the re%uired report on a hard copy or display it on the screen. ?.( * 3I!4* &+SI37 *ogical design of an information system shows the major features and also how they are related to one another. #he first step of the system design is to design logical design elements. #his is the most creative and challenging phase and important too. &esign of proposed system produces the details of the state how the system will meet the re%uirements identified during the system analysis that is, in the design phase we have to find how to solve the difficulties faced by the existing system. #he logical design of the proposed system should include the details that contain how the solutions can be implemented. It also specifies how the database is to be built for storing and retrieving data, what kind of reports are to be created and what are the inputs to be given to the system. #he logical design includes input design, output design, and database design and physical design ?.- I758# &+SI37

#he input design is the link between the information system and the user. It comprises the developing specification and procedures for data preparation and those steps are necessary to put transaction data into a usable form for processing data entry. #he activity of putting data into the computer for processing can be achieved by inspecting the computer to read data from a written or printed document or it can occur by having people keying the data directly into the system. #he design of input focuses on controlling the amount of input re%uired, controlling errors, avoiding delay, avoiding extra steps and keeping the process simple.

#he system needs the data regarding the asset items, depreciation rates, asset transfer, physical verification for various validation, checking, calculation and report generation.. #he error raising method is also included in the software, which helps to raise error message while wrong entry of input is done. So in input design the following things are considered.

database contains tables, where each table corresponds to one particular type of information. +ach piece of information in table is called a field or column. 4 table also contains records, which is a set of fields. 4ll records in a table have the same set of fields with different information. #here are primary key fields that uni%uely identify a record in a table. #here are also fields that contain primary key from another table called foreign keys.

It is also used to avoid insertion, deletion and updating anomalies. 4ll the tables have been normaliBed up to the third normal form. In short the rules for each of the three normal forms are as below. I ,irst normal form 4 relation is said to be in (7, if all the under lying domain of attributes contain simple individual values.

In the code testing the logic of the developed system is tested. ,or this every module of the program is executed to find an error. #o perform specification test, the examination of the specifications stating what the program should do and how it should perform under various conditions. 8nit testing focuses first on the modules in the proposed system to locate errors. #his enables to detect errors in the coding and logic that are contained within that module alone. #hose resulting from the interaction between modules are initially avoided. In unit testing step each module has to be checked separately. System testing does not test the software as a whole, but rather than integration of each module in the system. #he primary concern is the compatibility of individual modules. ne has to find areas where modules have been

designed with different specifications of data lengths, type and data element name. #esting and validation are the most important steps after the implementation of the developed system. #he system testing is performed to ensure that there are no errors in the implemented system. #he software must be executed several times in order to find out the errors in the different modules of the system. 2alidation refers to the process of using the new software for the developed system in a live environment i.e., new software inside the organiBation, in order to find out the errors. #he validation phase reveals the failures and the bugs in the developed system. It will be come to know about the practical difficulties the system faces when operated in the true environment. ;y testing the code of the implemented software, the logic of the program can be examined. 4 specification test is conducted to check whether the specifications stating the program are performing under various conditions. 4part from these tests, there are some special tests conducted which are given belowC 5eak *oad #estsC #his determines whether the new system will handle the volume of activities when the system is at the peak of its processing demand. #he test has revealed that the new software for the agency is capable of handling the demands at the peak time.
