PROJECT OVERVIEW

The insurance company needs to keep track of details of its target
companies, agents, policyholders, their premium payments and the various
products that are available with it. Hence it is under tremendous pressure
maintaining their dayto-day activities, which is currently being done
manually.

Entire records have to be updated timely, even a slight mistake could
complicate things. It is very difficult to handle bulk data since human
memory is weaker than electronic counter part. It is time consuming to
summarize these details to produce the reports. The Insurance management
system is a complete solution for organizations, which need to manage
insurance for resources avaliable. Organizes and tracks insurance vendors
and the policies provided under different coverage.

Hence there is need for an automated system, which can efficiently manage
the company, records, provides instant access and one that improves the
productivity. As a result of this automated system, the activities of the
company are performed with in the stipulated time and the reliable and
efficient service is ensured to its users.

SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

The transactions related to Life Insurance policies, premiums, policy
maturity, Agents management, Premium calculation , Agent locate, Branch
locator,Premium Calculation etc.,. transactions are done in an easy and
effective manner as most part of it is computerized and the manual labour of
entering transactions in ledger is not necessary

All these are to be automated and an application is required to relate all of
them relatively and logically so that the current system can be replaced and
accepted without major changes and problems.

The application should provide quick access to the records maintained and
must reveal the important reviews about the business so that the growth can
be easily compared and should provide with the various reports showing the
related details so that the important decisions could be taken easily.
Security of the stored information is achieved here. Only privileged
users can gain access to the stored information. Computers perform most of
the tasks and any information is made available at the users’ fingertips.
Storage of all the customer information and the transactions has been
computerized.

EXISTING SYSTEM

Existing Application does not help the Insurance Agents to Manage
Policy Transactions easily.

Existing Application does not helps the Agents to Monitor and perform
transaction easily.

In the Customer view, it does not provides the Customers with their
personal account through which they can perform the Transactions.

Manual maintenance of records

Very complex and manual calculation of policy premium

time consuming to summarize these details to produce the reports

Difficult to handle and manage bulk data.

Difficult to Organizes and tracks insurance and the policies provided
under different coverage
If customer requests for any clarification the person in charge has to
search through the written records and fetch the details regarding that
particular customer, which is time consuming and cumbersome.

Security of the information maintained is comparatively less.

Maintenance of the ledgers occupy large space

PROPOSED SYSTEM

a) Helps the Agents to maintain the details of all the Policy Holders
electronically.

b) This project helps the Customers to be aware of the dues and also the
previous payment details made for Updating Policy ,Policy Maturity,
Policy lapse, Policy renewal etc .

c) The application will provide quick access to the records for customer to
maintain and reveal the important reviews about the policies.

d) It provides for effective maintenance of records regarding customers,
regarding customers, transactions etc. Initially it may cost more but
proves to be cost effective in the long run.
e) Helps to Provide with the various reports showing the related details so
that the important decisions could be taken easily.

f) Application should provide quick access to the records
maintained and must reveal the important review

g) High Security to sensitive and important data

Unlike other programming systems . Java makes itself simple by not having surprising features. Java was designed to be easy for the professional programmers to learn and use efficiently. the programmers can perform his desired action without fear. which are explained in the following paragraphs: Simple and powerful. Since it exposes the internal working of the machine. HARDWARE REQURIEMENTS Processor : Pentium 4 or Higher Mouse : PS2/USB Mouse Monitor : VGA Monitor RAM : 512 MB Hard disk : 40 GB Clock Speed : 600 MHz Keyboard : Normal / Multimedia keyboard ABOUT SOFTWARE Why Java is selected? Java was designed to meet all the real world requirements with its key features.

