Abstract

The objective of this project is to develop a system which enables commercial transactions for products directly at the point of sale. The solution should permit the remote generation of checks on customer registration; condition and availability of product stock; placing of orders; delivery confirmation to the central base evolving from the sales venue; generation and issue of receipt referring to all the transactions, with printing to be carried out on the delivery van through an on-board printer. The On Line Sales Tool system uses Java (J2EE) language for the development of the application; Java (J2ME) for the development of the collector (PDAs) applications; GSM or CDMA technology for the remote integration of the collectors with the application server; the MySQL server as database; Jboss on the application server; and Linux as operating system. The ultimate expectation is to obtain a system that runs remote real time/online communication with the central database, so as to carry out customer checks and transactions, using for this purpose PDFAs and communication via GSM or GDMA. The possibility of implementing open source platforms in the architectonic make-up of the solution will make possible a system the final price for which should consist merely of the license for the operational use of the application and the cost of customization and parameterization, which, it is hoped, will lead to the popularization of the product.
