E-commerce Application Description

This test models an e-commerce web site that sells items from a large inventory. It uses the standard web application model-view-controller design pattern for its implementation: the user interface (that is, the view) is handled by 16 different JSP pages which interface with a single master control servlet. The servlet maintains JDBC connections to the database, which serves as the model and handles 27 different queries. The JSP pages make extensive use of JSP tag libraries and comprise almost 2000 lines of logic.