To achieve this. Many types of computers and operating systems are used throughout the world and are connected to the Internet. Java was not designed to be source code compatible with any other language.that provide dozens of complicated ways to perform a simple task. Java supports . Java provides a small number of clear ways to achieve a given task. the same mechanism that gives security helps in portability. Java was designed to meet the real-world requirements of creating interactive. networked programs. ust Multithreaded. In Java. The object model in Java is simple and easy to extend. Using Java Compatible Browser. Object-oriented. some portable. Java team gave a clean. Portable. are kept as high-performance non-objects. Java achieves this protection by confining a Java program to Java execution environment and by making it inaccessible to other parts of the computer. realistic approach to objects. anyone can safety download applets without fear of viral infections or malicious intent. For downloading programs through different platforms connected o the Internet. executable ode is needed. usable. while simple types. such as integers. Java’s answer to these problems is its well-designed architecture. Secure Today everyone is worried about safety and security.

which allows user to write programs that perform many function simultaneously. multithreaded programming. .

and are not specific to any processor SERVLETS: A servlet is a web component. forever” and as a result the Java Virtual Machine was developed. in conjunction with a web server or application server. not the multitasking subsystem. A main issue for the designers was that of code longevity and portability. anytime. Since Java is architecture-neutral it generates byte code that resembles machine code. platform independent Java classes compiled to an architecture neutral byte code that can be loaded dynamically into and run by a web server. decodes MIME based requests. and formats MIME based responses. Servlets are small.The Java run-time system enables the user to construct smoothly running interactive systems. One of the main problems is the execution speed of the program. managed by a container that generates dynamic content. Java’s easy-to-use approach to multithreading allows the user to think about the specific behavior of his own program. A servlet container can either be built into a host web server or installed as an add-on component to a Web . The servlet container. This request- response model is based on the behavior of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). Servlets interact with web clients via a request response paradigm implemented by the servlet container. A servlet container also contains and manages servlets through their lifecycle. The Java designers worked hard in attaining their goal “ write once. run anywhere. provides the network services over which requests and responses are set.

All servlet containers must support HTTP as a protocol for requests and responses. these restrictions should be placed using the permission architecture defined by Java 2 Platform. A Servlet Container may place security restrictions on the environment that a servlet can executed In a Java 2 Platform Standard Edition 1. but may also support other request / response based protocols such as HTTPS (HTTP over SSL). It is strongly suggested that containers implement the HTTP/1. Servlet Containers can also be built into or possibly installed into webenabled Application Servers. JAVA SERVER PAGES: Java Server Pages™ technology is the Java™ technology in the J2EE platform for building applications containing dynamic Web content such as HTML. DHTML.0. .3 (J2EE) environment. For example. such as the creation of a Thread object. high end application servers may limit certain action. XHTML and XML. to insure that other components of the container are not negatively impacted.1 specification as well. The Java Server Pages technology provides a textual description for the creation of a response from a request. The Java Server Pages technology enables the authoring of Web pages that create dynamic content easily but with maximum power and flexibility.Server via that server’s native extension API.2 (J2SE) or Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition 1. The minimum required version of the HTTP specification that a container must implement is HTTP/1.

You can author JSP pages on any platform. Web servers. BENEFITS OF JSP: Write Once. Run Anywhere™ properties The Java Server Pages technology is platform independent.The JSP file extension is . Separation of dynamic and static content .jsp and creates a Java servlet source file. Any time after this the special compiled servlet is executed and is therefore returns faster. both in its dynamic Web pages. and access them from any Web browser. It then compiles the source file into a class file. run them on any Web server or Web enabled application server. The JSP engine parses the .html. this is done the first time and this why the JSP is probably slower the first time it is accessed. and its underlying server components.jsp rather than .htm or .

Actions permit the encapsulation of useful functionality in a convenient form that can also be manipulated by tools. Web access layer for N-tier enterprise application architecture(s) The Java Server Pages technology is an integral part of the Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE). The problem must be state clearly. It must state the objectives the user is trying to achieve and the result the user wants to see. understood and agreed upon by the user and the analyst. which brings Java technology to enterprise computing. . The System entitled “INSURANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM”. PROBLEM DEFINATION The first step in an initial investigation is to define the problem that led the user request. Support for scripting and actions The Java Server Pages technology supports scripting elements as well as actions. scripts provide a mechanism to glue together this functionality in a per-page manner. The Java Server Pages technology enables the separation of static content from dynamic content that is inserted into the static template. to be developed is intended to be a Web based application to help users the easy and efficient way of maintaining the records and the details of their reports and to provide a Satisfied service to the quality controller.

