Hi guys,

I have implemented the 48 hour rule.

Now my question is should I have some way for user to disable it ?

The reason behind my thinking is that if I don't put some way of disabling it then the testers are gonna have an awful job trying to find a room they can actually book.

Either they will have to create some records with a suitable date themselves ( which they obviously won't be able to do using the UI) or to wait to test it till a day where one of the rooms becomes valid

But seriously anyone done this ?

I mean it doesn't make sense to have such an option on the UI really.

I could do any of the following :
* Not implement and document it as its not required
* Implement it and leave it at that (tester would have work to do)
* Implement it and have way to disable it on UI
* Give warning when you book something outside of 48 but allow it anyway.

Thoughts ?

Hum.... I think the guys from Sun will probably have their own version of database with lot's of good testing entries.

If you are taking the Url&Bird exam, you should design your application as if the database of available rooms is mantained by another system, for example, a mainframe.

Good point.

I think I'll implement the rule and let them worry about the testing.

Cheers
