Web Application Development (COMP5347)
Assignment 1: Bookstore Web Page
In this assignment, you will demonstrate that you have the basic understanding of the core
client-side technologies (HTML, CSSand JavaScript) and are able to create aHTML pages with
desirable style and certain interactive features. You will be given a small start file set, which
contains a complete CSS file and a skeleton HTML file. Your task is to produce an online
bookstore Web page that implements the below requirements without using any third-party CSS
frameworks or JavaScript libraries.
Main Requirements
The following functionalities must be implemented in your Web page:
• The main page should display the main information of each book including a
thumbnail picture, title, author, year, price, publisher and category. (See Figure 1 as
an example).
• End users can search books with their titles. The rows that match the search term will
be highlighted with a colored background. (see Figure 2 as an example)
• End users should be able to filter books through their categories. The list of category
works like a dropdown and should cover an extra category that is currently not in the
bookstore for boundary test use. Meanwhile, end users should always have the option
to return to the default status (display all books no matter which category they
belong to).(see Figure 3 as an example)
• The functions of the search and filter should be able to work together and combine
the result of each other. (See Figure 4 as an example).

based on the end user actions (see Figure 5 as an example).

Design and Implementation Requirements
The online book store data and required thumb images are prepared in the zip file. The layout
does not have to be the same as the example in Figure 1. For instance, you may modify the
given CSS file to have slightly different color scheme, border and text styles.
You should consider the behavior of boundary cases and design suitable UI changes to notify
the end users (e.g. an alarm). Sample boundary cases include, but are not restricted to the
• Search term does not appear in any title

Each function mentioned above should work on the output of other functions.