By considering all these things the proposed new system is operationally feasible. date of birth. and also policy details of various costumers enrolled for policies avaliable. website should provide management facilities like delete unwanted data such as of agents. the likelihood the system will be useful to the organization. From the beginning of this new system we made users to involve in some way reducing the resistance. Because of the persons in the organization has been facing problems with the existing system there is no resistance to the change. FEASIBILITY STUDY Preliminary investigation examines project feasibility. And also the current methods are not acceptable to the users that are why they are welcoming to the new system. Policy details. in fact they request it. residence address. Insured persons. Technical feasibility: .The developed system should allow admin users to register agents persons with their name. insurers’ list and also should provide awareness to the visitors about various insurance through articles . Feasibility report is the important outcome of the preliminary investigation. After registering all the insured persons. There are three aspects of feasibility study. Operational feasibility: There is lot of support from management. The new system will not cause any problems in any way and also will show efficient performance in all respects.

By considering the above reasons the proposed new system is economically feasible. It is not a burden rather than that of existing system. The cost to implement the proposed system is one time investment later they need not spent any more. The proposed new system can easily be expanded to satisfy the new requirements in future. SYSTEM ANALYSIS . accuracy and reliability in the new system rather than existing system. The cost that may spend if the new system was not developed is greater than the cost of the new system. The proposed equipment can safely handle the data required to use the new system. The organization must get benefit if they invest on the proposed system development. By considering the above reasons the proposed new system is technically feasible. There is lot of security. cost of hardware and software and the cost of user training. Economic feasibility: The cost to implement this new system includes cost of full systems investigation. As this proposed system has passed all the three aspects of feasibility study we can declare it as a feasible project. There is no technology and equipment to implement the new system but it can be acquired.

System is a orderly grouping of independent components linked together according to a plan to achieve a specific object. During analysis. Once an analysis is completed. SYSTEM REQUIREMENT SPECIFICATION Modules Description . and the output document of one step serves as input to the next step. The process of developing a computer based information system is a step-by- step approach it begins with logical design and gradually moves to physical design specific documentation associated with each step in the process. System analysis concerned with investigation. Analysis is detailed study of various operations performed by a system and their relationships within and outside of the system and determining whether or not a candidate system should conceder other related systems. Once an analysis is completed. designing and evaluating the system. The step in system development is explained with their respective criteria. the next step is to decide is problem might be solved. decision points and transactions handled by the present system. A system records and process data then provides information from it.System analysis provides major planning elements in preparation of data processing system. data are collected on the available files. the next step is to decide how the problem might be solved. analyzing.

System Design is multistep process that focuses on the data structure software architecture procedural detail and interface between the models. b) Premium Calculator : This allows both customer and agents to calculate Premium for various plans c) Locate Branch : This allows both customer and agents to locate various branches of insurance company d) Locate Agent : This allows customer to locate agents by giving area pin SYSTEM DESIGN The most creative and challenging phase of the system life cycle is system design. The term design describes a final system and the process by which it is developed. It refers to the technical specification that will be applied in implementing the candidate system. New User Registration Module This module allows a new customer to register to this website freely Other Information modules a) Plan information : This allows both Agent and Customer to know the plans information and it’s descriptions. The main step in design is to determine how the output to be produced and in what format.

