Flight Reservation Application
You are tasked with implementing a fight booking and monitoring application from scratch. You will use all tools at your disposal to create a Single Page Application front end that will be supported by a Spring based application hosting REST endpoints. You will be required to handle user profiles, track live updating flight data, provide the capacity to book flights, verify correct information, provide the user with informative messages in the case of an error, visualize the flight paths of various flights, create a pathing algorithm to allow users to book collections of viable flights with viable layovers in order to reach their destination in the shortest time possible, and allow a user to review their flight history.
The intent of this project is to create an interface for users to book flights.
The idea of a flight is greatly simplified from reality.
In this world, the flights will only go to four cities: Orlando, Miami, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville
A new set of five flights is generated every "day"
A day is defined in the FlightService
A day lasts as long as the @Scheduled annotation indicates, feel free to change this value to assist in your testing
A flight has a origin, destination, flight time, and offset
The origin is the city the flight departs from
The destination is the city the flight lands in
The flight time is the number of hours the flight spends in the air
The offset is the number of hours the flight waits from the beginning of the day until the flight departs
Create a database named "ftd_flight"
Run the project to generate tables
Data should be populated into the "location" table based on the entries in the "data.sql" file
Create a website where any visitor can see the up to date list of available flights
The list of available flights must updated in real time
Allow a user to create a profile and log in to that profile
If a user logs in, allow them to search for flights between an origin and destination city
The results of this search must be updated in real time
The app must find a flight or series of flights (in the case of layovers) that will get the user from the origin to the destination the fastest
A layover of zero is not valid
If there is no possible route, the user must be made aware that they cannot travel to that destination from their origin at this time
Once an itinerary is presented to the user, the user must be given the option to book the itinerary
The user must have a page that displays all of their previously booked itineraries, the total flight time, and the total layover time
The user must be given the option to view their booked itinerary on a map as provided by the MapController
In the scenario of a multi-flight itinerary, lines must be displayed with a different color for each branch of the journey
Information must be provided on the map template page that shows the user the order the line segments occur in, the flight time for that segment, and the layover time in each particular city
Starting the Project
In order to start the project, you must
- In Eclipse, run
com.cooksys.FlightApplication.javaas a Spring Boot Project
- In the command prompt, navigate to the
uidirectory inside the project
npm install --save
- In the browser, navigate to
If the project has started successfully, you should see a page with a map on it. This map should have four cities in Tennessee connected by lines of different colors.
