Problem Statement:

You are required to write a Java program, named BookShop, to purchase online CS506 course’s helping material. In this program a user can add and remove items to the BookShop Cart. The program will calculate the total bill as the items are added or removed from shopping cart and will display the amount via user friendly interface on real time basis. All orders will be saved in MS Access database so that the administrator could process the orders properly.


Detailed Description:

At start, your program will display a GUI (i.e. Graphical User Interface) which should contain options for selecting quantity of products, sample is given in Figure 1.


Fig. 1: BookShop Cart GUI


Here, the customer can select the quantity (i.e. 0 to 10) for available products by clicking on add (+) or remove (–) buttons. Sample is given in Figure 2.

Fig. 2: BookShop Cart GUI


The cart should be updated on each action and correct amount after calculating the number of items, subtotal, shipping charges (shipping charges are given below) and grand total should be displayed. Sample is given in Figure 3.

Fig. 3: BookShop Cart GUI

When user clicks on "Place Order" then the program should check whether the cart contains any item or not. If cart is empty, then a message "Cart is empty!" should be displayed. Sample is given in Figure 4.


Fig. 4: Cart is Empty


Otherwise, order details will be saved to MS Access database file and interface will be updated with initial values (i.e. zero quantity for each item and zero in amount fields etc.) as well. Sample is given in Figure 5.

Further, cross icon at top right corner of the interface should terminate the program and show the developer information (i.e. Student Id and name) via message dialog.

Required Stuff:

Java Classes:

  • id: int
  • name: String
  • price: float
  • quantity: int
  • Constructors: default and parameterized constructor
  • Standard Setters: setId(…), setName(…), setPrice(…), setQuantity(…)
  • Standard Getters: getId(), getName(), getPrice(), getQuantity()

  • cartItems: ArrayList
  • Constructors: default constructor
  • Member Functions: addItem(…), removeItem(…), getItemsList(), emptyCart(), getProductIndex(…), getQuantity(…) (should contain all database related code)

  • FILE: String
  • Member Functions: getConnectionStatement(…), addOrder(…),

fetchProductsData(…) (Contains GUI Code)

  • Data Members: All Required
  • Constructors: default
  • Member Functions: updateStatus(…), updateBill(), addOrder(), developerInfo(), All Event Handling Functions (should contain Main method)


Database file:

Sample Data:



Price (Rs)





Reference Book









Tab. 1: Sample Products Data




No of Items

Shipping Charges (Rs)

6 to 10



11 to 15



16 to 20

26 to 30



31 to 35



More than 35



Tab. 2: Sample Shipping Charges






Tab. 3: Products Table in MS Access Database file


Tab. 4: Orders Table in MS Access Database file

Important Things to Implement:              

  • For GUI, relevant components (i.e. JFrame, JPanel, JButton, JTextField and JLable etc.) from AWT and Swing packages should be used.
  • You will have to use ucanaccess driver to connect to MS Access database. In this case, you are suggested to view the video tutorial having title “A video tutorial for installation of UCanAccess Driver.” by downloading it from downloads section of CS506 course.
  • For storing/fetching data to/from database, you will need to use proper SQL queries.
  • You can use same Product and Cart Java classes as provided in assignment # 1 and also can make changes as required.
  • Java classes must have proper Data Members and Member Functions along with Constructors, Standard Setters and Getters etc.
  • Need to make sure that exceptions are managed properly throughout the program; especially NullPointerException, ClassNotFoundException and SQLException.
  • All images, tables and sample data, given in this document, are just for reference purpose only. You have to provide your own implementations. It is not required to be exactly the same.
