Homework 2
CS320, Fall 2004

Due: Thursday, Oct 14

Please upload your files using the online turnin server. The files should include all the source code, documentation, and an HTML file hw2.html, which contains a link to your servlet on the CS server. Note that file uploading will be disabled automatically after 11:59PM of the due date, so please turn in your work on time.


A useful online calendar must provide some basic features, such as support for multiple users, and support for each user to add to a calendar their own tasks and events. Note that we use the term events to refer to things that are associated with certain time period, for example, "Taking CS320 from 1:30 to 3:30pm on Thursday", and the term tasks to refer to things that are not, for example, "Buy some milk".

In this homework, you are going to build on your Calendar servlet from Homework 1 and add priliminary multi-user support, as well as functionalities that allow a user to manage tasks.

[Login] (30pt)

To access the calendar, a user must provide a valid username and corresponding password. It is completely up to you to decide whether to implement this part with one servlet, two servlets, or some combination of servlets and HTML pages. However, whatever implemention you choose, it has to meet the following requirements: [Tasks] (50pt)

Modify your calendar interface so that a user can add a new task or delete an existing task. For example:

September 2004

2 3 4
5 6 7 8 9 10 11
12 13 14 15 16 17 18
19 20 21 22 23 24 25
26 27 28 29 30

Note that the interface design is up to you, and particularly good design will receive up to 15pt extra credit. Also note that you do not have to save the tasks once the session is terminated - we'll leave that for a later assignment when we start using databases.
