CIT 597 Assignment 5: Writing a servet

Purposes of this assignment

General idea of the assignment

Re-implement your To Do list (from a previous assignment) as a servlet. The server will read and save the list as XML, just as before, but the results will be given to JSP to be written out as an HTML page and sent to a browser. This HTML page will act as your GUI.

If you have not previously installed Tomcat, now is the time to do so.


Your program must be able to do the following:

If your program had extra features, you may retain them, but no extra credit is offered..

Good programming style is expected and required. Here's a short handout from a couple of years back. [One style rule that isn't mentioned there: Individual methods should do computation or I/O, but not both.]


Due date:

Midnight Tuesday, November 3. I hope that you will be able to submit your project by posting it on Fling; but if not, Zip all your files and turn them in via Blackboard.
