Hi
I know its not the topic of this forum but i dont know where should i put it.
anyone has the idea about Wizard. I am working on the general wizard which helps the user to identify the product of his/her own choice.
I have designed the screens for user interface but I am little bit confused how to link the question/queries to next question/queries.
I will appreciate if anybody can share his/her experience with me.

Do you want to make that wizard on any website or in any other application?

My web site will be selling the products to the customer.
This wizard will help the customer to buy the product of his own choice.
like I am a customer and I want to buy a mobile but dont know for which model I sould go. So I come down to your shop and say I want to buy a mobile. Then u can ask these type of question like
what is ur buying range?
Backup time, Which Brand U like, etc.etc.
after asking a series of question I can reach to a model which might be suitable for me. Ofcourse I can choose the model in between also.
I mean to say, this wizard will be helpful to those customers which dont know for which model they should go or they r looking for?

You can define a different set of questions for different products and when user come to buy a product you can query the questions accordingly or you can make a set of questions that are common for all products and after those pet questions you can ask the other related question of product.

A true expert system can be created using a rule engine. See, for example, http://herzberg.ca.sandia.gov/jess . If your "wizard" is fairly simple, it's easy enough to code by hand; as it becomes more complex, and if you'll need to add, remove, and modify products over time, using a rule engine makes more sense.

"Rajat"-
Welcome to the JavaRanch! We like to keep a nice professional lookin' image... (we don't want anyone to show up the Moose). So, can you please adjust your displayed name to match the JavaRanch Naming Policy? Basically it should be a believeable and not obviously fictitious first and last name.
You can change it here.
Thanks! and again welcome to the JavaRanch!
