North Star Bulletin Board System

North Star Bulletin Board System



Abstarct
North Star Bulletin Board System (NSBBS) is a bulletin board available on Internet to post the user's opinions on any topic and share the ideas with others.  This is a forum where intelligentsia will meet and participate in discussing various issues related to any topic.
The NSBBS allows people to communicate with each other at their leisure unlike chat rooms where you always have to be online. They also allow you to become more versatile if you run a business. The NSBBS could be utilized for tech support, public relations and marketing. And if you’re an educational or non-profit organization, forums can keep your students or members informed and up-to-date on current events. People using forums for personal use can easily stay in touch with family members and friends.
The NSBBS is a Java (J2SE, J2EE) based Web application. It is useful to create a bulletin board system that is fast, efficient, easy to use for both admins and general users, and packed with numerous useful features (profiles, PM system, mass deletion, polls, censor lists, ranking system, e-mail notifications, emoticons, avatars, etc).
The North Star Bulletin Board System (NSBBS) is a Java (J2SE, J2EE) based Web application. My goals in mind were to create a bulletin board system that is fast, efficient, easy to use for both admins and general users, and packed with numerous useful features (profiles, PM system, mass deletion, polls, censor lists, ranking system, e-mail notifications, emoticons, avatars, etc). For a more in-depth review of features, please scroll lower to the section below entited NSBBS Features Overview
Existing System:
The existing system is a system which uses mailing facility to interact the customers for Marketing, Product Reviews and the Product Support. All the mails were being done manually. We can’t organize the mails in proper manner and send the responses to the customers. Sending the mails to lot of person by manually typing all the address is a tedious task.
The administrator gathers all the MailIDs of the customers and send all the try to promote the product by manually mailing to all the persons. If a customer wants to buy a product after getting feedback from the
customers he has to know the mailed of the customer who has bought and use that product earlier and he has make a mail to that customer and get the product details. This is also known as product reviews. It is very difficult for customer to know the product review details if he follows the above prodecdure.
If the customer wants to contact the company people for product support then he also needs to contact the company people by manually mailing and the specify the problem to which he needs the support for a particular product. Again the company people also provide the support to the customer in the same way.
To make this laborious job simple a web based software system has to be developed.
Proposed System:
The first step of analysis process involves the identification of need. The success of a system depends largely on how efficiently the companies can contact their customers and provide different types services in an efficient way and user-friendly manner. A problem is defined, thoroughly investigated and properly carried out through the choice of solution.
This package has been developed in order to overcome the difficulties encountered while using the manual system. This application makes the customer to easily get the support reply after the problem is posted in the Bulletin Board System with out using mails. Any customer can see the product reviews of a product by visiting support requests and the responses.
Project Scope and Objectives:
Ø    NBBS is a tool to communicate with more no of customer and provide all the services effectively.
Ø    To provide entrepreneurs and businesses world-wide with the Internet's most useful Business Bulletin Boards that reduces the user interaction work.
Ø    The wastage of time is reduced.
Ø  It also helps in optimizing the manual work and it also increases the productivity by providing these services online.
Ø  It provides high security for the application by providing username and password for the customers to reduce unauthorized access for the support.
