Project The student will be required to design, implement, test, evaluate and document a small database driven web application (e.g. B2C e-commerce site). The solution will be developed incrementally in three stages. The first stage will require the student to design and develop a static version of the selected application. The second stage will involve the addition of dynamic behaviour and database connectivity and the third stage will require the student to apply evaluation criteria to the application. 1,2,3 50.00 0 0 n/a 0
