Hi all,

I have trawled around a bit and I have seen contradicting posts on this.

For the URLyBIRD system where bookings should/must only be allowed within 48 hours of the start of the room vacancy, if the vacancy starts today I interpret this as meaning that we can no longer book it - is this correct?

Thanks,

Jon

Jon,

I think this is left to your own interpratation. Obviously document your choice and the reasons for choosing it.

I did URLyBird and I took 48 hours to mean (this may sound strange) 3 days (today/tomorrow/the day after tomorrow).

I'd say they could book a room all day today until midnight. Picture the weary business traveller getting knocked back on this evenings lodgings!

Must add that I made this 48 hour facility optional as I wasn't keen on adding unspecified business rules to the spec.

Hi Jon,

I'd interpret the rule as vacancy date included: vd-1, vd.

Regards,

Phil.
