COTS Products Used in the Proposed System

           COTS                          Version                            Provider
MySQL Server                   5.0                             Sun Microsystems
MS Windows XP                  2002                            Microsoft
Microsoft .NET Framework       2.0                             Microsoft

COTS Related Activities our Project Performs:

   Initial Filtering: This activity was performed in order to identify potential Database
     Management Systems. Initially we identified three potential products – MySQL,
     Oracle and MS Access
   Detail Assessment: Study of various features provided by the COTS product
     identified during the initial filtering. Various factors such as costs, concurrency
     features and scalability factors were considered. Developers experience and
     familiarity with the DBMS were considered and MySQL was chosen.
   Integration Testing: To check the feasibility of the front-end with our back-end
     (COTS: MySQL) with the help of working prototype was performed.
