Background of the hotel Riviera • The Riviera resort is a Tourist Resort. It is located in the charming fishing town of Batticaloa, in the eastern coastal district of Sri Lanka. This resort was established in 2000.
This resort has 38 rooms with all the Facilities. • There are double single and family rooms with attached bathrooms. There are in door and out door games facilities with swimming pool. Air-conditioned rooms too are available.

So they are facing the following problems. • Difficult to handle data accurately and security because of the data lost, viewing by unauthorized people, can’t collect the data at the time.
Day to day current system is very costly • So security wise is not guarantee to all information and data’s. • If customer wants search their details it very difficult • Processing delay • Not easy to handle room details • Storage problems • Unable to analyze past data • (Update, Search, Delete, Edit), these types of methods are not accessible and not carry with the manual method
Introduction to Online Hotel Management System (OHMS) • To resolve the current problems the Hotel decided to do in Fashionable way so that they no their situation.

Method of Analysis • E-R Diagrams • Relations/Tables • Data Flow Diagram • Context Diagram (0 Level DFD) • Level 1 DFD • Level 1 DFD • Flow Charts
Data Flow Diagram (DFD) • Data Flow diagrams are a network representation of a system. • Four entities that must be represented are: • Data flows: movement of data in the system • Data stores: data repositories for data that is not moving • Processes: transforms of incoming data flows to out going data flows • External entities: sources or destinations outside the specified system boundary
Technology Used in the SOSM System • The technologies that should be taken into consideration when implementing the system are as follows:- • Re-usability • Efficiency and performance
Tools to be used in developing the system • Graphic Editor Software • Adobe Photoshop will be used as a graphic editor. Since it is not complex to work and it has more sophisticated features. • Web Development Tool • Macromedia Dreamweaver version 8 will be used for web development tool.
Development Language Requirements • Familiarity • Web Support • Rapid Development • Execution Speed and Efficiency
Database Software SQL Server 2000 and MS Access were selected as the database software for this project out of the available software in the market.
Operating System • Windows is selected as the operating system software since it works well or run well PHP and VB.
Programming Language • PHP – Hypertext Pre-processor:-PHP is a server-side scripting language. Although it was originally designed to run under Linux using the Apache Web server. • VB (Visual Basic) language for Administrators perspective reservation system.
Apache as the Web Server The Apache Web Server, maintain by the Apache Software foundation, is currently the most popular Web server because its stability, efficiency, portability, security and small size and mainly it is Open Source.
Design • Software Architecture, • Input and Output Design, • Interface Design and • Security Design

Implementation Plan This plan describes how the developed system will be deployed. It contains an overview of the system, Implementation
The system to be implemented is an Online Hotel Management for Hotel Reveira. • It is a web-base and a Visual Basic developed to run on a PHP/MySQL/Apache server and in Visual Basic. • This is developed to assist the company in providing a better reservation service to their manages,and to the Customers also.
Major task required for the implementation of the system • Providing overall planning and co-ordination for the implementation. • Providing appropriate training for personnel • Ensuring that the user manual is available for the implementation effort • Ensuring that all prerequisites are met. • Performing data conversion before loading the data into the developed system.
Description of the implementation • Firstly, the web server software (Apache) and database software (Mysql) are checked if they are present, if unavailable, they are installed. • PHP and VB software is deployed • The System developed is then implemented.
Also instead of using above first three steps you can use the Xampp, which is consider a open source package that comes with the Apache server mysql database as a configured one. • Import a Database backup. • The system implemented is tested in the client PC’s.
Implementation of Database • The database tables were successfully created using My SQL and MS Access. • All the tables mentioned were designed and implemented appropriately with the appropriate fields and their data types.
Testing and Evaluation • Component Testing The program deals with database and some ActiveX controls and references some runtime libraries therefore it was essential to test if they are properly referenced or not. • installed Visual Basic 6.0 and Crystal Reports on the target test machine and run the system. All of them were successfully running without any problems
Integration Testing • This test was mainly carried out to see the links between a forms and reports in the system. There are a number of different forms and reports linked together. So it was necessary to check the operability of the links found on the multiple document interface (MDI) form.
This testing mainly focused to check whether links between the forms and reports in the system work correctly. There are two kinds of test within this testing process.
Test links from the MDI form to other forms: when the user clicks on the menu, it will call respective form. • For example: when the user clicks on “Guest” menu, it will open Guest window.
Future • Mobile Reservations • Virtual Reality • Adding ERP and BPR
