Hi,

"It must allow the user to search the data for all records, or for records where the name and/or location fields exactly match values specified by the user"

As per the above statement, if the customer asks for the service say Air Conditioning, then the system should display all the records where this service is the only speciality and also the records where this service is one of the speciality of the contractor.

Then which means the customer books a contractor (whose speciality is Painting and Air Conditioning) for Air Conditioning service actually blocks the other customer who is in need of Painting. Say Painting is not the speciality of any other contractors, then for the other customer, display will be empty when he searches for Painting.

Is this the actual real world problem, we handle?

Please clarify me on this.

Thanks,
Preethy Sekhar

I'm not sure where you read it, but I don't think looking through the specialty field is even part of the requirement. From what I understand is that you only need to be able to look on name and/or location fields.

I agree with Kah Tang, searching the specialty field is not a requirement of the assignment.

Hi,

Thanks for your replies.

"They take requests from home owners for a type of service, and offer the homeowner one or more contractors that can provide the required services"

According to this, I feel speciality field plays a role in this assignment.

"It must allow the user to search the data 'for all records', or 'for records where the name and/or location fields exactly match values' specified by the user"

I feel here the "data" mainly refers to the specialty field. (ie., type of service needed by the customer).

Suppose customer needs Painting service. And Painting service is provided by Contractors NameA, locA and NameB, locB. Then choosing any one of the contractors by specifying the name and location, in order to book.

Please confirm me whether my assumptions are right.

Thanks,
Preethy Sekhar