In turn. Logical Design 2. they specify the user needs at a level of details that virtually determines the information flow into and out of the system and the required data resources. performs the necessary calculations through the existing file or data-base . Physical System Design: Physical design produces the working system by defining the design specifications that tell the programmers exactly what the candidate system must do. Structural Design 1.The design process also translates the requirements into the representation of the software that can be accessed for quality before coding begins. the programmer writes the necessary programs or modifies the software package that accepts input from the user. When analyst prepares the logical system design. produces the . Physical Design 3. 2. Logical Design: Logical design describes the inputs outputs databases and procedural all in a format that meets user requirements. Computer software design is relatively easily in its evaluation. software methodology lacks the dependent flexibility and quantitative nature that is normally associated with classical engineering design disciplines. System design goes through three phases of development:- 1. Therefore.

the next step is the definition of modules and their relationships to one another in a form called a structure chart. using a data dictionary and other structured tools. The system specifications then are used as a basis for the graphic representation. The source or sink is represented as a rectangular box. The approach begins with a system specification that identifies input and outputs and describes the functional aspects of the system. The DFD shows the flow of data through a system. . Notations in the DFD : Symbol Description The circle or bubble represents a process. A process is named and each process is represented by a named circle.data flow diagram (DFD).report on a hard copy or displays it on the screen. DATAFLOW DIAGRAMS Data Flow Diagram : The Data Flow Diagrams are commonly used during problem Analysis. The source or sink is the net originator or the consumer of the data that flows in the system. A DFD is very useful in understanding the system effectively. 3. Structural Design: Structured design is a data-flow-based methodology. From the DFD. and maintains an updated data base at all the times.

Entities and their relationships are modelled . ENTITY-RELATIONSHIP An Entity – Relationship (ER) diagram is a specialized graphic that illustrates the inter relationship between entities in a database. They are : Name Notation Description An entity is single object about which data can be stored it is the Entity “subject“ of a table. ER diagrams often used symbols to represent three different types of information.

By using the concept of Database. The major purpose of a database is to provide the information. which can be of any size and complexity. which utilizes it with the information’s that the system needs according to its own requirements. MySQL is a relational database managements system (RDBMS) that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases. Database Design: Database design is done before building it to meet needs of end-users within a given information-system that the database is intended to support. The database is physically implemented using MySQL. Database: A Database is collection of related data. we can easily store and retrieve the data. The database for Insurance System is organized into 7 tables: agent_info Nul Defau Field Type l lt varchar(3 agent_id 5) Yes varchar(3 password 5) Yes NULL . The database design defines the needed data and data structures that such a database comprises.

below given are some test case details. Inventions. TEST CASE DETAILS Unit testing was carried on all units of “Computerization of manufacturing pharmaceutical products “. test reports were generated indicating the behavior of each unit. Some errors were detected in the function. System testing was followed by this specific set of data that was selected for the testing. Marketing and reports. All 3 modules have finite number of functions. for all modules unit testing was carried out. with each test. which were solved efficiently. . 2 0) Yes varchar(3 city 5) Yes state varchar(3 Yes 5) varchar(2 country 0) Yes varchar(6 pincode ) Yes varchar(1 phone 0) Yes varchar(1 mobile 2) Yes varchar(4 email 0) Yes date_of_birth dateYes varchar(2 occupation 0) Yes annual_incomint(11) Yes SOFTWARE TESTING This software product consist modules. Cultivation.

Later individual functions were used put together and made to behave properly gaining exact results. Test case Result • When character is Please enter number Entered in a number Field • When any data is Please fill all records Left blank • When no record is there No record left to delete UNIT TESTING Unit testing is nothing but testing each module with both valid and invalid data.The need for performing a integrated testing is to find the overall performance of the system. Unit testing is the most important testing when considered with other forms of testing. Appropriate message will be displayed for invalid test case and result is produced for the valid ones. This integrated testing was done with the sample data . INTEGRATED TESTING After completing all sorts of test cases on all the forms they all are integrated to form the result. .

BLACK BOX TESTING Black box testing is done in order to some of the following types of errors • Missing functions or an incorrect function. • Performance error • Initialization error and Termination error. using this white box testing the following test cases were successfully tested to this project • Checking weather all independent paths within the module have been exercised at least once or not • All conditions are executing or not • Exercise internal data structure to ensure their validity All possible validity checks are given or not. WHITE BOX TESTING White box testing is another type of testing technique used to find errors in a application. SCREEN SHOTS . • Interface error. • Error in the external database access.
